The next time you fly commercial—say, on a transatlantic flight from the U.S. to Europe—imagine what it would be like to completely gut renovate the plane and bring it back to life as a luxurious private jet.

Well, that’s exactly what TCS World Travel did to its newly launched Boeing 757, which transformed from a 233-passenger commercial aircraft to a spacious 52-seat haven. Each passenger is treated to 6.5 feet of personal space and a lay-flat bed, custom mood lighting, global Wi-Fi, Bose headphones, iPads and Bulgari amenity kits.

And unlike flying on the aircraft’s commercial predecessor, passengers need not suffer through drab airplane food—there is (of course) an executive chef whipping up culinary delicacies like Kobe beef steak bites, caviar and cucumber canapés, sushi rolls, petit fours and more.

You won’t go thirsty either, thanks to a vast wine and spirits selection that includes Tuscan Sangiovese reds and French Rosé that happens to come from Brad and Angelina’s Provençal estate.

TCS World Travel, a company that specializes in private jet expeditions, has several journeys planned for 2016; the first of which is an “Around the World” trip to destinations like Easter Island, Peru and Angkor Wat, Cambodia. The travel company has also partnered with the Four Seasons for a series of getaways that include accommodations at—you guessed it—Four Seasons properties around the globe. Each trip averages around 24 days, and prices start at $117,000 per person (based on double occupancy).

Or, if you’d rather create your own dream itinerary, there’s always the option of chartering the plane yourself. We’re confident that the task of finding 51 friends to join you shouldn’t be too difficult.
