The world's wealthiest millionaires and billionaires are now leaning toward new trends in spending their money. They are looking on buying jumbo jets to be outfitted as their mobile mansions. Some of the richest magnates are signing up on large aircraft makers such as Boeing and Airbus to turn the craft into a more exclusive conveyance, such as some sort of a flying house.

Implications - These jumbo-jet mansions from Dreamliner cost around $150 million US, and that doesn't even include the cost of jazzing up the interior. People who want to go even bigger and buy an Airbus will have to shell out even more cash, costing up to $300 million US. The huge planes can fit up to 853 passengers on the two decks.
