Oprah Getting 'Typically-Equipped' $42M Jet

Oprah Winfrey is about to receive the custom-built, $42 million executive jet she ordered from Bombardier Aerospace, a Canadian newspaper reported.

Oprah's new private jet: the Bombardier Global Express XRSThe talk-show host's production company, Harpo, is paying for the Global Express XRS jet, which will have seating for about 10 passengers, the Montreal newspaper La Presse reported.

A spokesman for Bombardier told the French-language daily that Winfrey's plane would be "typically equipped" for a jet with such a price tag. The plane will have leather interior and designer fixtures for the bathroom and galley, among other high-end trimmings.

Bombardier's line of executive jets have proved popular with the rich and famous. Director Steven Spielberg, computer mogul Bill Gates and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte all reportedly have models of the Global Express jet.

Way to go Oprah! Business does not travel at 55mph! The BR-710 engines are the most fuel efficent and greenest engines in the sky as well. Don't be phased by ignorance, this is a great ride. Corporate aviation can not be compared to airline travel. You do not have the safety, security or flexibility on any airline that business jets provide.
