Inside $80 million customized Boeing business jet

 Boeing's customised 737 
If you have a spare $80million lying around you might be in the market for a new Boeing jet unveiled this week in Shanghai, China.
Boeing flaunted its high-tech customised 737 at the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition.
Earlier this month, the aviation giant delivered this modified 737, similar to the one on show in China, to a private businessman in the United States - and it is the customer's second private Boeing jet.



The 737 retails for a mere $57million. But interior remodeling, done by an independent company and ranging between $20 and $25 million typically push total costs for the Boeing 737 to around $80million.
The plane can carry up to 19 passengers and flies 5,600 nautical miles at Mach 0.80, or roughly 12 hours of nonstop flight, before it needs refueling.
A conference room features connectivity for smartphones and computers, and a high-definition video system boasts surround-sound audio.
