On a typical week, Argentinian soccer player Lionel Messi makes $630,000, so it’s not so surprising that he’s been renting a $15 million decked-out Gulfstream V jet. Talk about #goals.
The jet reportedly has two bathrooms and 16 seats that can be folded down to make eight beds. The interior is simple yet completely luxe. Neutral tones, medium glossy wood, gold accents and large round windows make for a timeless design.
But the plane also has a few aspects that were uniquely added for Messi himself. On the tail, the plane sports Messi’s jersey number, 10. Let’s face it: It would seem wrong if it didn’t.
Messi’s G5 also has a sweet addition for those who presumably fly with him most often — his family. On the steps that lead into the plane read the names of his wife, Antonela, and three children, Thiago, Ciro and Mateo. Of course, Messi didn’t leave himself out.
According to FlightAware, the plane’s last flight was a short hop from Madrid (MAD) to Barcelona (BCN) this past Monday.
While it’s been reported that Messi is only renting the plane, it’s surprising that he hasn’t decided to buy it outright. Not only has he made some personalized additions to the plane, but he also can definitely afford it.
Alas, maybe he’s still unsure about going all-in on one of the most rapped-about aircrafts out there. Meanwhile, celebrities from Paris Hilton to Brad Pitt have been spotted flying with commercial airlines — some even in economy!
