Yep, it's Friday and time for a little fantasy travel...this one's so very, very exceptional...
Remember when we dreamt about that little Four Seasons private jet trip last year? The September 2013 journey might already be sold out, but two new itineraries have just been announced for next year. In addition to a slightly different selection of destinations for the round-the-world version, Four Seasons is adding a “Rediscover the Americas” option for spring.
The basics remain the same: private jet travel, dedicated staff along the way, and of course Four Seasons hotels in every location. The size of the group has decreased to 56 passengers however, and while inflight you’ll be able to Instagram and Vine away, courtesy of on-board internet.

Feeling blue because you weren't one of the lucky winners of Sofitel's round-the-world dream trip? Four Seasons could have the perfect answer if you have a bit of spare cash lying around. Like $71,000 of spare cash. That amount gets you a space on an Around-The-World Tour By Private Jet. Yes, we're dreaming again, but it's Friday, so why not?
Knowing Four Seasons, this isn't your average trip: you'll be taking a 22-day voyage by private plane with a maximum of 76 guests. There's expedition staff to accompany you, including a dedicated physician (!), private chef, expert lecturers, and a Four Seasons concierge.
Apparently the folks at the Wynn Las Vegas had some unused jets lying around the tarmac - the recession's been rough on everyone that way - and decided to try to do something with them. For the next two months they'll be flying travelers between Los Angeles and Vegas as part of a broader vacation package:
The package begins at $780 per person for double occupancy and $1,193 for single occupancy. The price includes roundtrip airfare on a 50-person jet from Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport or John Wayne Airport in Orange County and a three-night stay in a standard room at Encore or Wynn. On board the private jet, a Wynn concierge will have room keys on hand so guests can skip the hotel check-in process, as well as champagne before take off. Upon arrival at McCarran International Airport’s executive terminal, limousine service will take guests to the resort.
This is presumably targeted at the same kind of Vegas bachelor parties where people book single-night table service at a club because they're rolling high class, which isn't the worst market to target. It might also be nice for important anniversaries. And though we're not really sure why a 50-passenger jet counts as "private" when the USAir shuttle from Burbank to Vegas has less seats, the limos are a nice touch.
