Google Founders Buy a 767 Jumbo Jet

This from The founders are swimming in cash, having recently become billionaires after Google's huge IPO (together they're worth about $20 billion). The 767, purchased from the Australian airline Quantas, normally seats 180 people. But the founders plan to transform the airplane into something like a swinging, Austin Powers style "jumbo jet" that seats only 50. The rest of the space will be taken by cool amenities like a "sitting area, two staterooms with adjoining lavatories and a shower. At the rear will be 12 to 16 first-class seats for guests or employees and a large galley."
