Jay Leno on John Travolta's Boeing Business Jet: 'So far above first class'

John Travolta took to the skies on Jay Leno’s Garage to show off his Boeing Business Jet. Boeing’s premiere private jet retails for $57 million when new, plus an additional $20 million to $25 million for the interior design and installation.

Travolta has had his pilot license for 45 years and a jet license for 20. He is such an avid flier that his house is attached to a runway, so he can literally park his jets in the driveway. Jay Leno was so impressed that he called Travolta a “hero.”

Travolta’s jet, which is based on the Boeing 737, has a fuel range of almost 6,000 miles. So if wife Kelly Preston wants pizza for date night, they can fly from Florida to Italy for a fresh slice.

The 737 is designed to carry approximately 150 passengers but Travolta’s jet has been customized to carry 15 people in extreme comfort. The plane features two bedrooms as well as a full-size bathroom and shower.

Jay Leno’s Garage airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on CNBC.
