Wondering why you didn’t see the Liverpool squad at the gate for your Ryanair flight to Madrid this weekend? Well, they were flown to Madrid and back in style on their own, personalised long-haul Boeing 767-300ER jet.
And, there was an extra special passenger on the return flight in the form of the Champions League trophy itself.
The plain white aircraft, owned by private jet charter company Aeronexus, is the same aircraft type that you would usually see making long-haul flights of up to around 6,000 miles. This time, it was only making the short 888-mile hop to the Spanish capital of Madrid.
The two-hour journey will have been one of comfort for the Reds. The 2-2-2 configuration that the Aeronexus operates is featured heavily in TPG‘s worst business class cabins in the sky for reasons such having no direct aisle access and needing to climb over the stranger sitting next to you.
With 96 seats, the lads probably wouldn’t have had that issue and even had enough space to do some stretching. Each seat has the ability to recline into a fully-flat bed — a standard feature of most modern business class cabins.
The aircraft even has a private area in the middle of the cabin complete with a single bed.
Aeronexus offers its customers the full business-class experience akin to many of the most popular business class cabins in the air today. But at least on the outbound flight, wine probably wasn’t on the menu.
