    Here's an interesting document from Airbus.

    The following is the 2013 list price for Airbus Aircrafts -

    The cheapest at 70 million USD is the A318, and the most expensive A380 at a lil over 400 million dollars.

    Costs of fitting/furnishing/seats/interiors would be additional!


    2013 AVERAGE LIST PRICES (in Million USD)

    A318 - 70.1 (The smallest A320 family model)
    A319 - 83.6
    A320 - 91.5 (The largest selling model of the Airbus Family)
    A321 - 107.3 (The largest by size A320 family model)
    A319neo - 92.0
    A320neo - 100.2
    A321neo - 117.4
    A330-200 - 216.1 (The most popular Twin engined Aircraft from the Airbus Family)
    A330-200F - 219.1
    A330-300 - 239.4
    A350-800 - 254.3 (The most eagerly awaited aircraft)
    A350-900 - 287.7
    A350-1000 - 332.1
    A380-800 - 403.9 (The largest commercial liner by max passenger count in the world)

    Besides that Dreamliner ..

    You will need book a big ass Hanger at some airport to just park that damn thing .. license to purchase Jet fuel from the govt. A place to store that Jetfuel & equipment to pump it. Plane-puller-tractor thingy ..

    A Stair car to board the plane :p

    Trained Pilots .. Maintanence Crew.

    Here are some 2012 indicative pricing from Boeing's Website -

    Airplane Families 2012 $ in Millions Average
    737 Family
    737-700 74.8
    737-800 89.1
    737-900ER 94.6
    737 MAX 7 82.0
    737 MAX 8 100.5
    737 MAX 9 107.3
    747 Family
    747-8 351.4
    747-8 Freighter 352.0
    767 Family
    767-200ER 160.2
    767-300ER 182.8
    767-300 Freighter 185.4
    767-400ER 200.8
    777 Family
    777-200ER 258.8
    777-200LR 291.2
    777-300ER 315.0
    777 Freighter 295.7
    787 Family
    787-8 206.8
    787-9 243.6
    So depending on what you kit it out with, a 787 is around 210-250 million dollars. (Dreamliner)
    All of that can be outsourced to Maintenance organizations. Not every Airline has it's team in every station that it flies to. They outsource the work to a local Maintenance company. Though yeah, you could be looking at a few crores easily for running and just regular Maintenance.

    Much cheaper, though the benefit is that they fly much higher, and much faster than conventional commercial liners. So the need of Business men and CEOs is time bound as well. If you look up the interviews some private jet owners have given, it is more convenient for them to have a private jet available, rather than waiting for the next available flight.

    I wish we were able to buy harrier jets or F-35 lightening 2, then at least we won't need a runway and would be able to land and take off from virtually anywhere!

    Hehe, Sadly military aircrafts are not allowed. However tilt rotor concepts have been doing the rounds. The whole idea is cost effectiveness.

    Harrier Jets still need a runway to take off .. they can land using the Vertical thrust though.

    As JD666 mentioned Tilt Rotors are more apt at VTOL ..

    F-35 lightening 2 will do then! (specifically, F-35:cool:
    Great way to avoid traffic jams lol!

    Only problems are the $237M price tag, and that even US air force hasn't inducted it and is expected to do so by 2016!
    And I bet Lockheed Martin won't take private orders!
