Wide-Flying Moguls: Google Duo’s New Jet Is a Boeing 767-200

I”m 32. Where’s my plane?

Aviation-industry experts estimate that the airplane, because of its age and history, cost under $15 million, and maybe less. That’s roughly one-third the price of a new Gulfstream 550 business jet. In addition, the 767 can carry more passengers and can include sleeping accommodations. The Google co-founders wanted to fit more than 50 people but were limited by federal aviation rules, Mr. Page says. Filled to capacity, it’s potentially cheaper to run, per person than a Gulfstream.

Mr. Page says he and Mr. Brin bought the plane themselves and will use it for personal travel. He says there’s no plan for Google to reimburse the duo for its costs. A Google spokesman says the plane has no formal connection with the company.
