It must be seen to be believed: Luxury website Luxuo has the floor plans for a custom-designed A380 plane, complete with private bedrooms and a concert hall for 10. (We hear top talent will be booked to entertain for each flight.)

The plane has reportedly been ordered for an unidentified "Middle Eastern prince" to the tune of $482 million. Worcestershire-based firm Design Q is overseeing the project, which should be ready in three years and will hold the title of the world’s largest private jet.

Design Q’s co-founder Gary Doy told the website that the belly of the A380 has been turned into a relaxation zone, including a Turkish bath lined with super-thin marble to keep the weight down.

Other perks include an onboard garage; an elevator to zip guests between the three floors; five suites with king-size beds, high-tech entertainment systems and prayer room with computer controlled mats that always face Mecca.

There is also a boardroom for mid-air business meetings and 20 "sleeper" seats—which we hear are the equivalent of First Class seats—for extra guests.

What we want to know is: What kind of frequent flier points do guests get?
