Boeing’s ultra-modern BBJ 777X private jet aims to offer fliers exceptional luxury and unprecedented long-haul journeys. And the two variants of the private planes, BBJ 777-8 and BBJ 777-9 are said to fly over half-way around the world. In the context of BBJ 777-8, the charter business jet reportedly has a range of 11,645 nautical miles (21,570 km) and can connect virtually any two cities in the world.

The new 777X jets have stylish interior design and spacious spaces that enhance the luxury on the long-haul travel. The interior concepts for the jet include elaborate ceiling crown moulding, marbelised tabletops, and more. And the BBJ-7778 (list price $442.8 million) is said to have a cabin space of around 3,256 square feet (302.5 sqm), which is ideal as a five-star space for VIP fliers. The interiors are inclusive of bedroom suites having their own cinema areas, hammam, and futuristic shower pads. Greg Laxton, head of Boeing Business Jets shared that their exclusive customers wished to travel with the best space and comfort and also fly directly to their destination. He added that the new BBJ 777X would redefine ultra-long range VIP travel.

It is reported that the Boeing 777-8 can accommodate around 365 passengers. It is featured with a 71.75m (235 ft 5 in) wingspan and is 69.79m (229 ft 0in) in length, and 19.49m (63 ft 11 in) in height. The jet is also reported to have the highest reliability in its class. Matt Woollaston, Vice President of completions sales at Jet Aviation Basel stated that they had incorporated forward-thinking concepts like intelligent, digital LED lighting throughout the cabin, and OLED and smart glass technology on all the window panels. He added that the features would allow the windows to be dimmed and virtual curtains would be displayed.

The Boeing Business Jets had around 261 orders in its history, however, the aircraft it makes is said to be of the highest standards of design and quality.
