Boeing 777-Heaven

Inside 777-Heaven! Boeing's amazingly opulent £300million private airliner is a tycoon's palace in the sky - complete with five-star bedroom suites, gold furniture, cinema and even own Turkish baths

 

Boeing has released images of three design concepts that could be used inside its groundbreaking new 777X jets - which include master suites, stylish interior design and spacious living space to add luxury to long haul travel.

The BBJ 777X, a new Boeing Business Jet model that can fly more than half way around the world without stopping, was announced on December 10 and can fly farther than any business jet ever built.

Two versions of the new jets, BBJ 777-8 and BBJ 777-9, will be available and both come with a large cabin space ready to be transformed into a five-star space for VIP customers.

Renderings of the interiors show beautiful bedroom suites with their own hammam, cinema areas and futuristic shower pods in the middle of a marble floor.

Concepts for the cabins designs were made by Greenpoint Technologies, Jet Aviation, and Unique Aircraft Design.

Greg Laxton, head of Boeing Business Jets said: 'Our most exclusive customers want to travel with the best space and comfort and fly directly to their destination.

'The new BBJ 777X will be able to do this like no other airplane before it, redefining ultra-long range VIP travel,' he added while speaking at the bi-annual Middle East Business Aviation Association Show (MEBAA).

The BBJ 777-8 offers the longest range of 11,645 nautical miles (21,570 km) and a spacious 3,256 sq. ft. (302.5 sq m) cabin.

While the BBJ 777-9 provides an even larger cabin measuring 3,689 sq. ft. (342.7 sq m), while still offering ultra-long range of 11,000 nautical miles (20,370 km), and is expected to enter service in 2020.

The Jet Aviation Design Studio in Basel, Switzerland cabin concept for the 777X jets uses modern and classic features, and is called Shaheen (Royal White Falcon), reports Business Jet Interiors International.

It was designed to accommodate 43 passengers plus a crew of 11 and features lounges, a game and cinema area, an office, private work spaces, three guest bedrooms.

There's also a master suite with its own lounge, bedroom, dressing area, shower and hammam.

Matt Woollaston, vice president of completions sales at Jet Aviation Basel, said: 'We incorporated forward-thinking concepts such as intelligent, digital LED lighting throughout the cabin, as well as OLED and smart glass technology on all the window panels.

'This allows the windows to be dimmed and virtual curtains or window shades to be displayed.'

Boeing Business Jets has only 261 orders in its history, but the aircraft it makes are made to the highest standards of design and quality, reports Business Insider.  

Boeing's new Business Jet 777-8 will be designed to fly from Perth to pretty much anywhere in the world, with a huge range of 21,570km and the ability to carry up to 350 passengers. 

The airline Qantas is looking to buy the new Business Jet model for its Sunrise Project, Perth Now reported.

The Sunrise Project hopes to create an extreme long-haul flight which travels directly from Sydney to London, an unprecedented 20-hour journey halfway round the planet.

However the luxury interior can sometimes cost as much as the aircraft itself, Perth Now reported.

WHAT IS THE BOEING 777X?

It is set to be the biggest passenger plane ever seen - with a wingspan so big the tips have to be folded up so it can fit into airports.

The 777X series was launched in November 2013 with two variants, the 777-8X and the larger 777-9X.

The Boeing 777-9X will be the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world, the aerospace giant claims.

Around 320 have already been ordered, the firm says, and will feature a wider cabin and bigger windows than even the firm's 787 Dreamliner.

The plane will have the widest wingspan of any aircraft: 235 feet, five inches (71.8 metres), making it wider than four 53-foot (16-metre) semi-truck trailers parked end to end.

It is so big, Boeing has developed hinges on its wingtips. The hinges will fold up, allowing the plane to shorten its wingspan when it's rolling across airport taxiways, the first design of its kind on any commercial airliner.

The hinged wingtips will measure 12 feet, and locking pins will prevent them from folding during flight, Boeing told CNN.

Inside, the 777-9X will seat at least 400 passengers, 34 more than the 777-9X's competitor - the Airbus A350-1000.

The 777-9X cabin will be 16 inches (40 centimeters) wider than the A350-1000, Boeing says, allowing economy-class seat widths up to 18 inches (46 centimeters).

Typical airline seat widths range from 17 to 18.5 inches (43 to 47 centimeters).

The 777-9X's windows will also be 15% larger than competing airliners, Boeing says, and placed at a height that will be eye level for most passengers.

The factory for the plane, in Everett, is big enough to fit 25 football fields inside.

'Building on the success of the 777 and 787 Dreamliner, the 777X will be the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world, unmatched in every aspect of performance,' Boeing says.

'However, performance is just part of the story.

'The cabin interior of the 777X is inspired by the comforts and conveniences of the 787 Dreamliner and includes larger windows, a wider cabin, new lighting and enhanced architecture — all of which will be custom-tailored for a unique 777X experience.

'The 777X is the future of flight unfolding.

'That's a better way to fly.'
