Lufthansa Technik deserves accolades for going all out on the multi-million dollar aircraft, the Boeing 777-9, set for delivery in 2025. Meant for the billionaires of the world, this beauty is all thing luxe and lovely with an approach akin to Qantas’ new A350 First Class. The center of the aircraft is dedicated to six private sleeping booths with full-length beds. The rear is a motley of business and economy-like seats. At the heart of the 777, your heart starts racing, glimpsing the magnificence of a large meeting area with a dining table and leather armchairs.
The spacious lounge is enveloped by a glittering, golden bar, while a private office is perched at the front. A spacious master bedroom and ensuite follow it. “We are thrilled to unveil the first insights into this new VIP cabin design for the BBJ 777-9,” said Jan Grube, Sales Director in VIP & Special Mission Aircraft Services at Lufthansa Technik.
“Our team’s mission was to create a cabin that is both functional and beautiful while also meeting the unique needs of our VIP clients in the Middle East. We are confident that this cabin design will set a new standard for VIP aviation, and we look forward to bringing it to market.”
The 3,229 square feet of cabin space marries traditional elements of Middle Eastern culture with avant-garde elements, suggesting the private jet may, in fact, be built for the fleet of a Middle Eastern billionaire. One of these notable modern elements is a unique private bedroom that is expandable and highly functional in the VVIP section at the front.
The cabin also boasts a large majlis (a dead giveaway) with an intricate design that livens the entire cabin. Assuming the wealthy owner of the plane loves the feeling of being home, the $426 million airplane is outfitted with a special light and window shade concept to render the feeling of being at home when busy globetrotting and feeling homesick at 30,000 feet.
