Even if you’ve flown in economy class on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, you’ve probably been impressed with the cabin’s mood lighting, larger windows and fresher air.
But imagine what it would be like to have a private and customized Boeing 787?
How Much This Private Boeing 787 Costs
Traveller.com posted some photos of a private 787 jetliner that has a 17 hour range and costs a staggering $74,000 an hour to operate.
Here’s what the website said about the aircraft:
“The bespoke aircraft, part of the Boeing’s Business unit (BBJ), was transformed into a ‘penthouse’ by aviation consulting firm Kestrel Aviation and French aircraft interior designer Jacques Pierrejean.
The firms spent more than two years designing and creating the plane’s opulent interiors – the plane has been in flight since 2016 but was only unveiled to the public in May this year.”
The hourly cost of the plane means a flight from New York to London would cost almost a half a million dollars.
The plane is complete with marble bathrooms, dining rooms, entertainment systems, custom carpeting and a stand-up shower that’s probably more luxurious than your shower at home.
Keep in mind, a traditional 787 can seat over 200 people. It even has a king sized bed.
The Boeing Business Jet is the private jet arm of Boeing that caters to corporations and some of the world’s richest travelers. Boeing Business Jets don’t just feature customized 787s – the division also boasts custom 777s and 747-8s and the 737 MAX. According to Boeing, as of July 31, there are only four 787 Boeing Business Jets in service
