Boeing is moving ahead with a BBJ 777-9. The Boeing Business Jet utilising the 777-9, part of the 777X family as a base, has already secured its first order, and as such, Lufthansa Technik has unveiled a cabin design too.
At this point, the company that ordered the plane remains undisclosed.
As for inside the BBJ 777-9 as it is to be known now, there is a host of space available for a penthouse in the skies with rich tones and textures, bringing a homely and cultural feel to the aircraft.
Not only does the aircraft feature bedrooms but also a living space, reception, office and much more on top of that. As a result, Boeing Business Jets are very much in their niche and can be utilised for multiple purposes, whether as VIP transport or something else in a similar realm.
Lufthansa Technik said that their intention was to create a cabin that was beautiful and functional; combining the two, they believed, would always be tricky but, if pulled off, would make the interior a pleasure to view. In addition, the company says that it also tailored the design to meet the unique requirements of VIP clients in the Middle East, potentially hinting at where this aircraft could be seen flying one day.
For Boeing, before the BBJ 777-9 begins flying, the whole focus will be on certifying the passenger series, which is currently slated for 2025, 5 years later than initially expected. Additionally, after the 777-9, the company has its second variant, the 777-8, closely followed by the launch of that respective variants freighter program which has already secured multiple orders.
