Actually a lot of planes for a "quiet" week in the quiet month of August.

3 new 787's without a peep in the news, interesting.

Thanks for the update.

Why do people keep calling it "787BBJ"

Isn't the correct name 787VIP?

What does Boeing call it?



That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

I just talked to the director of 787 communications, and that is the official name.

Duly noted and thank you for using your contacts for the confirmation of the designation. Unlike the launch of the original BBJ Boeing have remained quiet on this model. It would be interesting to know what their market forecast is for sales over the life of the program.

The more so if the information on Monarch is correct and another 6 787s are announced today. In addition some 737NG leasing contracts have been announced for another 9 frames. No doubt Airbus are working with their customers too, just a shame they only update monthly.

Hi, mate. Boeing might not have given it as much funfare, but it was covered enough.

With three already confirmed a long way before rollout, it seems the 739 VIP is off to a good start and proving popular on the airliner-size business jet front. But nobody seems interested in figuring out who the owners are (ditto for the UFO Elite) based on the thread I started.

Thank you sir.

The problem is that most people who buy these like to remain anonymous for some quite understandable reasons. As you pointed out in your thread PrivatAir, having expressed a public interest, could well be one of the customers given the first 2 787 VIP were signed for on the same day. If any are for an individual then I'd have to say that Middle Eastern Royal flights would be prime contenders or people such as Paul Allen or Roman Abramovich to replace current Boeings.

As for the A318 Elites I guess it's the same and we'll have to wait until delivery to really find out.

I think it's widely understood that the 777s are for QR. There seems to be no doubt there. But this order has been on/off before and we can only assume that Airbus are muddying the waters behind the scenes. I think it would be surprising if it didn't eventually go ahead but it's one of those that shouldn't be counted before the ink is dry.

But they would not need a 787 VIP, just a 787. The reason they fly BBJ and ACJ is not because they are "business jets" but because they are small planes with widebody range. They are outfit in business class configurations that could just as easily be put on a standard 737 or 319.



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

What is the configuration of their 757? Pax or VIP? Anyway, companies move into new markets. Just becuase their BBJs and ACJs are flown on scheduled routes doesn't mean that they won't move further into VIP services. Their history prior to doing routes for LH and LX has been in executive travel.

Indeed. IIRC, one of their biggest jobs before doing commercial flights for LH, LX and KL was flying the Rolling Stones around on their "40 Licks" tour, using their 757. For flying like that, a 789VIP would be ideal, especially if the tour covers pretty much the whole globe and at some times longhaul flying is required, e.g. finishing the tour in Australia and then heading back home to the US or UK, just as an example.
