Hehe, of course it is the Presidential one of course (glad its brakes are working again!). The ones that do have rubbish interiors were purposely made that way by the customer...

Does anyone else think it looks a little cramp in that conference room. The legroom for those white leather chairs don't look too good either. How do they recline being up against the bulkheads like that?

One other thing, what is the function of that toilet looking thing next to the actual toilet? Plus I don't see toilet paper or three sea shells, whats the deal?  Big grin

Ive yet to see any private jet of this size that does have a tasteful interior! The Brunei 744 is even worse.

Why would you need a bidet on a plane??

The interior is tacky and wonderfully stuck in the 1980s with the beige, turquoise, mauve, and brass theme going on there.

The overhead bins in a normally outfitted IL96 are more antiquated in design than those on a DC-10 for instance. Things like that simply need to be improved.

The problem is, if no one buys your airplanes, there is no money for upgrades.

It's odd for their to be a bidet as I have never seen one in Russia and as far as I know there is no culture of their use; hell, something like 30% of Russians don't have indoor plumbing (using an outhouse in Umba at -25C is not fun, let me tell you!)...
