I saw it briefly driving by in that monsoon yesterday...looked real nice. I wish I had been able to stop and get a good look at it...beautiful plane for sure.

I saw the same plane on 29 May at about 2200 local time in
MIA. It was just pushing back from one of the high E gates.
It is a lovely bird. I'd love to see the inside.

Does anybody know if this belongs to one individual (or family)? Or is this owned by a business and then chartered/rented out (I wonder what the hourly cost on that baby would be???) ?

flightaware shows it going to Newark, then Gander, then Hamburg.
i would think all those stops are necessary for one reason or another, because i'm sure this 777 could make it to EDDH nonstop from MCO.

I know the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia used to fly B767, B757, and about 4 years ago had purchased a B777 to add to their fleet. The first 2 had U.S. registrations and the B777 was supposed to but I don't recall what it was. Mid East Jet though sounds as if it might fit!
