I find these business jet mock-ups entertaining but also a little insulting. I know that anything is possible if you throw enough money around but will we ever see anything like this in the air?

Someone should put together a website for all of the empty airline mock-ups that have come out of various airline marketing departments. God knows there'd be enough material.

I know.

I'm being sarcastic in referring to the unrealistic promises made by airlines over the years. I think the 747 mock-ups that included a swimming pool?? We've seen everything from swimming pools to three-ring circuses offered since.

Many options are offered for the 787 as there are for the a380

Well, if this guy was shown that 788i concept to entice him to buy, only to be told later that he couldn't have it even if he wanted it, I bet he wouldn't be very pleased.....

I think many here would like to see the interiors he has commissioned for his custom 788.

Anyway, private billionaire fantasies stand better chances of turning into reality than airline gimmicks.

Actually that picture isn't ridiculous at alll. If some tycoon wants everyone to see what latest car they have accquired, or can't bared to be without it, then its perfect. Your just looking into the cargo hold, and yes they can fit most cars down there.


What is it? It's A 747-400, but that's not important right now.

It is also good for checking whether someone stole the car during the flight.  Wink

Maybe all aircraft should have glass floors so we can watch our bags get (miss?) handled or forgotten?

It's not for an airline but for a private customer. The glass (plexi/safety) floor for the garage "ceiling" is not impossible, actually wouldn't cost much to do based on the 787 structure. It's part of the reason it's done in mock-up, to show the flexibility that the plastic jet provides for modifiers.

And yes, people with these types of VIP jets DO put their cars downstairs.

So I really don't understand your rant. Are you jealous of wasteful rich people?

I thought someone already did the pool thing. The water is held in a tank and then pumped in to the pool after they are at a certain altitude. If the aircraft turns suddenly the sides all have dump systems. I'm not sure I could feel comfortable swimming in an a/c.

They should include that floor with the airline versions. It might help some of the baggage problems if those guys new they were being watched! I can already hear the passengers:

What a waste. Think of how many gallons of fuel it takes to haul all those gallons of water for one person or a handful of people to go swimming in the middle of the sky.

The size of your swimming pool in liters will be limited to the Maximum structural payload:

So here is the size:
767-300ER 43799 liters
787-800 45359
777-200LR 63956

All numbers from Boeing site.

Absolutely and unashamedly.

If you have an open pool, you basically have to show that spilling like 20m³ of water cause no harm to the aircraft's systems. Something that is highly unlikely imho.

It wouldn't really be too hard to do with any of the current crop of commercial aircraft made from aluminium alloy either. The floor boards in aircraft such as the 747 do not carry any structural loads whatsoever (besides the weight of a person), so there would be no reason why the floorboards could not be replaced with a piece of polycarbonate for example.
