Wow, the folks at Bombardier are celebrating that one.

Is this a byproduct of Gulfstream having a backlog or the Global really being a superior family of aircraft?

Netjets switches from Gulfstream to Global Express for its long-haul needs.

I hear the 30 Global Express 5000s will replace the the older G-IVs.

As for the 20 Global Express 7000/8000s, maybe Netjets didn't get the price they wanted from Gulfstream, but its not due to Globals "being a superior product" I'll tell you that much

Netjets also looked at the 7X

Netjets filed to start Netjets China. Where those 20 larger Global Express 7000s are going to go? who knows...

I would say it's more like NetJet realized it's time to move the long range fleet into the next ere...bigger cabins, and the wait for the Gulfstream 650 would be very a long one. Guys who ordered a G650 when it was first announced years ago are having to wait until 2013 for delivery.

The Global family has a much wider cabin than Gulfstream IV/V variants and NetJet begins taking delivery in late 2012. What's not to like?

Bombardier has struggled for a decade to improve its reputation of an unreliable Global fleet and unresponsive support. They have done a good job of that and this order illustrates that they can compete with Gulfstream in those areas. Gulfstream is always near the top in customer satisfaction.

We have operated a new Global 5000 for 1.5 years with 100% dispatch reliability....knock wood.

Well i know it came down to Gulfstreams, Globals and the Falcon 7X... There were a lot of factors involved in the decision, at the end the biggest one was money I'm sure...

I heard Sokol (Netjets CEO) wanted to stick with Gulfstream for the ultra-long range stuff, but who knows what kind of package Bombardier offered him.

Not attacking the Global Express in any way, shape, or form. Its like trying to choose between a Ferrari and a Bently

Try dealing with claims with them, you would be surprised.

Man, I hope this doesn't mean I'll have to wait to get my hands on a new Global 5000. I was just about to go find a cash machine until I read this story.

I'm a little surprised that they didn't wait for EBACE to announce the order, my bet is it would have blown everything else out of the water. Netjets switching vendors is less of a surprise for me than the size of the order. It always comes down to the deal, but I haven't seen anything to suggest a return of demand for large cabin capacity. With many claiming the fractional model needs a revamping and that jet cards are the future, that's an awful lot of jet cards that will need to be sold. Maybe the bulk of the orders will go to the Asia project. In any event, it's good news for everyone involved at a time when we desperately need it. As far as Bombardier support goes, I fly a Challenger 605 and our tech rep has been extremely responsive and helpful.


My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

Gulfstream's product support is always at the top of the rankings each year. I encourage anyone with interest in the subject to acquire a copy of Professional Pilot magazine which has quite an extensive survey of all of the major manufacturers of airframes, engines, and avionics (plus FBO's). I can assure Gulfstream is the class of the field for product support. Of course there can always be an exception depending upon circumstances.

Yes sir. Agree 100%. Like I said, price, politics, many other factors contributed to Netjets going with Globals vs Gulfstreams

YES, this is a great news.

I'm quite happy that they are oriented to buy Global jets instead of Gulfstream.

NetJets has always been open about their business practice. They do not like to rely on a single manufacturer for too much. That is the reason they have Gulfstream, Cessna, Dassualt, Hawker and now Bombardier. I am sure some Learjets will make their way into the fleet.

Thats too bad, I was hoping for a large order of the new G250!

On a side note: These maybe some of the worst painted Globals on earth... NetJets needs to find a new scheme, it is like showing up in your $40 million dollar rental car (Screams rental)

Netjets took care of the short-haul market going with the Embraer Phenom 300s. They made it clear in which direction we're headed as far as the long-haul market, Globals over Gulfstreams.

The medium market is next. No idea what they're looking at. I hope the G250 as well.... The CL300 is a beautifull machine, but haven't heard them looking at it

Awesome, I love going through CMH because you can see all the different types sitting over at the hangar. Fingers crossed for the G250!
