You already doomed this post from the get go... Instead of saying "THIS IS THE ULTIMATE BIZJET", Ask what everyone else's choice is, or say, "I Think this is the ultimiate Bizjet, Whats your choice"... Whats there to discuss about your opinion?

Just helping out.  Big grin

This particular -SP is operated by Qatar Amiri Flight (Royal Flight) and owned by the Emir of Qatar himself.

This said, I would say the Sultan's of Brunei B744 (V8-ALI) is the ultimate bizzjet. As far as I know, it is the only B744 being privately owned, so far.

For the record, the Emir of Dubai and the Sultan of Oman will both get their own B744 very soon.

Gross, that thing is too small, for a 747!

The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

I like that 777....
Flown to 120 Airports in 44 Countries on 73 Operators. Visited 55 Countries and counting. Wanderlust is like Syphilis, once you have the itch it's too late for treatment.

The Amiri flight of Qatar uses A340, A310, A319CJ. The 747SP was used as a back up plane and also to transport Ministers.

Wow! I am impressed. The B747SP as a backup! ...it's like saying if my car breaks down, there's the public transport as a back up. Geez! Some people are really wealthy... Good Luck to them.
