I found this interesting, which 737 will they actually replace? Because i know that the BBJ flying for KLM to IAH is almost always full and that KLM was looking for expansion. Might it replace the 737?

The first step , before placing a 787 VIP order ?
Swiss business aviation services provider PrivatAir has ordered a Boeing 767 to exploit the growth in large-jet transport. The 56-seat aircraft, in first-class, flat-bed airline configuration, will replace PrivatAir's Boeing Business Jet and will complement its heavily used 49-seat VIP 757. The 767 will serve as an interim aircraft as the Geneva-based operator is poised to acquire a larger Airbus A350 or Boeing 787 for delivery early in the next decade.
signed a contract on July 6 to add a 56-seat 767-300ER to its VIP fleet by the second half of 2007, replacing a BBJ 1.
PrivatAir hopes to unveil another airline client for its all-business-class operations this summer. The Swiss company, which flies for Lufthansa, KLM and Swiss International Air Lines in addition to operating Airbus's corporate shuttle, said interest in its services is growing. "We are talking to several carriers, because the others [airlines] see that it is a success," CEO Greg Thomas told ATWOnline. PrivatAir's business plan for the next five years calls for the addition of 17 BBJs or ACJs.
