NYT Article On 787 BBJ And The Luxury Market

Wed Oct 18, 2006 12:33 am

This is about big, long-haul airliners that are converted to private jets and can carry not only pampered passengers and their entourages, but also, in some cases, their Rolls Royces and racehorses. These are specially equipped, privately owned jumbo jets — the kind that normally carry as many 300 to 400 passengers — but reconfigured with interiors designed for the enjoyment of, at most, a couple of dozen.

It also says that PrivatAir is getting a 767, from where it does not say

There are a few unidentified 767s on order on Boeing's website, perhaps it is one of those?

Air Force One is probably the trend setter for VIP jumbo jets. Flame me if I'm wrong!

The article mentions a VIP MD-11. Who owns that thing? Any pictures on Anet?
