Boeing BBJ Reveals Interior Concepts For 787 VIP

Thu Feb 01, 2007 3:27 am

BBJ today unveiled concepts of luxury and comfort for the 787 VIP airplane. Concept renderings of custom interior designs for the advanced-technology widebody VIP jet were displayed at the Middle East Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition in Dubai.

"A Boeing 787 VIP affords its owner complete accommodation," said Steven Hill, president of Boeing Business Jets. "The spacious cabin and the technology of the 787 enable an owner to design a beautiful environment that exactly meets preferences and needs. Whether you are looking for a flying palace or a business office in the sky -- or both, the possibilities are endless."

What a welter of discussion would be unleashed if the owners of those seven VIP 787s were revealed.  scratchchin

I love that huge light over the table with the globe, of course every time I hit turbulence I would be giving it the eyeball.  duck 
It's not a near miss it's a near hit!!

Not enough shiny gold and marble -- I prefer "Gasputin's" IL-96.  Wink

Just kidding -- I *love* these, especially the "Orient Express" vibe in the private state room, with the hardwood floor and the Persian rug. I sure hope that potted plant with the palm tree is bolted down, though...  Smile

Very classy interior.

For some reason I had two images in my head when I looked at those designs.
1) Myst
2) Star Trek NG
Yes...I am not a KIX fan. Let's Japanese Aviation!

They look pretty good, not sure who Boeing got to do the design?

Here is a link to the Jet Aviation/ Eidsgaard concept (don't know if these have been posted before)

Peder Eidsgaard worked on the interior of Roman Abramovich's private 763 so he has some experience with this size of plane.
