First, congrats to Bombardier. They have a cabin product well liked in the industry.

Add to that the new challenger jets, and Bombardier is on its way to own the business jet market overall.
And yet Bombardier must look over their shoulder at Embraer who is the fastest growing business jet provider (albeit, a far smaller provider).

.The Global family is certainly closing the gap, but as far as mojo goes, Gulfstream still leads ( by a bit)
Gulfstream has the name. I had two friends who asked me to help their boss select business jets. There was so much 'Gulfstream mojo' that there really wasn't a 2nd choice. I gave my advice and saw the expected results. One kept his 757 and the other is 'looking into' a Gulfstream without really considering any alternatives...
But I live in Los Angeles where TPAC and to Europe range drive long range business jet sales. Once the Global 7000/8000 are out and executives brag about their jet, there will be a shift in the market.
But *the* local bragging rights route will still be out of range for all the competitors: VNY
Which I expect owners to fly once and then go on to more sensible route planning.
|Quoting NBGSkyGod (Reply 5):|
Both aircraft usually operate exactly as their customers (the owners not the pilots) want them to. As long as they are happy, the rest of the stuff (pilot complaints) fall to a close second as far as Gulfstream and BBD are concerned.
And much of their preference is that... preference. I could try to add to the debate, but its not like I'm putting down the tens of millions required to play this game...
