The 747-8BBJ has several lounges spread over two floors and a bedroom suite, 10 bathrooms, giant dining room and a doctor's surgery capable of minor surgery!
She can hold 76 passengers and 18 crew and has been flown for 403.2 hours.
Estimates are it could be sold for as much as £500,000,000!
Yes it does take a proper widebody to make a proper BBJ, doesn't it? I think most of the chaps in the region have at least one new 747 now. There was one as I recall that had a decent dismount: a glass cylinder containing a private elevator descended behind the nosewheel area. It lined up perfectly with the waiting Rolls or whatever.
CP, ain't that grand .... not that fussed on all that purple , but Im sure I could adjust
They really are a work of art (747-8) ...and those beautiful engines But 500,000,000 ..... would go along way helping those poor people in Yemen ...almost next door. Isn't the middle east is a place of extreme contrast, in a lot of areas.
