The BBJ 777-9 provides an even larger cabin measuring 3,689 sq. ft. (342.7 sqm), while still offering a range of 11,000 nautical miles (20,370 km).

To put that into perspective, Qatar Airways flight between Doha and Auckland, New Zealand takes about 17 hours and 30 minutes, over a distance of 14,539 km. Singapore Airlines operates the world's longest commercial route between between Changi and Newark Liberty Int. Airport in New York, a flight that covers some 15,323 km and takes around 19 hours.

"Our most exclusive customers want to travel with the best space and comfort and fly directly to their destination. The new BBJ 777X will be able to do this like no other airplane before it, redefining ultra-long range VIP travel," said Greg Laxton, Head of Boeing Business Jets.

To demonstrate the versatility of the airplane's spacious cabin, BBJ unveiled interior concepts from three leading design firms: Greenpoint Technologies, Jet Aviation (pictured), and Unique Aircraft Design. Each concept shows how the BBJ 777X can be transformed to suit the tastes of any VIP customer.
