How Smart Cabin Design in the Gulfstream G650ER Makes a 14-Hour Flight Seem a Delight
There are now several business jets offering true intercontinental range in excess of six thousand nautical miles. Currently the longest-range jet is Gulfstream’s G650ER, which can fly just over 7,500 nautical miles.

You could fly nonstop from Hong Kong to New York or from Los Angeles to Melbourne in Australia. That’s great, but it means you’re going to be in the aircraft for just over fourteen hours, so it had better be comfortable.

That’s where cabin designers come in. They can transform aircraft interiors to maximize the use of space, and this can involve breaking up the cabin space into different zones to suit the various needs and preferences of VIP travelers, such as this 4-zone configuration.
