Undisclosed customer orders two 787 Dreamliners
One customer, who wishes to remain anonymous, has just placed an order for two BBJ 787-9s. Boeing says the deal is worth US$564m.
Boeing now has 16 orders for the 787's BBJ variant.

A sole VIP customer is behind the purchase of two ultra-long range 787-9 Dreamliners, and Boeing says the August order has a list price value of $564 million. The VIP customer has requested to be unidentified.

The BBJ 787-9 is a business jet version of the 787-9 Dreamliner that can fly 9,485 nm while offering amenities such as large windows, a low cabin altitude, smooth ride technology, clean and high humidity air and a quiet cabin.

“The BBJ 787-9 offers our most discerning customers the ability to travel in ultimate comfort and fly directly to just about any city on earth,” says senior vice president of commercial sales and marketing Ihssane Mounir. “We're talking about London to Sydney or Tokyo to Cape Town. Our newest BBJ 787-9 customer can clearly see the possibilities and more. With a total of 16 orders to date, the BBJ 787 programme has won over other government and private customers who want to work, rest and arrive refresh and ready for a productive day.”

The BBJ 787-9 cabin offers 2,775 sq ft of space and provides a large canvas for a range of interior design options.
