EBAN reader and operator of an original BBJ, Faisal Haddadin, md of Dallah Albarakah in Jordan, reports that he is very satisfied with the maintenance support, dispatch reliability, operating capability and value of the aircraft. Its best aspects are the range, baggage space and reliability. "We love our BBJ," he says.

Royal Jet's vp technical Ahmed Al Mammari says that the BBJ has good a dispatch reliability standard and high operational capabilities in comparison to similar size aircraft.

He adds: "The BBJ main strength's include the aircraft cabin size, the take off weight and reliability. There is good industry support for the aircraft's basic systems similar to that available for airliner aircraft in spheres including spare parts, maintenance facilities and authorised vendors and authorised service centres."

This is in line with our five-year plan to have more than 20 aircraft by 2012."
