Luxury Aircrafts: As the saying goes, "You can't take it with you." However, with the newly formed partnership of Lufthansa Technik and Andrew Winch Designs, you probably will at least be able to fly it luxuriously from one destination to another in the not-too-distant future. VIP mega-jets will soon be taxing down the runways, as Lufthansa Technik announced a partnership with Andrew Winch Designs with that specific purpose in mind. The plan was recently unveiled at this year's National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention in Orlando, Florida.

The merged dynamic duo is going to redesign a Boeing 787, which normally can seat over 300 passengers, to luxuriously accommodate 30 to 50 passengers. There will be 32 seating compartments. Nine of the compartments will contain double lie-flat beds, while the remaining 23 will be single lie-flat beds. So, additional space for carry-on luggage should not be an issue.



A forward lounge area, a movie theater, and a dining/conference area are on the drawing board along with a VIP master bedroom and two additional guest bedrooms. Plush furnishings will be set up throughout the customized 787 to enhance ambience and to offer privacy. Great interest is anticipated from both business and private sectors.

Lufthansa Technik, which is a subsidiary of Lufthansa Airlines, transforms large commercial airlines into luxury-latent VIP aircrafts. Per a report recently published in the New York Times, a manager of Lufthansa Technik stated there are many Boeing 747s, 757s, and 767s that have been customized to date.

A recent press release of Lufthansa Technik indicates that the first Boeing 787 VIP model is expected to be available for a walk-through at next year's European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland. The yearly event is jointly organized with the NBAA.
