Mockers will sound the alarm at Brussels International Airports on Sunday mornings with a particular arrival: a Deerjet Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner BBJ arriving from Asturias Oviedo International Airports with the call signal ANGOLA1. Recorded as 2-DEER, the plane can accommodate 40 guests in an exceptional environment. It is the first Boeing 787-8 specifically conceived as a BBJ and - as we know - the first flight of this plane to a Belgium aerodrome.
The Boeing 787-8 BBJ is exclusively owned and run by the China-based airline Deerjet and was not exactly cheap: The Boeing 787-8 basis has a listed cost of 224.6 million dollars, another 100 million dollars with the luxury enhancements.
