Civilian Boeing 787 Dreamliners can usually transport between 240 and 335 people - but the use of this type is slightly different. Featuring the tongue-in-cheek "2-DEER" numbering, the plane was cored and completely refurbished to incorporate market-leading technology innovation such as remote-controlled venetian shutters and furnishings, dimmed lights and an extra-large showers.
At the beginning of the last week the aeronautical journalist Sam Chui was allowed to take a private flight through the Dubai Air Show. When Chui was on the ground floor of the airplane, he was welcomed by the flight attendants of the jets, who were hand-picked by the already elitist employees of the Hainan Airlines Group (HNA) family. aboard the airplane, Chui asked for a place to exchange his boots for a set of fleecy clogs.
Then Chui made a trip by the private jets - called "flying penthouse" - under the direction of the on board team. Passangers board the aircraft in a "lobby" leading to a murky, wood-clad passage. There are also two large dinner desks in the master suite, which can be set for early dinner beverages, afternoons or a complete celebration prepared by the private cook on board.
Separated from the front of the aircraft from the front area of the aircraft, you will find a fully fenced, fully private main room with a super-king twin berth. There is even a separate brick covered main room with a large bathroom with showers and twin sinks. The rear part of the aircraft has 18 VIP seating units with its own equipment (and ample legroom) for extra people.
Whilst this unique plane can usually only be seen by the extremely wealthy élite, Chuis led tours can be seen here:
