It’s not due to go into service until 2025, but the cabin tour showed just how luxurious it’ll be. With a shower onboard and a 6 feet 8 inches tall cabin, it’s nicknamed “the penthouse of the skies.”
Dassault brought a model of its upcoming Falcon 10X private jet to the Paris Air Show. Here’s what the $75 million Dassault Falcon 10X will look like when it does take to the skies.
As an ultra-long-range jet which can travel 7,500 miles with a top speed of Mach .925 (around 710 miles-per-hour), it is competing with the likes of the Bombardier Global 7500 and Gulfstream G700. But the Falcon 10X’s cabin is its greatest asset — at 6 feet 8 inches tall, it has an extra 5 inches on the G700.
Starting in the rear, the bathroom is bigger than in some apartments.
It even includes a shower — a rarity only found on the most lavish private jets. It’s a big shower too, with a space to sit down and check out the view.
The marble floor adds to the luxury, with a toilet that would look more at home in a hotel than a plane.
Moving into the bedroom, the 9 feet 1 inch wide cabin leaves plenty of room.
The cosy-looking bed would be a necessity for ultra-rich clients on long-haul flights – and looks even more comfortable than business class.
Dassault kitted out this cabin with a television at the foot of the bed too — but there’s a bigger screen coming up as well.
The next section was dedicated to watching TV.
