The French-made Dassault Falcon 2000 is a large cabin jet known for its wide cabin, although the base model range is better suited for transcontinental flights than across the ocean.

A new Dassault Aviation Falcon 2000 is listed at $38 million
The Falcon 2000 is the precursor of the Falcon 2000DX (2008 to 2010), Falcon EX (2003 to 2004), Falcon 2000EX EASy (2004 to 2009), Falcon 2000LX (2007 to 2012), and the Falcon 2000LXS (2013 to current).
The Falcon 2000 cabin is 6.2 feet high with a width of 7.7 feet and a length of 31.2 feet. There is a lavatory in the rear, and typical seating is for 10 passengers.
Range varies by model with the Falcon 2000LX at around 4,000 nautical miles (7,410 kilometers), Falcon 2000EX at 4,500 nautical miles (8,330 kilometers), Falcon 2000Sat 3,350 nautical miles (6,204 kilometers), and Falcon 2000DX at 4,000 nautical miles (7,410 kilometers).
The price for a new Falcon 2000 LXS is $38 million, and used Falcon 2000s start at around $2.5 million.
Since the 2000’s introduction in 1996, Dassault has debuted several variants that built on its winning DNA. In 2004, the manufacturer unveiled the EX, which featured enhanced avionics and a better cabin pressurization system. The DX followed in 2007 with the updated EASy digital cockpit. The 2000LX came in 2009, with standard winglets, and pushed the model past the $30 million price point while delivering 4,000 nautical miles of range, giving it plenty of margin for transatlantic crossings.

The interior cabin dimensions of a completed 2000LX are precisely the same as those of the original 2000, offering a comfortable fit for as many as eight passengers and a slightly tighter cabin for 10. Dassault believes the 2000LX shines because it does more with less, as in offering more overall range on less fuel than a 2000EX, thanks to Aviation Partners winglets that add about 3.5 feet of wingspan to each side and clearly define the LX to Falcon aficionados.
In 2013, Dassault also began production on the Falcon 2000LXS, which essentially combines the best features of the 2000LX and 2000S. The LXS comes equipped with the EASy II flight deck found on both the LX and S, the 4,145-nautical-mile range found on the LX, and the impressive runway capabilities of the S model.
