Everything You Need To Know To Charter The Crystal Skye Boeing 777-200LR

The jumbo jet has 88 luxury first class seats that convert to flat beds and a large restaurant, lounge and bar area for socializing

 

The word unique is often overused and misused, and perhaps one of you will correct me, but Crystal’s new Boeing 777-200LR Crystal Skye strikes me as unique in a couple ways.

 

It has first class style seats with rows spread 73.5 inches apart in a 2x2x2 configuration (see seating plan below), and while it has very high-end luxury finishes, you can find other aircraft for charter with similar seating dimensions, albeit in narrow body 757s. At the same time, there are a number of widebody jets on the charter market, so while a 777 is comparatively larger than the 787s and 767s out there, it’s not unique just from that angle.
