While large-cabin jets are spacious to begin with, the Gulfstream G650/650ER have the most passenger cabin space followed by the Global Express

 

Large cabin jets vary in how much space they offer passengers ranging from the Dassault Falcon 2000 series at just over 1,000 cubic feet to the Gulfstream G650/650ER with 2,421 cubic feet. Of course, more than any other cabin size category, large jets – or sometimes referred to as heavy jets – have the most variance. Why? Whereas in light or midsize jets, most configurations are set options offered by the manufacturer, on these large aircraft the owner will often customize his or her aircraft, not just with color schemes and design, but the actual layout.

 

In the same space one large jet may have two club seats and a credenza, or even four club seats, another large jet might have two facing couches, each capable of seating six people. In other words, on the exact same aircraft type, you might see between 10 and 15 seats.

 

In terms of the factors that go into space, it’s a calculation of cabin height, width and length. While length and width will add to your impression of spaciousness if you are tall cabin height is something you will want to consider. The good news is all large-cabin jets according to data provided by Conklin & de Decker have a cabin height of at least six feet with the Gulfstream G650/650ER placing at the top at 6.4 feet. It also happens to have the widest cabin at 6.5 feet.

 

Large Cabin Jet Card Options

 

When buying from a jet card program that sells by cabin size – light, midsize, super midsize and large jet – you will be offered a variety of aircraft types, so in terms of spaciousness, including height and seating, make sure to ask about specifics. We highly recommend that before you focus on jet card price, focus on writing out as much information about your upcoming trips, including how many people will be coming on each trip so you can make sure the aircraft that will be provided meet your needs. Will the smallest jet in the large cabin category meet your needs? If not, will your provider source a jet that does at your fixed rate or will you be subject to on-demand charter pricing?

 

In terms of large jets, several programs offer the ability to select a specific jet type. OneFlight International offers fixed prices and guaranteed availability across more than two dozen specific large jet types, while NetJets, Magellan Jets, Star Jets International and ProspAir all offer programs with fixed rates and guaranteed availability on both the Gulfstream G450 and Gulfstream IV/IVSP types and Dassault Falcon 2000.
