Embraer’s Legacy 600, 650 and 650E have the largest total baggage volume of any large-cabin jet, and best of all, all of the baggage storage is accessible from the passenger cabin

 

So, how much luggage space is in a private jet? If you need lots of room, Embraer’s Legacy 600/650/650E series offers 27% more baggage storage than the next aircraft type – 286 cubic feet, based on data supplied by Conklin & de Decker. In second place is Gulfstream’s G V/500/550 models at 202 cubic feet. The third cluster at 195 cubic feet of storage is the Gulfstream 650/650E, Bombardier Global Express XRS/5000/6000 series with the base Global Express at 195 cubic feet of storage. The next grouping, in terms of most luggage space at 169 cubic feet are the Gulfstream GIV/IVSP/450/350/300 and related series.

 

Choosing the right private jet for your trip sometimes comes down to how much baggage do you have, but when comparing the luggage capacity of private jets it’s worth noting volume is generally reported in cubic feet, but you will find it split between internal and external storage. While external storage does not mean your luggage is being strapped to the wing, it means that at least some of the storage areas are not accessible to the passenger cabin. At the same time, internal volume doesn’t mean that the baggage will be in the passenger cabin with you. It simply means that the baggage area is accessible in-flight from the passenger cabin. Even with internal storage, the baggage is loaded through a separate door or hatch so you won’t be disturbed by having bags loaded or unloaded.

 

How do cubic feet compare to your actual luggage? XOJET, which offers the Legacy 650 as an option for on-demand charter, says it can take 10 golf bags, nine suitcases, and six carry-on bags. If you have an odd size or oversize luggage, make sure when you are talking to your broker or provider you have measurements. It has to fit in either through a luggage hatch or the main cabin door. Also, think about weight. Aircraft not only have maximum limits but weight also has to be balanced, so it’s important to allow the pros to figure out the logistics ahead of time.

 

Below is a comparison of over 45 large cabin private jets ranked by most luggage storage space.
