This new, state-of-the-art aircraft, configured for just 52 guests, is the next step forward in innovating new ways to explore life-list destinations around the globe. Its development and design were guided by guest-centric and research-informed insights.
Fun Facts About the Airbus A321 neo-LR
We have a webpage dedicated to the Airbus A321 benefits, but here are a few additional interesting facts about the A321 neo-LR:
- The A321 neo-LR features CFM Leap engines along with Airbus’ fuel-saving wingtip Sharklets. Together, they bring fuel efficiencies of 20-30% over older technology.
- Typical cruising altitude is 39,000 feet.
- Max aircraft lift is up to 213,800 pounds.
- The aircraft is 146 feet long with a wingspan of 117 feet 5 inches and a wing surface area of 1,318 square feet, about the same as the floor space of an average three-bedroom house.
- The jet has a range of 4,603 miles (8-9 hours) but we also use it for short day trips to major sites.
- To reach max range, we take advantage of Additional Center Tanks (ACTs) for max fuel uplift.
- The aircraft came off the Airbus Hamburg final assembly line in late 2020 and went in for VIP bespoke custom configuration shortly after in Bordeaux, France.
- During configuration, we removed two of the standard lavatories and storage closets and replaced them with a larger and wider lavatory with a full-length mirror and bench seating.
- The A321 neo-LR has a cabin capacity for up to 244 passengers. On our trips, the jet is reconfigured with 52 spacious seats, which makes for a roomy interior that allows our guests the ability to stretch and move around in comfort.
- To ensure we are ready for anything, the aircraft Fly-Away Kit (FAK) carries engineering supplies including a spare wheel and tow bar. In addition, we travel with an engineer on all programs.
- The aircraft has an 180-minute extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standard (ETOPS 180 capable) meaning it can fly routes up to 180 minutes from the nearest airport suitable for diversion. This rating covers 95% of the earth’s surface routes.
