Boeing unveiled interior concepts for the 787 VIP widebody airliner family at last week's Middle East Business Aviation conference and exhibition in Dubai.

"A Boeing 787 VIP affords its owner complete accommodation," said Boeing Business Jets president Steven Hill at the show. "Aboard this aircraft owners can fly anywhere in the world non-stop, and on those long-distance flights it is critical to have amenities and a cabin environment that allow passengers to be completely comfortable and productive."

Boeing has commissioned several design firms to develop preliminary concepts for 787 VIP interiors and has clinched seven 787 VIP orders to date from undisclosed customers - four 787-8s and three 787-9s.

The first commercial 787 is scheduled to make its maiden flight this year.
