Dassault make a great flying product for the front end but it’s not an intercontinental aircraft.
Ask the F/As where they store catering or rest on a 5500nm leg in a 7X.
Acquisition was done by people with no experience in either.
Dassault gave me my grey hair.
And I can smell the stink of the chemical lav after 12 hours as I type.
I agree with your sentiments. Personally, I reckon the 7X was a terrible decision, especially given the commitment to the G550s had already been made, and I’m not a huge fan of Gulfstreams either!
PS - does the 7X really not have a vacuum loo?
