Will Gulfstream regain Longest range Jet Title

Now that the Global 7000 has taken the crown as the longest range corporate jet at 7700nm. One wonders what the response from Gulfstream will be. Is there going to be a re-engined G650ER with Rolls Royce Pearl engines as has been talked about, or a stretched 600 with a bigger wing with the name G700.

is the Rolls Royce Pearl a better more fuel efficient engine that the PW815 as used on the G600. It seems a given that the wing design off the 600 and the avionics architecture will be used in any future variants.

Thoughts anyone?

My immediate thought is "no thank you" to any longer range than is already available.

The legs being put on jets are getting too much for humans to cope with in regards to crews. Especially when the ability to rest is given as an "option".

But, invariably, GS will want the crown back and come up with one of the variations mentioned.

I’m sure there is still some space left in the wings...

Cheapest option for Gulfstream: Introduce another ASC G650ER->G650LR, move the fuel sensors a bit further and charge an extra million or two...

Note - Global 7000 now named the Global 7500 - just a bit harder to say in conversation!

Is that a suggestion regarding a Crew rest area?

No, that is for the single passenger. The cabin is full of crew rest areas.
