Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) has created a new cabin design concept for its long-haul aircraft, and it’s stunning, to say the least. Dubbed Harmony, the new cabin combines benefits like the space and quietness of Airbus wide-body aircraft to “produce a consistently harmonious customer experience.”

The new cabin design is based on the Airspace cabin brand from the Airbus airliner family and was initially designed for the ACJ330neo, but can be adapted to fit other Airbus wide-bodies, like the Airbus ACJ350XWB.

Stepping on board, guests are immediately greeted by a grand entrance, featuring a holographic globe that shows the aircraft’s position and trajectory.

Past that is a sleek lounge area furnished with futuristic-looking seating options, a floating TV and — of course — LED accent lighting.

There is even a walk-up bar, which rivals those of Emirates and Qatar Airways.

Farther down is a conference table that seats six — this is a corporate jet, after all.

The front of the plane holds the a master bedroom with en-suite bath, a private office and a crew rest area. At the back of the plane are four guest suites, each complete with an office that converts to a bedroom plus ensuite bathrooms with showers. The plane has a range of about 12,430 miles and can seat 25 passengers in a typical seating configuration.

“Long-haul flights provide time for productive work and socialising, as well as rest, and ACJ’s Harmony cabin concept is wonderfully well designed to enable all of these, while bringing the world within a single flight,” said ACJ President Benoit Defforge.

You’ll probably need to win the lottery to fly a plane with this cabin, though if you do win the lottery, you may choose to travel on the $50,000-an-hour Crystal Cruises’ Crystal Skye instead.
