An optional kit for BBJs that will provide a 6,500-foot cabin at FL410 instead of the current 8,000-foot cabin is going through the FAA approval process now and will not be available until mid-year, according to Boeing. The company announced at last year’s NBAA Convention that the kit would be available early this year. The kit, which can be installed on green and in-service BBJs with no structural changes required, is expected to cost less than $100,000.
