A Dassault Falcon 7X flies near the Burj Khalifa (just outside of the frame of this photo), the tallest building in the world, here in Dubai. Dassault, which also manufactures the Rafale fighter, has a strong business jet presence in the Middle East region, with more than 60 Falcons based here and 12 due for delivery over the next two years. Some 40 percent of Middle East sales are Falcon 7Xs–the French company’s flagship product. Renaud Cloutre, Dassault’s regional sales director, said, “Dassault Falcon aircraft are very well suited to the demands of our Middle East customers, offering long range and large cabins. Our customers are mostly companies and entrepreneurs who are highly mobile, and who move all around the world on business. They need comfortable and well equipped aircraft in which to work and rest en route. Above all, they value the efficient Falcon aircraft design, which means 20 to 40 percent less fuel consumption [compared to other similar-sized aircraft] and lower emissions.”


To bad you can't tell the difference between a 2000LX and a 7X. The picture is a 7X.
