Magic Carpet Ride

Smaller 737 and A320 private jets travel a maximum of 9.5 to 10 hours on a tank of jet fuel. The 787 can travel 9,200 miles with fuel to spare. And it is ultra luxurious:

I thought the comment- "You can fly in an environment that is very green" was strange. The interior of the aircraft may claim to be green but jet travel is anything but.
It was a fantasy of mine to live on an aircraft like this when I was in my 40's and flying 250K miles a year.
