Private Jet Bedrooms: The Best Planes for Late-night Flights
If you’ve spent time on a red-eye flight, you know how important a private jet bedroom or berthable seats can be. While the lights twinkle around you, the thought of closing your eyes and catching some sleep before your arrival has never sounded better.
Instead of sacrificing sleep in the name of productivity by flying through the night, here are several jet charter options that offer ample sleeping opportunities and amenities.
Private Jet Bedrooms vs. Fully-reclining Seats & Couches
Let’s say you’ve got a big trip ahead of you, and in the interest of maximizing your time and productivity on the ground, you decide to book a red-eye flight. When your private flight advisors lists the available aircraft for your trip, you’ll want to consider the:
- Size of the aircraft
- Aircraft amenities
- Aircraft specs
- Your own personal travel preferences
For example, if you plan on getting quality sleep during your late-night flight, you’ll want to opt for a larger aircraft that comes equipped with a private jet bedroom, like a heavy or long-range jet. These aircraft cost more to charter, but they offer ample space to enjoy a good night sleep, which some consider the most important luxury of all.
However, if you only plan on catching a brief nap since you’re not much of a deep sleeper anyway, a smaller aircraft with the acceptable performance capabilities will do. Midsize and super-midsize jets come with sofas or berthable seats that are optimal for short periods of sleep. They also come with a lower rate than their larger counterparts.
Private Jet Bedrooms: The Most Luxurious Picks
If your journey includes reaching the height of luxury, these airliners are the perfect picks for private jet charters.
The Airbus A380
This aircraft is arguably the most luxurious aircrafts available for charter on the market. This jumbo-sized jet costs about $500 million and resembles a penthouse in the sky. These jets are used by major airlines and are typically configured to accommodate 800 passengers, but the ones available for charter are much different in nearly every way. The private charter version is outfitted with several distinct areas and can accommodate several passengers.
The cabin of the A380 resembles a large penthouse, and offers a full-sized dining room, master bedroom (including a king-sized bed!), an ensuite bathroom and so much more. If money is of no concern, the Airbus airliner is by far the most luxurious option.
The Boeing 777X
Touted as a ‘Mansion in the Sky,’ the 777x does not disappoint. This fully-appointed luxury airliner can travel half-way around the world, and to keep the passengers as comfortable as possible during these long flights, every thinkable amenities has been included.
The interiors of these aircraft can vary widely from operator to operator, however, they all typically include:
- A grand entrance
- Spacious dining area for up to 12 guests
- Bar and lounge area
- Office and meeting room
- Full lavatories with stand-up showers and separate vanities
- Walk-in closets
- Master bedroom suite with an extra-large bed
If you’re planning on flying from Sydney to London or Seattle to Dubai and intent on catching several hours of sleep along the way, this airliner is the perfect charter solution.
The Boeing 727 VIP
Smaller than the 777X, The 727 VIP is a really popular charter for short to mid-range travel itineraries. Though the commercial version of this aircraft can accommodate 189 passengers, the VIP model seats between 16 and 30 passengers. This bespoke private jet cabin contains:
- Full stand-up wet bar
- Roomy private bathrooms
- Staterooms and master bedrooms complete with full-sized beds
- Business centres complete with state-of-the-art connectivity amenities

Private Jets with Bedrooms and Showers: The Most Economical Picks
If you’ve still got plans of taking advantage of a private jet bedroom, but not looking to splurge on an airliner, these aircraft are wonderful too.
The Dassault Falcon 7X
This long-range jet charter offers a range of 5,950 nautical miles, which works out to roughly 12 hours of non-stop flight time, and all the comforts of home. This aircraft also features a full-size bed, cabin temperature control and lighting, and low cabin altitude and reduced noise. It creates the perfect space for great sleep.
The Global 7500
This immensely popular charter aircraft boasts a luxurious interior that’s divided into multiple distinct living spaces, one of which includes a master bedroom with its own ensuite and shower. Start the flight with a dinner in the designated dining room, head into the entertainment suite for a quick movie. Afterwards, enjoy a steamy shower and then stretch out in the comfort of your own private jet bedroom for a good night’s rest. Before you know it, you’ll arrive at your destination thoroughly relaxed and refreshed.
The Embraer Lineage 1000
This ‘ultra-large’ jet typically features five distinct living quarters, and yes, a master bedroom with ensuite is one of them. Another feature that travelers enjoy about the Lineage is the walk-in cargo area. This is a great option for those that need to retrieve items from their luggage easily and efficiently. If you’re attending a special event, you can kick off your trip with a good night’s sleep followed by a luxurious shower. Once you’re done, head to the walk-in cargo area and grab your waiting dress or suit that’s been specially hung and stored for the occasion.
Private Jet Bedrooms on the Fly
Of course, sometimes a trip requires a much smaller aircraft. In that case, be sure to mention to your private flight advisor that you’d like an aircraft with a couch or fully-reclinable or berthable seats. When space is limited, simply turn the entire cabin into a bedroom so you can catch some sleep on a short-haul flight.
