Check out our in-depth aircraft spotlight on the Lineage 1000E, or keep reading to see why it’s a top choice among the world’s most elite travelers.
About Embraer’s Lineage 1000E
The Lineage, a luxury conversion of Embraer’s E-190 airliner, first launched in 2006. It’s bigger than the ACJ319 and BBJ, but has lower operating costs, giving it a double competitive advantage over similar aircraft.
And with its increased size, there’s no denying the appeal of its five-zone interior, which includes a queen-sized master suite; en-suite bathroom; spacious lounge and dining areas; and a high spec galley with convection oven, microwave and dishwasher.
With such lavish features that spare no detail, it’s truly no surprise that it has proved popular with royalty and dignitaries.
The key selling point of the $53M Lineage 1000E is space. It can seat up to 19 passengers with ease, but the more popular layouts include seating for 8 and ample space for storage, amenities, and moving about the cabin. In either configuration, luggage space is also very generous, with the largest in-flight accessible baggage compartment in business aviation.
While the Lineage 1000E has a relatively low profile in the US, its space and high-spec luxury interior makes it popular in the Middle East and Asian markets.
What to Expect On Board the Lineage 1000E
This is clearly one of the most prestigious aircraft of its kind, so much so that you’ll want to try out every seat, open every compartment, and spend much of your flight marveling at the level of luxury and detail that went into its making.
When you need a quiet space for business meetings, this aircraft has you covered. Spacious work tables, large monitors, plenty of power outlets, on board WiFi, and ergonomic seating makes it easy to take care of business throughout your flight. In fact, the entire look and feel of the space is much like having an office in the sky. You don’t have to sacrifice on space and privacy, plus you have all the equipment and technology you need to keep business going.
A taller cabin and longer fuselage also add to its spaciousness, offering you ample leg and elbow room and allowing passengers to stand to full height with ease. This is a major advantage for taller passengers who are used to sacrificing their comfort.
