The Embraer Lineage 1000 is a variant of the Embraer 190 regional jet airliner, launched as a private jet on May 2, 2006. Manufactured by the Brazilian aerospace firm Embraer, the Lineage is advertised as an "ultra-large" business jet with comfortable seating for 19.
Embraer say that the Lineage 1000E can have five distinct cabin zones, offering hundreds of different configurations. That means you can have separate sleeping, eating, meeting and relaxing zones, and have one zone left over for the kids. While that sounds attractive, most configurations prefer to keep a feeling of open space across the whole cabin, so only cocoon off the bedroom and meeting room.
Being a bizliner, the Lineage 1000E has an abundance of luggage space, although the extra range is courtesy of additional fuel tanks. The aircraft does however have access to the rear luggage bay during flight.
Although the Lineage 1000E has a maximum speed of Mach 0.82 (541 mph / 870 kph) the normal cruise speed is Mach 0.79 (521 mph / 841 kph). That means that it will take a little bit longer to get to your destination than on a purpose built business jet, but because of the size of the aircraft you’ll be a lot more comfortable along the way.
The Lineage 1000E has the lowest cabin altitude of any aircraft in the ultra large segment, with a cabin altitude of 7,000 feet, even at the aircraft’s maximum operating altitude of 41,000 feet. And that means that your body feels less affects
