Eight years after the release of the successful Falcon 2000, Dassault released the Falcon 2000EX. It still had all of the components that made the Falcon 2000 great – economy, speed, a large cabin – but improved on all of these elements to make an even better jet. The cabin of the Dassault Falcon 2000EX has a volume of more than 1,000 cubic feet and usually seats between eight and twelve passengers. A seating arrangement for as many as 19 passengers can be configured, if necessary. In the standard eight-to-twelve seating arrangement, two seats can stretch out flat and combine so that passengers can actually lay down for a nap, just as they would do in a bed. True to the French dedication to style, a wide variety of interior decorating options are available – for example, there are eighteen different metal finishes to choose from just for the bathroom sink alone. 131 cubic feet of baggage space is available, a total of 1,600 pounds.
