The Sovereign+ entered service between the XLS+ and the
Latitude and is the most expensive of the three aircraft by
US$5.19m and US$1.465m respectively.
The Sovereign+ shares the same cabin cross-section as
the XLS+, which is smaller than the Latitude’s. However,
the Sovereign+ flies further and faster and has the longest
cabin – 6ft 9in (2.06m) longer than the XLS+ and 3ft 6in
(1.07m) longer than the Latitude. This gives the space for
a double club (with four executive tables) and a forward
single side-facing seat as standard.
An optional alternative layout replaces two club seats
with a three-place couch, and adds an extra side-facing
seat upfront, to boost capacity to 12 with the lav seat
The VIP seats can be fully berthed and rotated, and
offer universal outlets. Other standard features include a
refreshment centre with trash container and ice drawer,
storage including a 312 lb (142kg)-capacity compartment
in the lav and dedicated beverage storage.
The aircraft also offers domestic (US) internet and
a wireless CMS as standard, which can be accessed on
iOS and Android devices. As well as moving maps and
streaming content, there is a 12.1in (30.7cm) display.
Options include a high-power outlet for the
refreshment centre, high-power cabin outlets, a
microwave, custom glassware storage, international
internet and four-channel XM radio. Extra cabin speakers
are a no-charge option.
