A common problem for most billionaires is sometimes your private jet needs to go in for an oil change. But how will you visit your private island on the other side of the world? Surely not commercial! You will be surprised how luxurious first class can be on these top carriers.
Here’s our pick of the top five:
Let’s go through the top five most luxurious cabins that you can fly on today.
ANA’s 777-300ER First Class
We were blown away when ANA revealed their refreshed first-class cabin concept, called East Meets West, featuring a private suite with a 43-inch 4k monitor. In fact, you could not fit in a bigger tv screen. The suite features a door so your privacy is guaranteed.
Air France’s 777-300ER La Premiere Class
An often unmentioned first-class suite is Air France take on the concept. First, passengers are driven to the plane in a private car skipping the boarding with the commoners entirely. Each seat has four windows to itself, bespoke white styling, exquisite onboard tasting menu and a private floor to ceiling curtain that offers uncomplicated privacy.
Emirates Boeing 777-300ER First Class
Emirates comes in third with their take on the first class cabin. With 40 square feet of private space, a 32 inch TV screen which you can video chat to your flight attendant, and visual reality windows. The seat features a zero gravity position to give you a feeling like you are floating among the clouds. This cabin also features some of the only floor to ceiling privacy doors found in the air.
Emirates is also notable for having an excellent first-class product on its A380 aircraft.
Singapore’s A380 First Class Suite
Starting this journey is the Singapore A380 first-class suite. This private suite at around 50 square feet features a standalone lie flatbed, a rotating recliner chair, a 32-inch tv screen not unlike found in most lounge rooms, and amazing dining options. Plus if you’re traveling with a companion, the two suites can be joined to create a 100 square foot palace with double bed.
Plus, Singapore might be reinventing its first class for its new 777X to be delivered in 2022.
Etihad A380 ’The Residence’
The number one most luxurious first-class experience is Etihad’s ‘The Residence’ on board their Airbus A380. The Residence features a living room, a double bed, and your very own personal butler. Other first-class guests need to share the shower onboard, but you get your own to be used as many times as you like.
