For long-haul luxury, private jets may not be the most practical or cost-effective solution. We work with all major airlines and can offer competitive fares in Business and First Class to start your holiday in style. Some of the best First / Business Class include:
Etihad The Residence
On board the Upper Deck of Etihad’s A380 you will find a luxury three-room apartment in the sky. Designed for up to two guests, The Residence features an en-suite shower room, private bedroom and separate living area.
Your Etihad Butler will be at your service during your flight. He will be ready with your favourite drink and will even pre-arrange your pillow preference. For dining, chefs will prepare and serve everything to your taste – from gourmet cuisine to lighter refreshments, with wine pairings if you wish.
When it’s time to sleep, sink into a double bed with a natural fibre, custom-made mattress, premium bedding and luxury sleepwear. You can close your bedroom door for complete privacy and even have breakfast in bed. Freshen up before your land with a warm shower in your en-suite shower room, fully stocked with Aqua di Parma products, luxury bath linens and soft robes.
Fly in The Residence to or from Abu Dhabi, London, New York, Sydney, Paris and Seoul. Chauffered airport transfers are also included.
Qatar Airways Q Suite
The Qsuite is Qatar Airways latest award-winning Business Class product, which they advertise as ‘First in Business Class’. The highlights of the Qsuite are the doors and dividers which offer privacy, a fully lie-flat bed, in-suite accent lighting and generous storage spaces creating a new standard in comfort.
The ‘quad’ of seats in the centre section (two forward plus two rear facing) can have the internal partitions down to make a 4-passenger suite/private area. Or if travelling as a couple, the divider between the two seats can be removed, making effectively a small double bed.
Qsuite is available on selected B777 and A350.
Emirates 777 First Class
Emirates’ ‘new’ 777 First Class cabin is referred to as a ‘hotel room in the sky’. It features just six suites (compared to 14 older suites on the A380) and are completely different from what is offered on any other Emirates aircraft.
The suites offer incredible levels of privacy courtesy of floor to ceiling walls, fully customizable lighting, an intercom system that allows a passenger to video-chat to one (or more) of the flight attendants and an impressive selection of meals and drinks. They even feature a zero-gravity seat setting to find your body’s natural resting position.
The 6 suites are arranged in a 1-1-1 cabin layout which means that two of the suites don’t have access to the aircraft’s windows, however, with the use of images taken from cameras built into the exterior of the aircraft, live high definition views are shown on to ‘virtual windows’ built into the centre suites.
Singapore Airlines A380 Suites
Often regarded as one of the world’s best carriers, the new suites on Singapore Airlines A380 offer a huge bedroom in the sky. Just six First Class Suites are located in three rows either side of the central aisle in the front section of the upper deck, each with its own sliding door for privacy. Each suite comes with a large leather swivel seat and a separate folding bed, a configuration which enables you to lounge comfortably in the chair or rest on the bed without the need to convert the bed from a sitting position. If you are travelling as a couple, book seats 1A & 2A (or 1F &2F) and remove the divider between the two suites to create one huge suite with double bed.
Dining is on-demand with vintage champagnes and fine wines and to keep you entertained during the flight, each suite has a 32in TV with Bose noise-cancelling headphones.
The new suites should be rolled out across the A380 fleet by the end of 2020.
Air France La Premiere Class (777-300s)
Found on Air France’s 777-300s, ‘La Premiere’ class offers chic sophistication and style: soft leather, suede, textile fabrics with a tweed trim, subtle wood and metallic finishes.
While the cabin is arranged in a regular 1-2-1 configuration, Air France puts only one row of First Class, where most airlines put two or three, therefore giving the cabin an incredibly exclusive feeling. Seats offer a floor to ceiling curtain and a bedside lamp, giving a feeling of intimacy. The flat bed measures more than two metres and comes with a memory foam mattress and fluffy duvet.
Dining, as would be expected, is a gourmet treat too. Top names in French haute cuisine take it in turns to offer brand-new creations, from Joël Robuchon, the world’s most Michelin-starred chef, to Régis Marcon, who boasts three Michelin stars.
La Premiere is available on select routes on Air France’s 777-300s (not the A380).
