wessley hurt. First Class Interiors. May 16th , 2018.
When Brazilian company Embraer known for its innovative design and BMW which is synonymous with motoring luxury teamed up first-class flyers new they were in for a treat. Embraer provided the jets and BMW`s DesignworksUSA studio provided the interiors which have BMW style stamped all over them. The lines are straight and clean and there is a great deal of black and white it has been described as Teutonic and tech-heavy. There is a full galley as well as a full bathroom and the seats convert into flat beds.
There are many ways this transaction can take place but it`s important that the charter client be aware of how the broker will be compensated for their services. This is a simplified summary of how the charter process works when using a broker to arrange for travel on your behalf.

As we took our seats 2D and 2F in a full Business-Class cabin National Post and Globe and Mail newspapers were handed out along with a Spanish language Chilean paper. A bottle of water was waiting in each seat for each passenger however there was no pre-departure drink service for the Business-Class passengers (orange juice champagne wine etc) as is standard on other airlines. I decided the check the magazine rack for some interesting in-flight reading material only to find Canadian Living Chatellaine Canada Food and Wine and Canadian Fishing; titles that are of little interest to most business travelers. There were no business and news magazines such as The Economist Business Week or Time which one would naturally expect to be provided. Our flight was under the command of Captain Green and he did not provide the passengers with a welcome aboard announcement telling us about flying time planned routing enroute weather or weather at destination.
At 0730 AM some 10 hours after departure we finally heard from the flight-deck when the First Officer informed us that we had commenced our decent the current temperature was 2 degrees C at Toronto and we would be landing in 35 minutes (at 605 AM local time) and parking at gate 155 at Toronto`s new Terminal 1. I grabbed my in-flight kit and dashed to the lav to quickly freshen up and the Flight Attendants were now collecting all service items preparing the cabin for landing. We touched down at 0610 AM and arrived at gate 155 at 0622 AM some 22 minutes after the flight`s 0600 AM scheduled arrival time. As we were the first passengers off the aircraft we were quickly processed through customs and immigration but to our dismay our baggage was not priority processed and we waited about 20 minutes for it to arrive on the belt.
