millen audrey. First Class Interiors. May 16th , 2018.
At 1015 PM approximately 30 minutes after departure the first drink service started and my travel partner and I enjoyed the flight`s featured cocktail the Iceberg Cosmopolitan (a refreshing mixture of Newfoundland-made Iceberg Vodka mixed with cranberry juice and a splash of Grand Marnier). A small plate of premium nuts was served as well. This was soon after followed by a hot towel service and 45 minutes after departure the Captain had still not welcomed us aboard the flight with a standard flight synopsis announcement. Captain Green made no such announcement on this flight.
Not everyone needs to personalise their private jet to indulge their taste for luxury. Some people are quite content to merely fly first-class provided their every whim is catered to and their every comfort is assured. Airlines such as Etihad have cottoned on to the needs of the super rich and have taken first-class flying to stratospheric levels. Even Etihad`s economy class is designed to make travellers feel more like valued customers and less like cattle bound for slaughter.
Prior to its present esteemed status it must be noted that Emirates had slightly slipped from second position a rank which it has held from the past couple of years. Its customer services and value scores relegated the airline at third place last year although it has consistently kept its high ratings in amenities food and in-flight services. Nevertheless Emirates persevered and continued to hurdle benchmarks for excellence just as it had always performed through all these years. A point of interest though is the airline`s signature Shower Spa offered at the first class section. This state-of-the art innovation in airline amenities had somehow made Emirates cope up with speed with the very best.
What do you do if you have a couple of million dollars burning a hole in your wallet? You customise the interior of your private jet of course. When owning a private jet has lost its lustre and you need something to up the opulence ante you can trust Tag Aircraft Interiors and Versace to put your swagger back. The two companies which at first glance appear to be mutually exclusive joined forces to allow the uber-rich the luxury of unique one-off cabin interiors. The design team will even listen to input from clients but there is no guarantee that "suggestions" will be implemented.
