First Class Interiors. Thursday , May 17th , 2018 - 04:14:59 AM
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.
Luxury flights are generally deluxe flights that have expensive and high-class accommodation and several other frills. An abundance of space and extra comforts complete with a lavish environment are essential to luxury flights. People will fnd luxury flights have spacious interiors a relaxing environment an attentive and competent crew serving world class cuisine. Specific facilities may differ from airline to airline. Some may offer individual LCD screens with hi-fi headsets for uninterrupted viewing pleasure. Some go one step ahead and take movie requests a day earlier. The crew is trained to anticipate passenger needs and wishes. World class cuisine specially prepared taking into consideration specific dietary needs and preferences of the passengers is served on the planes as well. Care is taken to gather all these details at least 48 hours before departure. A handful of business tickets can generate as much revenue as dozens of economy seats. But as economy class becomes more cost-effective business and first class get much classier and more enticing than ever before.
If you often need to make flights on short notice or have an unpredictable schedule or planned route the total access that ownership provides is its own greatest benefit. With your own private plane there is no minimum call out time no concern that all the charter aircraft are booked when you need to make a critical flight. Even jet card and fractional ownership programs may take hours to sometime days during busy time periods like holidays to make an aircraft available.
