wessley hurt. First Class Interiors. May 17th , 2018.
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.
If you utilize the same category of aircraft for your flights at least 80 percent of the time private ownership can also make economic sense. However if your mission changes regularly traveling long range on some flights short to mid-range on others sometimes with just one or two colleagues other flights with a whole team then looking to purchase a private airplane would not make much sense no matter how sweet the deal because one category of aircraft would not serve the majority of travel needs. Charter could be better for this scenario because you can always select the right aircraft for each flight. Some fractional ownership programs and jet cards allow customers to select among three or four aircraft categories (light mid-size super-midsize and large cabin/long range jets) and use more than one aircraft simultaneously providing another option for fliers who need access to several categories of aircraft.
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.
