What does the future of luxury air travel look like? According to Tino Schaedler and Michael J Brown it comes in the form of a lifestyle zeppelin. The concept craft which they have called the Strato Cruiser Airship is an enormous carbon fibre zeppelin with an advanced propulsion system and photovoltaic cells to make travel safer faster and cleaner.
Trust me when I say that the airlines really do sympathize with all those folks back there in coach manning the galley oars and pulling like hopped-up little monkeys. After all I was a "non rev" (airline employee flying on a free or very cheap "space available" basis) and I learned how to pack a bag to make sure it doesn`t`t have to be checked at the last minute while boarding the plane for example. I know how rough and spartan it can be back there.
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.
