In the race among most airlines to pack in more paying customers into a fixed and very limited aircraft cabin the idea of what constitutes "foot space" or any "space" at all for that matter is a fungible and never easily understood concept on the part of an airline passenger. Believe me when I say that - as a former airline manager - that the airlines would LOVE to give everybody in every section of the plane their own personal "space" but that`s not going to happen in this lifetime from what I can tell.
Despite the sagging economy the air travel industry has remained strong. Part of the reason for this is because people will always have a need to get from one place to another for business purposes. As more and more major companies locate their corporate headquarters offshore travel to another city or even another country is actually very likely. Commercial airlines are not the only ones to reap the benefits of this boom in air travel however. Studies show that there has also been a substantial increase in the number of travelers who choose the charter aircraft option. The fact that the cost of a private jet rental tends to be substantially higher than flying commercial has done little to deter this trend.
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.
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.
