First Class Interiors. Friday , May 18th , 2018 - 12:46:38 PM
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.
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.
The safety and security of outright ownership is another benefit that transcends cost considerations. As the owner of the aircraft you know the crew and the configuration of the aircraft. In fact some corporate executive insurance policies stipulate travel and security conditions and provisions for key executives that practically dictate travel by private jet.
