First Class Interiors. Friday , May 18th , 2018 - 13:25:42 PM
Singapore Airlines has quietly upped its game to create a "super-first class" for well-to-do travellers. Its line of Airbus A380 double-decker planes now boast fully enclosed private suites designed by Jean-Jacques Coste who is better known for his range of luxury yachts. There are 12 of these private suites per plane each with a leather seat and separate full-size bed complete with Givenchy-designed duvets and cushions. The two middle suites can be transformed into double accommodation for couples.
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.
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.
