wessley hurt. First Class Interiors. May 20th , 2018.
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.
Emirates was heavily preferred through a survey-replies from public opinion polls in Chinese Spanish Russian and English-by about 18.2 million passengers that represented more than 150 countries all over the world. The survey dubbed as the "world`s largest review site" is the world`s largest airline passenger satisfaction survey which is conducted annually by the prestigious U.K.-based travel consultancy Skytrax-the public face of In-flight Research Services.
As we took our seats 2D and 2F in a full Business-Class cabin National Post and Globe and Mail newspapers were handed out along with a Spanish language Chilean paper. A bottle of water was waiting in each seat for each passenger however there was no pre-departure drink service for the Business-Class passengers (orange juice champagne wine etc) as is standard on other airlines. I decided the check the magazine rack for some interesting in-flight reading material only to find Canadian Living Chatellaine Canada Food and Wine and Canadian Fishing; titles that are of little interest to most business travelers. There were no business and news magazines such as The Economist Business Week or Time which one would naturally expect to be provided. Our flight was under the command of Captain Green and he did not provide the passengers with a welcome aboard announcement telling us about flying time planned routing enroute weather or weather at destination.
The supply of private aircraft on the market currently is high in historical perspectives and the relatively soft current demand has pushed prices of preowned private aircraft to all time lows. At the same time as private aircraft manufacturers want to keep their operation at full capacity they are offering great sales incentives to buyers right now. Those recent trends have caused a modest uptick in private jet sales as buyers are taking advantage of the market oversupply. Aviation consultants and industry professionals have reported seeing a recent rise in the number of first time private plane buyers brought into the market by today`s relatively bargain prices for private jets.
