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.
At 1130 PM (almost two hours after take-off) the meal trays were collected and a wine (port) gourmet cheese fruit and cracker service commenced followed by desert and tea. I opted for the Cherimoya Mousse in a Chocolate Cup which was delightful. Very decadent and was enjoyed by all the surrounding passengers! There were extras of the Chocolate Cup available and passengers were offered a second helping. We politely declined. Desert and tea service continued until midnight and cabin lights were dimmed at 1210 AM for several hours of sleeping.
To round up the other winners of the world`s best airlines with their respective awards: Air Asia won as The Best Economical Airline; Japan`s ANA bagged the prize having the cleanest cabins; The Best Economy Class was awarded to Garuda Indonesia; Air New Zealand took The Best Premium Economy; Malaysia Airlines` Satay Service was adjudged for having the Best Signature Dish; The Best Business Class was captured by Qatar Airways while Etihad Airways settled for Best First Class.
