Flying may get you from point A to B. But some prefer to do more than just fly. Be it the comfort, perks, or the prestige, some choose to travel in class. First class. Well if you’re one of those people, then check out these, the world’s most expensive airline flights.
American Airlines First Class
Have roughly $1,800 to spare? Well that’s how much it costs to fly first class on this airline. For that price, you can expect to enjoy seats that swivel and convert into beds, along with complimentary noise canceling headphones. Oh, and the legroom is to die for.
Air India First Class
This flight’s first class section boast seats called “sleeperettes” – which recline a full 180 degrees, that are also equipped with a full mattress topper. But the food is the real delight, with kabobs and lamb chops on the menu. Cost? About $2,000.
Jet Airways First Class
How would you like to wear your pajamas on your next flight? Well don’t worry about packing them, because this airline gives you those, along with an eye mask and slippers to enjoy when you fly first class. Once you wake up, expect to order dishes such as squash soup or delectable cheese plates, along with wine or champagne, of course. All of this can be yours for the low low price of just $3,000.
Korean Air Kosmo Suites
Going to Korea anytime soon? If so, back massages and your very own footrest are awaiting your departure. Just be prepared to depart with $3,300 of your money.
Air Canada First Class
Leave it to the Canadians to take first class flying to new heights. This airline redefines what it means to be comfortable with their new sleep pod, which allows you to rest while at the same time, receive a neck and back massage. Want to be that comfortable? $4,000 please and thank you.
All Nippon Airways First Class
Forget the Canadians; leave it up to the Japanese to invent a whole new way to fly. For starters, you’ll be provided with an international phone for calling whomever you want, wherever you want. Then there’s the meal, a traditional Japanese fare including the finest sushi. After dinner, relax in your own private bed, equipped with TV, and cocktail table. Did we mention it’s $7,500 to fly this way?
Air France First Class
So if $7,500 isn’t too steep, how about adding on another $600? On Air France it gets you your own private recliner, which comes with a built-in massager. Then there’s your lush slippers and choice of personal TV, where you can watch any movie you want.
Emirates Airlines First Class
How would you like your own recliner that comes with a sliding door for privacy? What about your own mini bar, along with lots of room to change clothes? How would you like to fly one of the most privacy offering planes around? Yes? Then how would you like to pay $21,200 for it?
Called “The Residence”, Etihad Airlines’ first class comes with your own personal chauffeaur to pick you up, and concierge to serve you. The seats are to die for as they’re made with Poltrona Frau leather – the same company that upholsters the seats in a Maserati or Ferrari. And, no $29,000 flight – that’s right, $29,000 – would be complete without a 73-inch bed that massages you while you sleep.
Cathay Airlines First Class
While not as private as the Emirates offering, in this flight you get two full reclining seats that face one another, along with an LCD touch screen that controls everything from lights to the position of your chair. The seats fold into a full size bed, and you are given your own pajamas. But I’m guessing it’s the hand-prepared meal and wine that you get is the reason you’ll be paying $31,300 for this Asian airline flight.
