When First Class Isn’t Classy Enough: Airline Debuts Private Apartments

This is in a plane.
Airline Debuts New Private Apartments

Ugh, isn’t flying first class the worst? Those luxurious, spacious, reclining seats. The hot towels and free champagne. The flight attendants not treating you like one of the ragged, poverty-stricken suckers in coach. It’s just awful. Luckily for anyone who’s experienced the plebeian horrors of first class, Etihad Airlines is rolling out a new, higher-end alternative: private 3-room apartments. For serious. Each flying residence will include a private bath with shower, a living room, and — here’s the kicker — a personal BUTLER trained at London’s Savoy hotel to tend to your every need. The uber first class cabins will be available on the airline’s double decker Airbus A380 planes, and tickets for a trip between London and Abu Dhabi will run you about $21,000, one way. If you need me, I’ll be crying into my $17 cracker plate in my over-the-wing seat with a broken armrest. Sigh. [Conde Nast Traveler]
