Fly in Luxury and Style with Renowned Airlines
Airlines Proven Fruitful for Flyers
Just like any other industry, aviation also sees intense competition, and this rivalry between airlines has proven to be immensely fruitful for flyers. From cheapest flight tickets to premium services, passengers are in for a treat. One thing that has come out of this competition and amazed everyone is an exclusive class of travel. For a long time, Economy and Business classes catered to our needs, but the regular flyers expected more. Then came the First Class that took everyone for a surprise, and the current times are historic as no one ever thought of having their own luxury rooms up in the air. Going beyond all the former classes of air travel, carriers now feature an exclusive class, which is, to say, a step above the premium.
Business and First Class flying has become a regular thing, and they no longer fascinate flyers. They want and expect more. They look for some private, alone time or with their loved ones as they fly to their destination. To fulfil these demands of customers, airlines have worked immensely hard and done numerous additions to their product portfolio.
Better than just another passenger flight, and slightly lower than chartered ones, the private cabins take travellers to the next level of comfort and luxury. Enjoy the ease of home while you fly to your destination. These opulent First Class suites come with cosy beds, flat-screen television sets and made-to-order meals. And, these are just a few of the things that flyers can enjoy in the sanctity of their private suites. Continue reading, and you will come to know what the renowned airlines of the world are offering to enhance the travelling experience of their customers.
Beyond Suites with Etihad Airways
Etihad Airways, the national airlines of the United Arab Emirates, is among the fastest growing carriers in the history of the aviation industry. With its lifespan of just over a decade, it has become one of the most preferred air service providers in the world.

Earlier, we heard of the First Class being upgraded to Suites, but Etihad Airways has somehow managed to take it a step ahead. These cabins are equipped with adjustable 24-inch flat-screen televisions, a relaxing bed and vanity cabinet. With the bookings for the First Apartment category, flyers can share an intimate flight with their loved one as the divider between the cabins can be lowered to join rooms. Hop into the elegant bathroom that comes with these suites and have a refreshing shower before you reach your destination. To enhance the luxury experience, Etihad Airways offers pre-book chauffeur service and state-of-the-art airport lounges.
