Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could all travel around in luxurious airplanes? For the majority of us, flying is rarely a pleasant experience. Overcrowded flights, arrogant flight attendants, and bland food make flying all the more difficult than the comfortable experience it was meant to be (after all, you are paying the price for “comfort”).
While it’s true that money can’t buy happiness, but it can definitely sponsor you a first-class flight ticket. You may be thinking “what luxury airplanes look like?” How about being served a water-based cocktail, an on-board chef, fully reclining seats and your own private butler?
Here, we dig into the top 5 dream-like luxurious airplanes in the world.
Traveling in Cathay Pacific gives a feel of entering a bar for a drink, but here it’s in the air. Cathay Pacific is Hong Kong based air carrier that promises to give a comfortable experience, and much evidently lives up to it. The interiors of the airplane have incorporated designer figurines seeded by Maria Lobo and Linda Leviton. With a track record of being the most punctual airline, Cathay has also gained attention for serving the finest meals onboard.

Much like the Middle Eastern hospitality standards, Qatar Airways has managed to live up to its reputation as one of the top-rated airlines in the world. We all pamper ourselves every now and then, but how about getting pampered while flying? Sounds fancy, right? While flying with them, you’ll be welcomed with an attractive kit containing Giorgio Armani products. Their lounge area too is bigger than the usual 10 Olympic-size swimming pools. What more would you need?
One-way Cost: Rs. 4, 50,000 (approx.)
Ranked as the world’s best airline in 2018, their first class services are no less than that of a 7 star hotel.

And guess what, you wouldn’t have to sleep in your tight denims and leather boots, because Singapore Airlines provides bedroom slippers and Pajamas too!
One-way Cost: Rs. 12, 00, 000 (approx.)
Etihad’s definition of luxury is beyond leaps. Could you imagine showering during your journey? Or staying in a giant in-flight “first-apartment” with a fully flat 6-foot-10 inch bed? On top of this, you get a personal butler as well as a gourmet chef to satiate your mid-air hunger pangs as soon as you settle into your mansion!
One-way Cost: Rs. 5, 80, 000 (approx.)
In real life, we’ve never had a personal assistant, but Lufthansa provides one to their first-class travelers. If you really want to see what German simplicity and class-apart hospitality looks like, then travel by Lufthansa. With more to add, when the boarding starts, the passengers are driven from the airport to the plane by a Porsche or a Mercedes Benz.
One-way Cost: Rs. 8, 00, 000 (approx.)
