Are you wondering how do the rich fly when money is no object and luxury has no limits? Well, their air suites are loaded with luxurious add-ons brimming with champagne and caviar. But most of all, they have a whopping price tag to match! But have you ever wondered, what traveling in the world’s most expensive plane would feel like? Etihad Airways’ The Residence, which is the world’s most expensive plane suite, and its amenities will blow your mind.
A Luxury Three-Suite Room With Five-Star Amenities
Etihad had introduced a London-Melbourne round trip ticket which costs more than $80,000 (₹53 lakhs approximately). But what so special in this carrier you ask? It provides a luxury three-room suite aboard its Airbus A380 named ‘The Residence’. Described as ‘penthouse in the sky’, it has all the amenities of a five-star hotel.
The Suite Has A Butler & An On-Board Chef
The 125 square foot suite has its own Savoy-trained butler and onboard chef. Besides, it is equipped with a flat double bed instead of confining seats along with a luxury bathroom. What’s more, the living room has a 32-inch flat-screen LCD TV, as well as dining tables and a leather double sofa.
A Four-Course Meal In The Sky
Other amenities, toiletries, pyjamas, loungewear robe, a mini-refrigerator, and even noise-canceling headphones. But wait, there is more on offer in flight. You will also receive a personalised letter from the pilot and a four-course in-flight meal. They can surely make you feel extra special.
Private Transfers & VIP Lounge Access Part Of The Package
The ticket cost also includes private transfer to and from the airport, separate check-in, VIP lounge, and a personal travel concierge for booking events and reserving a table at a restaurant. The price for this is about $4,500 (₹3 lakh approximately) more than the previous most expensive ticket, a return journey in the Residence from New York to Mumbai.
The Airbus A380 with The Residence onboard was first launched in 2014 along with Etihad’s upgraded first and business class and economy cabin. But can we please win a lottery to experience this?
