Why The Top Luxury Airlines Are A Step Above The Rest

Mar 8, 2008
Turn the clock back a couple of decades and, for most, air travel itself used to be a luxury. Instead of hours and hours of travel by the slower modes of transit, air travel meant getting to the destination quicker. Just getting there sooner was a luxury. In our technologically spoiled times though, the word has changed to mean a more elaborate set of demands. A personal TV, an array of channels, movies, games and other entertainment is just the beginning of what you would experience in quite a few business class air packages, and even economy class will provide you some amenities.

What sets the ultimate luxury air travel experiences apart is the personal touch given to the mass transit aircraft.

The personal touch has to be achieved throughout the experience; from the moment you check into the airport to the time you are dropped off at your hotel in Asia, in a limo, preferably. For some airlines, even before check in, you are the airline's 'guest'. A limousine to pick and drop you at the hotel, a personal helper to guide you through checks, to make sure your luggage is boarded properly, and to ensure you are enjoying even the wait in the pre-flight lounge. Cocktails in the lounge, a meal if you would like one and a person ever ready to take care of your comforts is a part of the package in luxury travel, all while you are not even on the plane.

When it comes to luxury air travel, the Asian airlines have maintained a status quo others simply fail to reach. Check European luxury flight packages for comparison and the Europeans, and Americans come off second best all the time the margin varies but don't be surprised if their luxury would match what the Asian airlines offer in their business class!

Luxury has different meanings, changing with contexts; and while some confuse it with gaudy, luxury is not overbearing or flashy but just the ultimate comfort. The Asian airlines presenting the ultimate luxury airline suites have taken luxury to mean privacy and fortifying the feeling of being the guest of honor onboard the flight. On a luxury flight, you, the passenger, is the person they want to please. Elaborate five course meals, the ability to have a guest dine face to face with you, menu's prepared by famous chefs and comfortable beds within the privacy of your personal suite are just a few things to experience onboard a luxury aircraft. There are flights of imagination you never want to end, a flight in a luxury airline promises to be a physical flight that makes you wish the same.
