For those who can afford it, or know how to work the points system, flying First Class has never looked so good. From in-suite minibars to virtual windows displaying real-time images, life at 40,000 feet looks pretty swish.

Some new First Class products out there are making our jaws drop. Just what will they think of next? Here are three of our favourite First Class offerings.


1. Emirates

Emirates new First Class suites are nothing short of pure luxury.

The fully enclosed private suits are now available only flights from Dubai to Brussels, Geneva, Munich, and London Stansted but by the end of next year, it’ll be on all brand-new Boeing 777-300ERs.

Each suite has 40 square feet personal space, a first for any airline. There are in-suite minibars, personal temperature zones and mood lighting, and a privacy hatch for meal service.

To ensure all First Class customers have a view, Emirates has even introduced the industry’s first virtual windows for suites located in the middle aisle with the ACTUAL view from outside projected onto ‘the windows’.

Meanwhile, the stitched-leather seating was created in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz and inspired by the automaker’s S-Class vehicles.


2. Singapore Airlines

Singapore Airlines’ new First Class product on the upper deck of its flagship Airbus A380 jumbo jet is so spacious it’ll make your bedroom feel like a closet.

The product is already available on flights from Singapore to Sydney, Hong Kong, Zurich, Shanghai, and London Heathrow while more suites are being installed on the airlines’ new A380s first before being retrofitted onto existing A380s over the next few years.

Each suite has its own sliding door to shut out the A380 crowd, a full-flat bed with adjustable recline as well as the flexibility of coupling seats to form a double bed for couples.

Each suite also has its own 32-inch full HD monitor, customised handbag stowage compartment, amenity box lined with soft leather and mood lighting. To top it all off, there’s a full-sized personal wardrobe in each suite!


3. Etihad


When it’s called the First Class APARTMENT, you’re not wrong to be expecting big things.

More than just a seat, The First Apartment on the upper deck of the carrier’s A380 is fitted with a large leather armchair and a separate bed of 6 feet and 10 inches.

There is even space to walk around after closing the privacy doors.

Six of the Apartments can be interconnected to offer a sense of shared space if you are travelingwith family and friends.

Flying in First class on Etihad not on gives you access to some of the world’s best lounges but also on-demand dining, thanks to a dedicated, on-board chef, private minibars and in-flight showers.
