• Features on the most luxurious airlines

    2010-10-13

    While many airlines have been instituting charges for checked-in baggage or phasing out free meals for flyers, other airlines are upping the ante when it comes to luxury. Travelers on an ample budget may find amenities available on airplanes that they never imagined possible.

    Dubai's Emirates Airlines, for instance, offers private suites on select flights, complete with vanity mirrors, room service, and onboard showers. Not to be outdone, Abu Dhabi's airline, Etihad, offers roomy personal suites with leather interiors.

    Singapore Airlines' trademark is size: its seats measure 35 inches across, and passengers can enjoy watching movies on large, flat-screen TVs.

    Cathay Pacific, a Hong Kong-based airline, offers passengers seats that recline to a fully horizontal position and function as a bed, while providing clients with privacy.

    Aside from luxurious amenities on the plane, many airlines are attempting to make the airport experience as stress-free and pleasant as possible for their clients. Lufthansa offers chauffeur service in a luxury vehicle from the terminal to the aircraft for its passengers. Qatar Airways caters to business travelers by providing a lounge in its headquarters in Doha International Airport. The lounge offers private sleeping rooms and showers for those rushing to a business meeting.
