AirlineRatings.com recently named Singapore Airlines (SQ) as the best airline in the world for 2019. Passengers can choose from economy, economy premium, business class, first class and suites options.
Looking for privacy? The suites boast sliding doors and window blinds for privacy, along with a standalone bed. First class is another great option, featuring a 35-inch-wide seat that transforms into a fully flat bed.
Additional features offered by SQ include airport lounges and a meet-and-greet service at select airport locations.
Australia’s largest domestic and international airline, Qantas offers luxurious accommodations and perks before even boarding the plane. The Qantas First Class Lounge at Sydney International Airport is deemed one of the best in the world with unique seating areas, an on-site spa, self-serve bar and top-notch, a la carte dining.
If you are looking for a variety of first-class options, Lufthansa might be your best bet. The airline’s luxurious first-class cabins are highly recommended by Architectural Digest for their relaxing, neutral pods. They also feature humidifiers for climate control, bar stations and generous meals prepared by a rotation of chefs.
Premium economy features extra legroom and personal arm rests for every passenger. You are also greeted with a welcome drink and various dining options based on the length of your flight.
Why fly first-class when you can fly upper class with Virgin Atlantic? Leather seats double as flat beds, the longest in any business class. Upper class passengers even receive complimentary pajamas, along with a chauffeur-driven car service to and from the airport.
A list of luxury airlines wouldn’t be complete without Emirates. With 180 destinations worldwide, the airline offers plenty of opportunities to arrive to your destination in style. First-class cabins feature a seat that turns into a bed, along with your own mini-bar. And the first-class bathroom includes a shower for those who wish to freshen up before reaching their destination.
On a budget? There is no need to upgrade to first class to experience the decadence of this airline. Even in economy, travelers enjoy spacious legroom, thousands of channels and free-flowing drinks.
Remember, your next flight doesn’t have to be average. Bypass the cramped seats and live a little in the sky!
