Etihad Airways Offers a First Class Apartment in the Sky

First class seating not enough for you?  If you fly Etihad Airways, you’re in luck.  The UAE-based airline has outfitted its A380 class flights with a unit it calls “The Residence”, a one-bedroom apartment in the sky.  The 125 sq. ft. unit features a living room, a bedroom and a full bathroom with shower for transcontinental travelers.  Not just any traveler can fly in The Residence, however, as the cost to fly in First Class’s best will be about $20,000 for a one-way flight from Abu Dhabi to London.

Guests in Etihad Airways “The Residence” aren’t just treated to a comparatively-large amount of aircraft space, they’re also provided their own private butler.  This isn’t just a glorified flight attendant either, it’s a butler trained at The Savoy in London.  So while you’re kicking back with a book, watching a movie or joining the mile high club in your own private bedroom, you can always buzz the butler for a refill on whatever it is you’re sipping.

In terms of brand-name commercial jet air travel, it doesn’t get more luxurious than this.  For $20,000, however, you might consider chartering your own flight.  If you have this kind of money, we imagine the decision isn’t much of a problem.
