Flying With Class

Just read an article on Yahoo Travel the about the top 10 best airlines in the world. Now granted I don’t fly internationally very often--and when I do it’s certainly not first class--but boy have I been missing out! Judging by these photos I don’t even want to know what a first class ticket costs on one of these. And since I didn’t hit Powerball jackpot all I can do is dream…
Here are their top 3:

No. 1 Singapore Airlines
The Suites / First Class Cabin of Singapore Airlines come with your own bottle of Dom Perignon 2000 champagne to enjoy throughout the flight. Attendants escort you on and off the plane; then someone meets you at the jetway and whisks you away on a buggy to a "VIP Customs" lounge where your bags are retrieved for you and put in a waiting car to get you to your final destination.

No. 2 Air New Zealand
What is cool about Air New Zealand is that they Premium Economy Seating.  Although not quite first class, the seats are fixed shell design so that no-one can invade your space and each have 10.6-inch TV screens and bag-style footrests. The design allows travelers to slot tray tables together. As an added service they’ve added in-flight concierges who can assist passengers with making flight arrangements, adjusting itineraries, scheduling issues with weather disruption and managing frequent flyer miles all while in the air!

No. 3 Emirates
Emirates First class suites gives great privacy when sleeping; the configuration allows you to get into just about any position you need to work or relax on the mattress and duvet with turndown service.  A ton of new release movies are at your fingertips with food and drink on demand.
