A new super-luxurious plane service is set to give Emirates a run for its money when it launches next year.
Boasting a Michelin-star inspired menu with a proper fine-dining room, bar and a butler service, it’s no wonder it is being heralded as the most luxurious commercial jet in existence.
The US-based travel company Crystal unveiled its privately-owned Boeing 777-200LR plane that will host the AirCruises service, seating a maximum of 84 people.
To give you a sense of how much space that means for each passenger, a typical 777-200 carries more than 300 passengers.
Its first-class seats will contain fully reclining flat beds from which you can watch a large flat screened televisions with Bose noise-cancelling headphones while perusing the net using free global Wi-Fi.
Its spacious dining area will include leather seats, fine porcelain and crystal glassware. A selection of fine wines is planned for its bar.
Passengers will be given five-star treatment with on-board butlers and the menu will contain Michelin-star quality meals, inspired by local cultures, tastes and traditions.
Itineraries of 14, 21 and 28 days will be available from a “curated collection of global journeys” with stays up to three days in each exotic location.
Tickets, of course will be priced accordingly – hovering around the $65,000 mark.
he new plane is part of Crystal Cruises expansion into luxury experiences beyond cruise ships.
