From inflight concerts to inflight showers : 9 ways how airlines woo their premium passengers


Air Malta Sky Spa
5. Air Malta’s Sky Spa – There couldn’t be a more productive way to spend your time on an aircraft than spending it being pampered. Air Malta launches their in-flight massage treatments, for their economy passengers on short flights from Malta to and from Gatwick airport. This includes a hand, neck, and foot massage as they sit back and drown themselves to some soothing music. Did we mention the massages are free of charge? The services are provided by therapists from the Myoka Spas in Malta, who also provide guests with various beauty product samples.

4. Frette linens on Qatar Airways – When your onboard menu consists of dishes conceived by the likes of Nobu Matsuhisa and Vineet Bhatia, your amenity kits come from the house of Armani, headphones from Bose, it’s only befitting that Qatar Airways ensure their business-class guests are tucked into plush Frette linens at bedtime. Estimated to cost over $1,000 for a sheet set, it’s the perfect choice of linen for the “World’s Best Business Class Seat” (Skytrax 2015).

Personal mini bars on Etihad Airways
3. Etihad Airways’ personal mini-bars – So what’s unique about a mini bar? Well, when you cabin is nothing short of a three-room penthouse where guests are seated in Poltrona Frau leather-upholstered seats and ottoman, a 24-inch TV, the well-stocked chilled drinks cabinet stocked with mini bottles of wine and spirits, does not disappoint. There is also a Food & Beverage manager on board who will assist and serve guests a selection of fine, boutique wines.

2. Singapore Airlines’ Wedgwood china – Surely we didn’t expect plastic or tinfoil in first class but when dishing out for the best, Singapore Airlines went all out to serve their first-class passengers in the finest Wedgwood china. This new addition comes after years of serving their guests in Givenchy china as the airline opted for a more regal brand. So now guests can enjoy their lobster thermidor, seafood congee or braised short ribs will look even more delectable.


1. The Emirates Airlines Shower Spa : It was Emirates and their ground-breaking showers onboard the A380 that changed the concept of luxury flying for us. The airline offers two shower suites at the front of the upper deck, one on each side. The shower suites can only be used after making a 30-minute booking with the cabin crew. The suites offer heated floor, a lavatory, Timeless Spa products and a shower room that is well spaced and offer temperature controlled water for up to five minutes. The aircraft carries just enough water to allow its 14 First Class passengers a decent shower.
