The 5 most luxurious onboard airline bars – Cocktails, premium munchings, they have it all

Travelling by air isn’t how it used to be in the 1960’s. And we’re not just talking about the fancy designer kits and spacious private suites. While travellers in coach may be cramped up in their seats, the elite lot are busy rejoicing mid-air in luxury with their fine Dom Perignon and caviar.

Airlines have now stocked up their jumbo jets with swanky new bars offering premium cocktails and aged wines. Throw in a few LCD screens and a spacious lounge area and you’ve got yourself a party!
