With just six seats in the first class cabin and an exclusive lounge, Oman Air has definitely prioritised exclusivity and privacy. You may be treated to oodles of caviar and champagne don’t book your ticket expecting a private chef. A flight to the UK would set you back £2,395 (approximately $3919). We hear the meals on board are scrumptious. With the longest lie flat seat, an eight point massage system and stowage for your hand luggage, Oman Air’s suites make it to number six on our charts. Complimentary chauffeur driven airport transfers are provided to their patrons.

Caviar service, Michelin starred gourmet meals and award-winning on-board wine programs. These are few of the elements that combine to make Lufthansa one of the top five choices for first class flyers. The recently renovated on-boards cabins are quite a favourite with their expansive spaces and suede walls. To experience luxury at its finest, fly the Boeing 747-400 on the Vancouver – Frankfurt leg which would set you back £2,295 (approximately $3,787). Each seat features a seat as well as a bed combo. With their wine programme, Vinothek Discoveries, you will enjoy outstanding wines which we have selected especially for First Class passengers with the help of Sommelier World Champion and Master of Wine Markus Del Monego.
Fourth on our luxurious list is Etihad, the official airline of U.A.E. If you happen to fly by the middle-eastern airline, you are treated to an enclosed suite entailing a flat bed, a personal mini-bar and a wardrobe. We loved this one especially because you are entitled to a private chef. Etihad’s cheapest ticket costs £563 ($911) for a one-way trip from United Arab Emirates to Mumbai. Tingle your taste buds with the exclusive menu from Mezoon Grill or Taste of Arabia and enjoy hearty entertainment on your personal 23 inch LCD screen.
