Although Emirates topped our charts as far as amenity kits are concerned with their Bulgari welcome kits, Emirates airlines gets a modest third spot with its luxury cabins. Each suite comes fully equipped with a personal mini-bar, its own vanity table, mirror, and wardrobe. Granted travellers have access to caviar, Dom Perignon and a set of pyjamas) which every airline appears to be offering), guests are also treated to limousine airport transfers and a premium bar.

2. Cathay Pacific
You just have to shell out £440 ($713) for a first class ticket on Cathay Pacific, though you may have to fly from Hongkong to Taiwan to bag this price. The elite few are served Krug Grand Cuvée champagne and offered an ala carte menu including caviar to choose from. Amenity kits are a prerequisite these days; with Cathay Pacific First Class, men are offered kits designed by Ermenegildo Zegna and women by Trussardi.

Warm-toned natural leather forms the interiors of your spacious cabin boasting a deluxe armchair with padded arm-rests.

1. Singapore Airlines
Unlike most other airlines, Singapore’s national carrier boasts one-of-its-kind private suites on their A380 air-crafts. Instead of the conventional armchair folding out into a bed, the airline has opted for full-fledged beds with a soft underlay, a choice of pillows and a Givenchy-covered doona. Of course, extras like pyjamas and designer tableware is a given considering you are one of the privileged few. Wine-and-dine with a glass of 2004 Dom Perignon and a lavish meal prepped up by Michelin starred chef Carlo Cracco, and watch your most favored sit-com on your personal 23 inch LED screen. Before you start pulling out your credit cards from your Louis Vuitton wallets, ponder over spending £2,053 (approximately $3,324) on a one-way trip from Singapore to Mumbai.
