Domestic flying might not be as luxurious as it was once upon a time. People no longer don their Sunday best and behavior in the airports and on planes can at times rival what you’d see on The Jerry Springer Show. There are some experiences, however, that take luxury to the next level. These are some of the world’s most luxurious commercial flights, where the price of a ticket can be equivalent to the cost of a car. Here you’ll get your caviar wishes and champagne dreams.

Etihad The Residence

Etihad Airways (The Residence)

The Residence tops the list in terms of cost and luxury. This is a private suite that takes up the entire front section of the Airbus A380 (it measures 125 square feet). Etihad‘s offering features a living room, a separate bedroom, and a bathroom with a shower. The ticket includes a personal butler, a private chef, and access to the Etihad First Class Lounge. This ticket can run up to $38,000 one way.

Singapore Airlines Suites

Singapore Airlines (Suites)

Another luxurious option is Singapore Airlines‘ Suites. These can cost up to $23,000 one way. The suites offer a private cabin with a full-sized bed, a 23-inch TV, and a personal wardrobe. Passengers also receive complimentary pajamas, an amenity kit, the ability to “Book the Cook” and choose from a wide variety of meals, as well as access to Singapore Airlines’ First Class Lounge.

ANA Suite

ANA (The Suite)

Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) wows travelers with its new suite on the Boeing 777-300ER. These suites have doors, three windows each, and 43-inch TVs. You’ll get a great meal, pajamas, an amenity kit, and exemplary service onboard. Tickets can cost up to $19,000 one way.

Emirates First Class

Emirates (First Class)

The Emirates First Class Suite on the A380 costs up to $14,000 one way. This suite offers a private cabin with sliding doors, a personal minibar, and a 32-inch TV. Passengers also receive complimentary pajamas, a Bulgari amenity kit, and access to the Emirates First Class Lounge.

Lufthansa First Class

Lufthansa (First Class)

Lufthansa offers a refined and relaxing First Class cabin. It includes delicious meals, pajamas, an amenity kit, and access to the First Class Lounge (in Munich or Frankfurt) or First Class Terminal when you’re in Frankfurt. Not to mention, there is truly something special about being driven to and from the plane (as Lufthansa offers passengers in its hubs). A new seat (pictured above) is rolling out in 2024. Tickets cost up to $14,000 one way.

Four Seasons Private Jet

Four Seasons Private Jet

For those who prefer more of a private jet experience, there is the Four Seasons Private Jet. This luxury aircraft has room for 48-52 passengers and offers a customized itinerary to destinations such as Bali, Sydney, and Serengeti. The price for a trip on the Four Seasons Private Jet starts at $147,000 per person.

Anthony’s Take: While these flights may not be affordable for most of the population, they offer a taste of true luxury travel. From private butlers to full-sized beds, these flights offer an experience that is worth the hefty price tag for those who can afford it (or are able to redeem miles for some of these incredible flights).
