Etihad Airways

The closest you'll get to a private jet experience on a commercial airline, Etihad's The Residence offering takes the notion of first class to a whole new level. After being chauffeured to the airport in a luxury car, passengers are greeted with a private check-in and lounge while every detail is taken care of by Etihad's VIP travel concierge. Upon boarding the plane, guests will find not just a private room but their very own three room suite with bedroom, lounge and bathroom. Designed for two people, the lounge features a double leather sofa and 32 inch television while the bedroom boasts a six foot double bed and a further 27 inch television as well as an ensuite bathroom with full-height shower, luxury amenities and bathrobes.

All needs are catered to throughout the flight by a Savoy-trained dedicated butler on hand to deliver drinks and meals prepared on request by Etihad's highly-skilled inflight chef. The airline also offers VIP passengers a lifestyle concierge service able to book event tickets, make restaurant reservations and much more in your chosen destination.

A return flight on board The Residence between London and Abu Dhabi starts from £10,950 for one person or £16,530 for two people.
