Who Is The "First" In First Class???

You tell me.

Sure every airline offers first class but what would it take for you to spend the extra thousands of dollars on a single ticket?  For me at least, I am going to need a full on suite with a butler to make it worth it.
Oh wait, that exists!

Here are the airlines that are taking “first class” above and beyond!

Does it surprise you that the first on my list is an airline of the United Arab Emirates?  These nations are pros when it comes to luxury!
This December they will reveal their new Residence Class on its Airbus A380 and Boeing B787 Dreamliner aircraft.  
Lie flat seats are now a thing of the past; welcome to three-room apartments living in the sky.  The suites feature a private bedroom, a living room and en suite shower at a mere $40,000 per roundtrip ticket. 
If you are not ready to shell out that kind of money you can scale it down a bit by booking a First Apartment which is a private suite with a full bed, reclining ottoman and access to a bathroom with a shower.  
Don’t worry, if you fly the First Apartment you will still have access to your own minibar but you will have to get the drinks yourself.
The Residence comes with butler service, concierge, chauffeur and private chef.

It is nothing new when I say that Emirate Airlines has always been the first when it comes to luxury flying and now they are taking it one step further.  
They plan to launch a private, on-board residence that comes equipped with a personal minibar, adjustable lighting, private vanity table, and mirror and wardrobe.  
Services include a “shower spa” treatment, turn down service and award-winning food.

Their newest addition is called La Premiere cabin and these are mini-suites that are only available on the Boeing 777-300 aircraft.  

They feature lie-flat seats that adapt to each passengers body, a 24-inch HD screen and a private wardrobe with adjustable privacy curtain.
And if you have a guest visit you in flight they can relax on the reclining ottoman.
The kicker here is that Air France has teamed up with a slew of Michelin-rated chefs to design the “exclusive” menu.

As standard the lie back seat is offered with this airline but have you ever experienced a first class “pod”?  They are super roomy, taking up the same amount of space as four economy seats. 
 And Qantas does not believe in regular mattresses, they will set you up with a sheepskin one or instead just get a massage from your chair and slip off to dream land.  For much longed for extra privacy passengers crave you can use your fancy privacy screen to divert the peering eyes from your comfort zone.  
But where they draw you in is in the food.  
No one like airline food but we eat it because it is “free”.  Well, the Australian Chef Neil Perry collaborated with Qantas and created a 5 star menu to fill your belly in flight.  You can go a la carte or enjoy an eight-course tasting menu and also a wine pairing is available too.
