Today, an international First Class ticket comes with a private pick-up, surely a black car, windows tinted and smelling of fine leather; the daily newspaper neatly folded and waiting on the heated back seat.
At the airport, save for the Customs & Immigration queue, you are at the front of every line, seeing every smile – even as they tag your robust collection of luggage, way over and beyond the allowable weight limit of those travelling in coach.
In the Departures Lounge, a discreet, heavy door down a barely marked corridor leads to the airline’s exclusive First Class Lounge, where you’re greeted by name and reminded you’ll be found when it’s time to board, and to make yourself at home.
You are first to board, and later, first to exit. You are no longer just a number but a number with a name, and it’s used again when you’re offered your flute of champagne before take-off.
In the air, you’re as connected as you were in the office, interrupted only by another smiling face as your Butler unravels a four-course chef prepared meal on crisp linen tablecloth. Restaurant-quality meals are accompanied by sharp wines carefully chosen to awaken deadened taste buds at 35,000 feet.
While you get ready for bed, your bed is readied for you – almost seven feet of double-bed goodness awaits and it’s lights out.
When you drop $38,000 on a one way ticket between New York and Mumbai in Etihad’s three-room masterpiece suite dubbed ‘The Residence’, you expect and deserve service to match. That service shouldn’t start with that black pick-up car but when you’re actually buying the product, and these types of fares aren’t booked quietly and alone online.
