The Residence Flight on Etihad Airways

This Insane £23,000 Flight Includes a Private Bedroom, Living Room, and Butler

The Residence experince from Etihad Airways puts the first-class flight you have in mind to shame. Nearly 500 passengers can fit on the A380 commercial aircraft, but the 10 guests of The Residence get to experience a different level of luxury. Frequent flier Sam Chui recorded his entire flight, which showed his personalised travel experience complete with a welcome letter and menus addressed with his name. In addition to having three of their own private rooms, each guest also gets their own butler for all their travel needs.

The bedroom features a double bed equipped with Italian bed linens and designer sleepwear. Guests can enjoy caviar served on ice, lobster tail, or anything else from the in-flight chef's offerings from the comfort of their own bed. Take the hallway down to the living room for some TV or take a shower in the private bathroom that already has Italian toiletries waiting.

Though Sam's flight was a quick two and a half hours, a typical Residence flight from New York to Abu Dhabi costs over £23,000! The accommodations do fit up to two people, however, and it isn't much more to add a second passenger to your experience. But still!
