Airline brand Etihad have just release the world's most expensive airline ticket, costing a staggering £55,000. Wealthy travellers can now experience the ‘Residence Suite,’ with the flight taking off in London and landing in Melbourne. Although there is a mid-way stop in Abu Dhabi, in the Middle East, the affluent guests will be escorted into the airlines first-class lounge, so the luxury treatment will not stop. The ticket price includes other luxury elements including private check-in services, transport to and from the airport by a driver, and access into a private lounge. The cost of the ticket has beaten the previous world’s most expensive ticket, New York to Mumbai, by around £3,000.
The world’s most expensive airline ticket allows you to have entry to a three room suite. The suite, which is 125 square foot in area, is situated on the forward upper deck of Etihad’s A380, and includes a living room, bedroom and an en-suite bathroom. The living room area has a double leather sofa, a 32in flat-screen television and two fold away dining tables. At mealtimes, the food is prepared by a top on-board chef and served by a butler who would have had top training at The Savoy, a five star London based hotel. A private travel concierge is also included to book whatever you may be after, whether it be front row concert tickets, a reservation at a top restaurant or tickets to a major sporting event. Each flight also has a nanny fully trained by the famous Norland College, where Prince George’s nanny Maria was also trained.
Etihad is the first commercial airline to boast a double bed. The double bed in the bedroom section of the suite overlooks a 27in flat-screen television, and the bed covers are made by an Italian designer. Off of the bedroom is a fully equipped en-suite, where guests have a shower, do their make-up in its make-up mirror, and blow dry their hair with its incorporated hairdryer.
