A look inside the world's most luxurious passenger jets


If you think you've flown first class - wait till you see these seats.

Etihad Airways is putting the "class" in "first class" - offering commercial passengers their own private residence in the air... complete with a trained butler, gourmet chef and concierge.

The spaces, called "The Residence," will sit in the upper-deck and offer room for as many as two people. Talk about a honeymoon on the way to the honeymoon.

Etihad Airways Unveils World's Most Luxurious Passenger Jets


But it's not just a cozy cabin with a little extra hired help - travelers will get three rooms: a living room, double bedroom and bathroom with a shower so you can figuratively and literally live above everyone - at least for as long as your flight lasts.

The new luxury airlines suites will debut in Etihad's new Dreamliners in October and the new A380s in December. And while we're excited to see the finished product, we're not so sure about the price - which is estimated to be around 20 grand.

Although, an aviation journalist told CNBC, "...the super-luxe three-room suite actually is cheaper than flying the same route in a private plane, so maybe for the bargain-hunting billionaire, the Residence may be just the ticket."

That doesn't make us feel much better.

I guess Greyhound is toying with the idea of selling similar 3 room apartments with a separate door in the back of the bus. Only downfall is in their design plan. The bathroom is the only bathroom on the bus, so you have to allow people into your suite in order to use the restroom. Kind of bizarre.

Really candoauto1 - and for the life of 'em - they STILL can't hit the bowl! May as well just open the door and hope for the best.

Really? That's all you got? That's what you came up with about a luxury airliner. You only got an idiotic statement about the President? Really? Get a life!

Most of these comments are so ridiculous. A country in the middle east has a new business model for selling overpriced airline seats and people on this site are getting their shorts/panties in a bunch and it has nothing to do with them. Unbelievable.

IDIOTS
ETIHAD IS A PRIVATELY HELD ABU DHABI BASED AIRLINE.
Nothing to do with President Obama, the homeless or any other warped, angry, rantings you may have. I can never figure out why every story on here, no matter how remotely related to politics, brings out all the IDIOTS with stupid, ignorant comments.
The story is about an airline offering Suites to their First Class passengers. Some of us work hard for our money & prefer to spend it any which way we like. Guess who supports the homeless & all you section 8 morons out there with our taxes.
If you don't care for our Gov't the go live the hell in Russia or China. But stop posting your ignorant, moronic rants on these stories. No one cares how you feel.

Good point Rick, the level of ignorance expressed here sometimes is amazing. Funny enough the buffoon has a computer and could not check his pathetic fact.

Free speech is great...even when it enables half-wit, red necks can say any kind of inane/insane incredible crap like "Obama is muslim." Even as a half wit, you probably have as many brain cells as teeth!

So this is how they spend their oil money? 7 Star Hotels and a life of luxury at our expense.

Isn't America supposed to be getting Iraqi oil? After that manufactured war, we should be drowning in oil.

Oh well, frack it!

Brenda, this is why "THEY" lied about the WMD's that did not really existed. There was one GOAL in the Iraqi war, that when WMD'S were proven NOT to exist, "THEY" had to change their motives in going to war with Iraq by declaring "LIBERATION" of the Iraqi people from the dictator Saddam Huessin. That goal was the ABUNDANT OIL IN IRAQ. That's when Cheney's Halliburton oil digger went into action.
