Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, unveiled today its new standards for its economic, business and first classes. The company has redesigned completely the concept of the first class for A380 and Dreamliner aircrafts, the flagship of world luxury aeronautics.
As a bonus, the company enlisted the best ambassador in the person of Dannii Minogue. The singer has shot some promotional videos praising virtues of the new Etihad standards. Filled with enthusiasm, Dannii walks through the plane as an amazed little girl while showing us the brand-new first class suites now defined as "apartments".
We learn that passengers traveling in first will have at their disposal all the luxuries one would expect when traveling in a private jet. Something that could crack the facelifts of the most distinguished ladies. The first class will provide to Etihad customers spacious compartments, with high quality leather sofas, jumbo TV and an "exquisite" gold dishes where a butler will serve you the best delicacies.
How it also happens to rich people to be dirty, Etihad offers to its more wealthy passengers bathrooms with a shower larger than a seat in the economy class. Finally travelers may, if they want, convert sofas into comfortable beds. Enough to spend a pleasant flight away from the oppressive hustle of the poors.
Dannii seems to take her role very seriously ... but not too much?
However, you will have to pay the sum of $25,000 (one way) to enjoy all this luxury. Suffice to say that unless you get into debt over several years, the common man will be satisfied with a little less comfort if he wants to go on vacation. We welcome all the same the performance of the company and wish a pleasant travel to all the future passengers.
$25,000 ... even Dannii seems to find the sum a little too much!
