The envious glances we cast towards the First and Business class section of the plane every time we board are set to turn to outright disbelief following reports of The Residence by Etihad. The new seating options set to be made available on the upper deck of A380 aircraft is described as ‘the world’s most luxurious living space in the air’.The space goes beyond mere seating and is more in line with a private suite with a reclining seat, full-length bed, chilled mini-bar, wardrobe and vanity unit. We’ve lived in less well-furnished apartments and have certainly never had access to Savoy Butler Academy-trained staff to help pander to our every whim. The Residence by Etihad suites will accommodate two people. The only stumbling block, other than not wanting to leave the 125sq ft apartment in the sky, is the price tag. Tickets are expected to cost about $20,000 each way between London and Abu Dhabi. Start saving your air miles now.
