I’ve only been lucky enough to do it a couple of times but there is something incredibly nice about boarding a plane and turning ‘left’. It feels like you’ve made it, it feels like where I belong but at £4,854.00 for a single fair to New York from London, I don’t think I’ll be back there any time soon.
For some people though, it’s a drop in the ocean, and for those people the lovely team at British Airways has, bucking the industry trend, reinvented their First Class cabin.
Inspired by classic British Cars Aston Martin and Jaguar, the hand-stitched leather bound seats now boast a writing desk that doubles as a dining table, a 15″ screen, a USB port for your iPod or iPhone, electronic window blinds and a personal wardrobe.
The only way to fly?
