Well-off travelers can now enjoy abundant luxury while travelling in the Emirates newly launched private jet service. The airline is targeting the wealthy travelers from India, Russia, China, Europe and the Middle East that have shown an increased demand by booking private jet services. Simultaneously, the airline has also launched a website, Emirates Executive, which is specialized for making bookings on this new service.
Two major zones are featured in the Airbus A319 jet which can carry a maximum of 19 passengers. The first zone comprise of an area for executive lounge and dining that is found to the front of the aircraft; up to 12 passengers can occupy this area at once, a work area featuring 4 tables activated mechanically with two large sofas seated around them as well as two LCD screens. Ten private suites comprise the 2ndzone that mainly features options for entertainment during flights with each having an LCD screen and a lie-flat seat; video conferencing, live TV and internet are also available.
The jets also come with bathrooms featuring heated floors and a shower. Passengers can order food from the available menus or ask for tailor-made options. According to Adnan Kazim, the senior divisional vice president of Emirates, the company is looking to tap into the increased demand for private jets as shown in the Chinese, Russian, Indian, European and the Middle East market segments with its newly launched detail-oriented service of top notch quality.
In 2011 Virgin Australia added lie-flat seats to its airplanes and the US all-economy JetBlue class carrier announced the introduction of similar seats in first class seating with an aim of tapping into this promising market. Despite this fact, Qantas made announcement to remove first class seats from all its planes except just a few routes, 3 years ago. The German Lufthansa carrier also followed suite to reduce the number of its planes with first class services. The fact that different airlines globally ferry their first class travelers in different directions can be a good reason for these varying actions.
Moreover, Singapore Airlines increased the length of its beds in first class planes last month, from 203 to 208 cm and introduced new models with fixed backs and curved side panels in shell design. In 2010, the British Airways introduced a new product for first-class services that cost them $176 million.
