Qantas and Singapore Airlines Leads The Pack In Luxury Air Travel for 2015

AirlineRatings.com has announced the winners of its third annual Best of the Best in luxury air travel, and two airlines – Qantas and Singapore – rose above the rest.

Singapore Airlines introduced their Suites Class, the most luxurious class of flying that is commercially available. With round-trip tickets costing up to S$23,000 (or US$18,400). Features include enclosed private cabins with sliding doors that cocoon you in your own little lap of luxury. The interior was designed by French luxury yacht designer Jean-Jacques Coste and comes along with a plush soft leather armchair hand-stitched by the Italian master craftsmen Poltrona Frau and an astonishing double-bed.

AirlineRatings.com Editor-In-Chief Geoffrey Thomas said that it was “not surprising that Qantas, Singapore Airlines, Air New Zealand, Cathay Pacific Airways, Etihad Airways and the Virgin Group featured so significantly in the Top Ten selections. These airlines are consistently a byword for in-flight excellence and service. They are the trendsetters and the industry looks to what they are doing next.”
