Swiss air recently announced their ultra First Class suites screaming of hi-fi luxury. As though in competition, British billionaire Richard Branson announces his luxury airline which is just as filthy rich. Claiming that size does matter, Branson offers a bigger view of everything.
The new airline, V Australia, which flies from Down Under to Los Angeles apparently have the biggest seats, even in the economy section. Compliments have been flowing in from customers pleased with the extra space, but it isn’t just the seating that is new on the plane. Even the bathroom is prepped up with colourful wallpaper unlike the usually bland white walls usually seen on planes. The real luxury is, of course, experienced in the business class section which offers complementary thongs (!), gourmet meals and a seat that is akin to a bed.
The B777-300ER is a Boeing which can carry 360 passengers. V Australia currently flies from Sydney and Brisbane to LA and will include Melbourne in September of this year.
