Exquisite multi-course meals, designer bedding, and on-board showers make flying these first-class cabins an absolute delight.
Qantas A380 flights travel some of the world’s longest nonstop distances (around 15 hours); naturally, they make sure all those minutes fly by pleasurably. A duvet and sheepskin mattress ready passengers for bountiful R&R on an extra-wide seat-turned-bed, as does a cotton jersey sleep suit. Last year, the airline teamed with Samsung for an experimental virtual reality media system, hinting that we can expect innovative technology from Qantas very soon, alongside their existing 1,500-plus entertainment options. Beloved Sydney chef Neil Perry decides what goes on the menu, with items like spanner crab and harissa tartlets or spiced-lamb pancakes, which can be enjoyed à la carte or as a part of an eight-course tasting menu. qantas.com. —Nikkitha Bakshani
