Best airline for International business Travel
Welcome to Swiss, the simply sophisticated airline, with a seat that has been copied by many airlines such as Brussels Airlines and Austrian Airlines too, proof of the successful cabin they have created. Stepping aboard you feel like you are in a set for the film The Single Man; wooden veneer, deep warm greys and stunning modern design touches make everything feel like they have a place and purpose. Clean dining and drink options match the environment. Whilst there are no bells and whistles to this stripped-back Swiss product, it is consistent, practical and comfortable. The perfect and honest business class for European business travellers. The seating configuration is one of our favourite options right now, providing privacy when you need it and the ability to travel and talk with a partner if you desire, plus it solves the dreaded ‘step-over-a-sleeping-stranger’ manoeuvre for the usual 2x2x2 seating configuration.
9. Etihad Airways
Etihad‘s newest incarnation of their Pearl Business Class seat may have been around for a couple of years now, but it’s still effortlessly beautiful. Wonderful privacy and clean modern lines really make the airline a contemporary business class that the worldly traveller will have come to expect in this day and age. Fine dining, massage functions, fully flat bed seat, and all seats now having direct aisle access are big bonuses, and each one of these boxes are well and truly ticked. Whilst the ‘World’s Leading Airline 2013′ has a lengthy award list, the business class cabin itself hasn’t won any awards for the past couple of years, but we thedesignair.net think the cabin is consistently of award winning quality, and firmly deserves its place in the Top 10 list. Plus secretly thedesignair.net are huge fans of the ‘Humbug’ bedding, super chic!
