The moment you walk on board and head to the left, and the nose of the aircraft, you are greeted with a calm lighting scheme and atmosphere. The crew ensure you are very comfortable and all your items are served on a silver tray. Even your pyjamas are served to you on a silver platter. It is a very “English” and old world tradition, yet in a ultra modern setting. Champagne is served and the amenity kit is presented in a signature Anya Hindmarch wash bag.

The New cabin creates a very personal space around your seat and you feel as though you are on a private jet, not a large passenger aircraft.

A full closet has been built into these new First Class seats. I took the opportunity to have my jacket and computers placed in here as well as my shoes. A very clever design idea as there is no need to have these items placed in another closet that is difficult to access.
