For most of us the prospect of a 14 hour overseas flight is something worthy of weeks worth of nightmares. Being crammed into a jet full of strangers with no fresh air, food that makes your stomach turn and DVT inducing amounts of leg room is not a pleasurable experience by any means.

For a lucky few though, the flight is almost as pleasurable as the destination, complete with plush beds, mouth watering food and too many perks to have the time to take advantage of. These luxury airlines offer premium services that epitomise the notion of travelling in style.

Sit back, relax, put your feet up, and make sure you add these luxury airline experiences to your bucket list. It’s worth the splurge!
