Whether you’re heading off to Europe, the Middle East, or Southeast Asia for your next adventure from New York, you’ll want to choose an airline that offers the most comfortable seats and amenities for the long-haul flight. Many airlines are earning awards for their world-class service, on-time flight schedules, and in-cabin perks that will make your flight that much more enjoyable. Here are some of the best international cabins to fly when departing the United States from New York:
Virgin Atlantic Premium cabins are designed to enhance your flight experience with some extra touches. Not only do you get some extra leg space, but you can enjoy a glass of champagne as you board and a well-prepared meal served on china with silverware — not paper plates and plastic forks. Premium cabin passengers also get to skip the lines at the airport with priority boarding privileges and, if boarding an overnight flight, will pick up an amenity kit in a smart wallet that provides all the essentials you need to get a good night’s rest.
When you’re flying to destinations in southeast Asia, book your flight with Singapore Airlines and settle in to one of the luxury Suites. This is one of the few airlines in the world that offers private, individual cabin space. These cabins were designed by French luxury yacht designer Jean-Jacques Coste so they’re designed for comfort and aesthetic appeal. Cabins feature a sliding door and window blinds for increased privacy and seats can be converted into a double room for extra comfort.
When trips to the Middle East are on your radar, unwind in your Private Suite or freshen up before landing in the A380 Shower Spa. You’ll get the VIP treatment when flying First Class and can enjoy amenities including the ultimate lounge bar during your trip. The Boeing 777 First Class Suite offers a completely enclosed suite with temperature controls, mood lighting, and super-soft leather seating.
