In a world first luxury hotel group Four Seasons will take to the air. With all the luxury of a flying five star hotel the sky is literally the new limit as the Four Seasons Jet becomes the industry's first fully branded private jet experience.
HIGH FLYER: Garuda Indonesia

HIGH FLYER: Air Asia X
Nothing beats a restful night's sleep. Trouble is you pay a whopping price just to get horizontal which means only high fliers with the financial means have benefited from a bed at 35,000 feet - until now.
