Your own private apartment in the sky

We have revolutionised First Class with the First Apartment. More than just a seat, it has a large leather armchair and separate bed of 6 feet and 10 inches. There is even space to walk around after closing the privacy doors.

The First Apartment is upholstered with the finest leather and features a wide armchair and a separate 6-foot 10-inch fully-flat bed.

Six of the First Apartments are interconnecting, perfect for when you’re travelling with a companion. Alternatively you might want to invite your travelling partner to join you in your apartment for a meal or a meeting.

In your apartment, you’ll find a vanity unit with lit make-up mirror.

Change in to complimentary loungewear and hang your suit in a full-length wardrobe.
