A&K First in the Air with Lie-Flat Seats on Private Jet Journeys

July 31, 2014 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Luxury travel operator, Abercrombie & Kent,will be the first to operate luxury private jet journeys featuring fully lie-flat seats for all passengers from September 2014.

The private jet journeys will be on board a privately chartered Boeing 757-200ER, with 50 custom-designed Italian leather seats equipped with personal massage system, 4-way adjustable headrests and lumbar support and more almost 2 metres of legroom.  Additional seating will also enable each guest to socialise in comfort with their travel companions, while a full privacy screen and extra-high seat back provide undisturbed rest.

“I truly believe – in fact I built Abercrombie & Kent on the belief – that we can provide our guests with an unexpected level of comfort,” says A&K founder, chairman and CEO Geoffrey Kent. “So I’m thrilled that our guests will be the first to experience completely lie-flat, first class seats on our private jet journey around the world this spring. This level of comfort was unimaginable when we introduced the first Royal Air Tour circling the globehttp://www.miceasiaexhibition.com/ in 1989.”

While on board, guests will enjoy a fully stocked, open bar featuring top-shelf wine and spirits, in addition to an on-board chef who will provide personalised, first class meal service. Completing this best-in-class in-flight experience is a flight crew who will travel with the group throughout, attending to every guest’s personal needs and preferences, and helping to make the private aircraft a familiar and inviting home away from home.
