For most of us, the thought of flying conjures images of long lines, cramped seats and questionable food choices — if we are lucky enough to get some food. But for those who can afford it, airlines are going out of their way to add amenities in their first-class and business-class cabins. New seats, new entertainment systems and a bevy of additional services unheard of just a few years ago are popping up as airlines battle each other for these lucrative customers.
Emirates Airlines offers first class passengers their "own sanctuary" in private suites equipped with a sliding door, mini-bar and its own vanity table, mirror and wardrobe. With a 23-inch television and meals on demand, you might forget you are on an airplane. (Emirates Airlines)
