Transcript for Luxury at 30,000 Feet: Inside the Ultimate VIP Flying Experience
Yeah, well, most of us are used to the tiny seats. No room to move. But imagine have been pretty much unlimited leg room. Elbow room we're talking about, breathing room. Those seats do exist for a price. And Alexander Marquardt, you recently -- did you expense this, I hope? Absolutely. And I expect to travel like this from now on. It was an incredible flight. And no doubt for most of us, air travel is worse and worse. Less personal space. You have to pay for your food and bags. As economy class gets more and more uncomfortable, up in first class, the vip experience is becoming one that most of us can only dream of. Why did you look this way? Reporter: This is how the other half lives. I'll go for the Tom perchampagne. Airlines are taking first class to new heights. It's becoming increasingly competitive. They're all one-upping services. Reporter: On the airway from Abu Dhabi, they're about to day beau a three-room apartment called the residence where a butler attends to your needs. This has never been done before. Reporter: And suites class, a dozen pods with deds. It's around $15,000 and even more. We wanted to experience the suites for ourselves. So the airline gave us tickets to fly from New York's JFK to Frankfurt. Normally if you're getting to the airport like this, you're expecting long lines. But I have a feeling that it's going to be very different on this trip. After checking in, you're whisked ahead of the long, snaking lines at security and then escorted to the plane. Good evening, how are you? I'm good. Reporter: As you settle in, they present you with the goodies. Toiletries. Then the fun begins. Can I have a caviar? A five-star dinner with course after course after course. And once your stomach is bursting, time to slip into your pjs and that famous bed. One of the services that Singapore airlines likes to tout is their tuck in service. Good night. Are you kidding me? That was a little awkward to be tucked in by a complete stranger that wasn't my mother. But shows the length they will go for the top-dollar clients. And I have to say the biggest letdown was landing because we didn't have enough time to enjoy everything they had to offer. A very, very tough -- You might get used to the tuck in. From here on out, that's the way to go. All right. Much more on "Nightline" tonight.
