QANTAS (Australia’s flagship carrier) was among the first international airlines to fly the super jumbo Airbus A 380, however. Much like Lufthansa or Air France (the only two European airlines to fly the A380), Qantas opted to develop a rather standard First Class cabin, in sharp contrast with the lavish and luxurious cabins of Singapore Airlines and Emirates.
Qantas recently unveiled its luxurious brand new First Class cabin on Airbus A380. Designed by Marc Newson in an understated contemporary style, the 14 individual suites are equipped with electronically adjustable seat with programmable positions and fully adjustable multi-zone massage function. The seat converts into a fully flat bed complemented by a foam mattress, sheepskin overlay and fitted cotton sheeting. Other features include: electronically deployed 17 inch LCD widescreen video monitor, touch screen control unit, leather guest seat and large dining table designed to accommodate two, high quality finishes including Edelman leather and real wood. electronically controlled dual layer window shades, designer amenities, pyjamas, soft furnishings and tableware featuring designs by Marc Newson, Collette Dinnigan and Akira Isogawa.
