This is probably the ultimate in luxurious jet travel at the moment, and it's designed for two people traveling together.

THE NEW FIRST CLASS
One of these days, I'm going to book this just because I want to see what a truly amazing inflight experience is like in 2014.
I've flown First Class on different airlines -- and I even sat next to super singing star Fergie at the height of her popularity, on First Class on Japan Airlines from New York JFK to Tokyo Narita not too long ago.
But I've never done the two-passenger private compartments before. These must be wonderful.

ONE MORE FOR MY NEVER-ENDING BUCKET LIST
This is going to go on my bucket list.
The latter is already on my bucket list, just waiting to be scheduled properly in my never-ending Travelife.
As for these Etihad First Class The Residence suites, they will initially be available on flights from Abu Dhabi to London, New York and Sydney.
WHAT'S IN A THREE-ROOM
SUITE IN THE SKY
For one thing, it's a three-room suite in the sky, with a living room, a proper bedroom, and an ensuite bathroom. The living room has a Poltrona Frau leather double-seat sofa, two dining tables and a 32-inch flat screen TV.
It's practically a suite in a luxury hotel, although tailor your expectations accordingly as the total floor area for one of these suites is about 11.5 square meters. That's palatial by the standards of current economy and business class, but of course it's not exactly the presidential suite of a five-star deluxe hotel.
MORE LIKE A LUXURY TRAIN

I've taken these both and they're wonderful old-fashioned experiences.
As for Etihad's The Residence, I am definitely going to book this for one day, in my never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
