Crystal announced its latest innovation, Crystal AirCruises, a few months ago. Now Crystal has shared the designs for the first Crystal AirCruises aircraft, and we think this innovation is going to change the way you - and the rest of the world - think about luxury travel.
Ultra Luxury Cruise Concept, but Traveling by Air
In fall 2017, Crystal’s acclaimed luxury travel experience will elevate to new heights with Crystal AirCruises. It's so elegantly obvious, how did no one think of this before? A jet that transports just 84 guests (compared to the usual hundreds of passengers on a 777) to itineraries that include the world’s most exotic and remote locales. Like Crystal's legendary luxury ocean cruises, AirCruises offer guests first class accommodations on 14, 21- and 28-day global itineraries.
Crystal’s privately owned Boeing 777-200LR is currently being customized to meet this new exclusive way to travel. The jet will boast plush, fully reclining Crystal 'Exclusive Class' seats, airy social spaces, large flat-screen TVs, Crystal’s famous butler and concierge services and Michelin Star-inspired cuisine.
Better than Private Jet Travel?
Crystal’s Boeing 777-200LR is larger and more spacious than any private jet travel option, appointed with features that make you think less of a private jet, more of a luxury hotel suite. The custom Crystal Exclusive Class seats fully recline to lie-flat beds, measuring 73.5 inches long, for maximum personal space and ergonomic comfort, while the expansive social lounge with stand-up bar, two divans and four dining tables with dedicated seating for six guests foster friendly camaraderie among luxury travelers. Cuisine will be prepared by a dedicated executive chef in two state-of-the-art galleys and paired with an elegant premium wine list.
Guests will also enjoy creature comforts and conveniences including Bose® Noise Cancelling headphones, Apple® iPads, complimentary global WiFi, 24-inch interactive TVs with on-demand programming and music library, individual USB ports and power outlets, and a live cockpit-to-ground listening channel. Custom blankets, lumbar and pillows, plush duvets and mattress toppers – as well as spacious lavatories appointed with ETRO amenities – offer more than the comforts of home during the global journeys.
Even the savviest travelers and guests who have sailed on Crystal's ocean cruises many times will be eager to experience this brand new way to explore places impossible to reach by water, all with Crystal’s signature personalized service and the highest standard of luxury at every point of travel.
