Business and pleasure go well together. Signed, the business class seats.
Vacation. You can already feel the breeze blowing down your freshly tanned skin. The water of the ocean cooling you down, the waves crashing, making their own special music. Splendid aquamarine view with crystal clear waters – surreal. Or maybe you dream to visit the biggest, most beautiful cities you’ve always heard about. All that rush, the buzz of endless, fun nights. Better yet, maybe you plan a journey around the world just like in Jules Verne’s famous novel. Luckily, unlike the main character, Phileas Fogg, you have a better mean of travel: the airplane.
Although the plane is by far the fastest, most efficient way of transportation, depending on where you fly, your journey can take up to 15-20 hours. Sounds absolutely tiring. For an adult, especially the taller ones, the legroom is never enough. Also, being squeezed into a window seat can be a nightmare, providing restricted access to the aisle and of course, the toilet. Privacy is something that you can forget while flying long hours, there will always probably be someone in your personal space.
