FrontRunners: Celestial Cocoon

You are aloft at 39,000 feet in your own fully enclosed first-class suite, with a leather seat that converts to a flat bed and doors that can be closed for privacy. Emirates Airline (www.emirates.com), has finished each of the 12 first-class suites on its A340-500 jets in leather and walnut and installed an advanced in-flight communication and entertainment system with e-mail capability and 500-plus channels to enjoy. You can order meals whenever you like—complemented by your personal minibar—and call anyone anywhere in the world from a handset controller.

Service to the United States is scheduled to begin in late spring.
