FrontRunners: Class Acts

<< Back to Robb Report, April 2008

Cathay Pacific Airways (www.cathaypacific.com) has made a trip from the United States to China much more comfortable—dare we say, even enjoyable. On a first-class flight from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Hong Kong (priced at about $24,000), the seats fold down to create a bed more than 6.5 feet long and 3 feet wide. You can choose from more than 50 feature films and TV programs to watch on an adjustable, 17-inch screen. And the airline provides made-to-order meals, with unlimited caviar, at any time. The seats are equipped with a massage function, to ensure that you are relaxed as well as entertained, rested, and well fed. . . . Oberoi Hotels & Resorts (www.oberoihotels.com) offers a way to see India in style: private, guided tours with accommodation at an Oberoi property at each stop. The 9-, 14-, and 22-day India in Luxury excursions, which range in price from about $7,600 to $17,200 per person, take place on dates that you choose. Destinations include the Taj Mahal, the Jagdish Temple at Udaipur, and Jaipur, the "Pink City of India," rel="nofollow" famous for its ancient pink lime-plaster structures.

Among the property’s highlights is a hot tub perched over the sea…
