How to get an all-new, ultra-modern luxury jet in the skies
A luxury jetliner is a dream for many who are keen on a little something extra in their lives, and it’s now being touted by luxury airline companies.
According to the Hindustan Times, all the major players in the luxury jet space, including Airbus, BA, Embraer, Hindustani Air, Indian Airlines, Jet Airways, Etihad, Lufthansa and Emirates, are offering the A320neo jet for sale.
The luxury jet is designed to be more aerodynamic than a traditional airliner, but the only thing it lacks in aerodynamics is a lot in the way of amenities, which can be a major selling point.
The A320-200 is a multi-role, low-cost airliner, which is designed for long-haul flights with no passengers to board.
It has a maximum take-off weight of about 3,000kg and can carry up to 1,000 passengers, with a maximum cabin volume of 3,800 litres.
Its wingtips are made from carbon fibre, and its wings are made of titanium.
The most impressive aspect of the A321neo is its sleekness, said the Hinds Times.
It features a unique wing design that is almost completely covered by carbon fibre.
That means the wing is almost entirely enclosed in carbon fibre material, and there is no exposed carbon fibre on the underside of the wings.
The carbon fibre also adds some aerodynamic lift to the aircraft, and the aircraft’s winglets can lift a maximum of 10 tonnes.
The cabin of the ultra-luxury jet is spacious, with the cabin of a mid-range airliner offering just 4.2sq m of space.
The cabin is designed with a retractable armrest that can be used as a table or sofa.
The seats are made out of carbon fibre with high-quality leather trim, and a black leather-upholstered armrest with a silver-plated door.
The interior of the plane features a large window with an automatic light that can switch off when the cabin temperature drops below -30C, as well as a central clock that is able to show the time without having to lift the lid.
It is powered by an electric motor that powers a battery that has a lifespan of 500 hours.
The jet can carry between 1,500 and 3,500 passengers and has a range of about 300 kilometres, which allows it to fly to and from major cities in the world like New York, Tokyo and Hong Kong.
