If the whole concept of your airline/state is "oil money" nothing is impossible.

^what he said.   

There's a sheik that flies to kcle all the time for treatment aboard his personal 747sp.  Oil money keeps 50% of Saudi Arabians at home not working.  I can't wait to see what happens when oil is no longer used like it is today

Seen this suite at the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai last week. It looked beautiful and will definitely set the tone for future premium cabins.

Makes me curios what the next development will be since I'm sure EK has an answer to this ready in a few months

I doubt that. It is an expensive and idiotic gimmick that makes no fiscal sense from a revenue per square unit, which, after all, is what commercial airlines are all about.
This is some nice PR stunt for the Oil Airlines to show off, much like the super tall skyscrapers in Dubai and stuff like that, which also make no financial sense.

Airlines today struggle with their normal First Class products, there is no place at all for a widespread adaption of stuff like this suite business, and certainly not at airlines that have to actually earn money.

Etihad has been doing a lot of idiotic things in the past years, their senseless buying of ailing airlines being the most prominent example, and this stuff is only a consequent extension of this trend.

Oil Airlines are not about making money, they are a marketing vehicle.

Without trying to be offensive, in this part of the world people think money and luxury will make people ignore all the s*** that is going on there, starting from non-existant human rights to 4th world law systems. There's a saying about fast rich people here: "You can get people out of the ghetto but you can't get the ghetto out of the people.".


Everybody who worked with rappers or Russian/Oil Country (or, ok, Russia is an oil country since the 90s, too) rich people knows that saying is simply true.
