Spread across 125 square feet of the A380’s upper deck, Etihad’s extravagant, two-person Residence suite takes in-flight luxury to a new level.

The living area includes a supple, Poltrona Frau leather sofa and 32-inch HDTV.

Savoy Academy-trained private butlers can procure anything you could ask for (in advance)—even specific vintages of Merlot.

Made-to-order multicourse meals (boeuf bourguignonne, anyone?) are whipped up in the plane’s galley.

In the oversize en suite bathroom: a spa-style shower with 60 nozzles.

The extra-long bed stretches 82 inches, with a natural-fiber mattress and custom linens.
