A bar and dining area are among the features to be included in Crystal Cruises luxury private jet-style aircraft.

The first images of the interior of Crystal AirCruises’ Boeing 777-200 long range  aircraft were unveiled yesterday by president and chief executive Edie Rodriguez.

The widebody 777 capable of carrying more than 300 passengers will be configured to handle just 84 travellers when it enters service in September 2017.

The seats will fully recline into lie-flat beds measuring 73.5 inches long in a twin aisle configuration.

The lounge area incudes a bar, two sofas and four dining tables, with Michele star-inspired meals prepared in two galleys by a dedicated executive chef.

In-flight amenities include Bose noise cancelling headphones, Apple iPads, free Wi-Fi, 24-inch interactive TVs with on-demand programmes and music.


A live ‘cockpit to ground’ listening channel is to be included together with individual USB ports and power outlets.

The aircraft will run 14, 21 and 28-day itineraries with passengers receiving butler and concierge service while on board.

Details of the Crystal Air Cruises routes and prices have yet to be disclosed.

Rodriguez said: “Crystal AirCruises is not just a thrilling new venture for Crystal but a groundbreaking development in the luxury travel industry.

“Even the savviest travellers and guests who have sailed on our award-winning ocean cruises many times will relish brad new opportunities to explore places impossible to reach by water, all with Crystal’s signature personalized service and the highest standard of luxury at every point of travel.”
