Several airlines have a separate charter venture, but the Emirate’s new Executive product is unique in that it goes beyond a charter business to offers its best assets in one personalized service.

Emirates unveiled its new ultra-first class charter service today. Emirates Exclusive flies up to 19 passengers on a decked out Airbus 319, an aircraft that can hold up to 124 flyers.

This luxurious jet would be impressive even on the ground and offers so many amenities that flyers might not want to land. The cabin is divided into two sections. The first is a common area with two sofas and six lounge seats that can be configured for hang outs or business meetings.

The second area includes ten private rooms with enough fancy features to best some hotels. Sliding doors close on guests who can sleep on flat beds, snack on the mini-bar, or welcome other flyers in to sit on their visitor’s chair. There’s also Wi-Fi and a screen to view all of the airline’s in-flight entertainment options.

Flyers can freshen up before landing in a complete standing shower complete with towels and spa products.
