Airline launches three-room suite at cost of £25,000

Sometimes, even travelling first class isn't enough to make you feel like a superstar/mega rich/all-round brilliant person.

Sometimes, instead of just a first class seat (because that's so awful), you need an extra three rooms, which is probably why Eithad Airways has created a 125-square-foot, three-room suite it calls The Residence, available on its Airbus A380 superjumbos.

The suite comprises of a dining area (in case you're entertaining), an en-suite bathroom that includes a shower, and a full double bed. So basically it's a hotel, just in the air, and moving.

Unsurprisingly, the airline, which is attempting to get the title of 'best in the world' is selling this cabin at a premium and will cost £25,557 ($43,000) for some flights.

But fear not, that price is for two travellers and extras include your very own butler, chef and on-ground chauffeur service.

Although does beg the question, if you can afford it, why not get your own private jet? Answers in the comments below.

And if you want the tour of the new suites, take a look at this video of Danni Minogue introducing the whole shebang:
