Crystal AirCruises' luxury jet has dining tables, bar, fully reclining seats

The Boeing 777 offers dining tables and a stand-up bar
Crystal AirCruises' Boeing 777-200LR will offer a sit-down dining area, stand-up bar and lie-flat seats. Crystal's privately owned jet will carry just 84 travelers on adventures of 14, 21 and 28 days, starting in fall 2017.

Airy social spaces, large flat-screen televisions, butler and concierge services and 'Michelin star-inspired' cuisine are among the features.

'Even the savviest travelers and guests who have sailed on our award-winning ocean cruises many times will relish brand 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,' said Edie Rodriguez, president and ceo, Crystal Cruises.

She unveiled the jet's interiors and amenities on Tuesday at the Baccarat Hotel in Manhattan.

The custom 'Crystal Exclusive Class' seats fully recline to lie-flat beds, measuring 73.5 inches long. The lounge features a bar, two divans and four dining tables with seating for six at each. Meals will be prepared by an executive chef in two galleys and paired with a premium wine list.

Among the other creature comforts are Bose noise canceling headphones, Apple iPads, complimentary global Wi-Fi, 24-inch interactive televisions with on-demand programming and music library, individual USB ports and power outlets, and a live cockpit-to-ground listening channel.

Further perks include custom blankets, lumbar and pillows, plush duvets and mattress toppers. The spacious lavatories will be appointed with ETRO amenities, also found on Crystal ships.
