DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Abercrombie & Kent will be the first to operate luxury private jet journeys featuring fully lie-flat seats beginning in the fall of 2014. All of A&K's private jet journeys will now feature a privately chartered Icelandair Boeing 757-200ER with 50 custom-designed Italian leather seats equipped with a personal massage system, 4-way adjustable headrests and lumbar support, and a fully lie-flat bed more than 6.5' long (79" pitch). Additional seating enables each guest to socialize in comfort with their travel companions, while a full privacy screen and extra-high seat back provide undisturbed rest.
"I truly believe – in fact I built Abercrombie & Kent on the belief – that we can provide our guests with an unexpected level of comfort," says A&K founder, chairman and CEO Geoffrey Kent. "So I'm thrilled that our guests will be the first to experience completely lie-flat, first class seats on our private jet journey around the world this fall."
Travellers will have another opportunity to experience this extraordinary plane on Wonders of the World by Private Jet, which will whisk guests from Machu Picchu to Easter Island, Angkor Wat and Istanbul. Under ordinary circumstances these places would be difficult – perhaps impossible – to visit on a single itinerary. But this journey brings all of these inspiring experiences within reach, while the small group size allows for an itinerary packed with exclusive, invitation-only events.
