The stale air, the cramped legroom, the elbow of the person next to you firmly planted in your ribcage, the feeling of losing your stomach with an elevation loss¦nothing is more romantic that strapping yourself into a seat and putting your life in the hands of a pilot as he guides a plane 50,000-feet above the ground, right?
You could probably come up with a few more romantic ways to spend Valentine’s Day. Clipping each other’s toenails, watching reruns of American Idol, going for a 100-mile run together those are all options that might beat out a trip aboard a conventional airplane. Another option is a trip aboard an airplane that is anything but conventional. Here is how Eos Airlines would like you to spend the big day:
Eos Airlines, which provides superior
premium service to international business travelers by serving fewer
people better, promises to be the world’s most romantic airline (for
one day at least) with special Valentine’s Day flights between New York
and London. For starters, couples will enjoy restaurant-style,
face-to-face dining an amenity available on every Eos flight
throughout the year, because of the airline’s unique cabin
configuration, which features just 48 suites on 757 aircraft
originally designed for 220 passengers. During their flight, guests will
enjoy special amenities including Godiva chocolates, Taittinger
champagne, and long-stemmed roses delivered by the crew. Eos will also
award one free round-trip ticket for a future Eos flight to a lucky
guest on each Valentine’s Day flight.
After dinner, Eos’ attendants will provide turndown service on demand,
as couples settle in to sleep side-by-side in adjacent suites, each
featuring 6’6€ fully horizontal beds, full size down pillows and
comforters/duvets, and Bose® noise canceling headsets. Each suite offers
21 square feet of personal space, and individual aisle access. Plenty of
room for a man to kneel on bended knee, if there was a certain question
he had been meaning to ask!
On second thought, an airplane flight does seem a bit romantic after all. You can even show your significant other how much she is loved by offering her your barf bag.
