Virtual Reality has been providing us with almost life-like experiences for decades, from flight and driving simulations to medical training and more recently in PC and gaming devices. This time, however, you can ‘virtually’ indulge in all the luxury and comforts of a First Class cabin flight, without actually having to leave Tokyo.
Called ‘First Airlines’, they provide a service aimed at people from all walks of life, with an affordable yet ultimately extravagant aeroplane experience via Business and First Class seating options, and a 360 degree VR viewing spectacular of several different destinations.
From 6,600 yen, you can select from a number of destinations including two-hour flights to Rome, Paris, Hawaii and New York. Of course, you may wonder how popular this activity really is? Well, the company has been completely booked out since beginning operations back in 2016.
In addition, you can experience a number of other services including a full four-course dinner, in-flight shopping, announcements and demonstrations. Furthermore, this whole package is fully serviced by a complete team of staff (all in training), supervised by actual ex-First Class Flight Attendants.
The company also plans to offer domestic flight destinations in the future, specifically designed with cuisine that is popular within that region. Located in Ikebukuro, we recommend you check out the First Airlines website for bookings, flight information, location details and more.
