sleep­ing quar­ters aboard the klm dream­liner’s new busi­ness class 787

Icarus had been warned but he took to the skies any­way; melt­ing his wings of wax as he flew too close to the sun, plum­met­ing to his un­timely death. Hoary tra­di­tion stands tes­ta­ment to this com­pul­sive ob­ses­sion to fly. But the an­noy­ing ear pop­ping, cramped quar­ters, unimag­i­na­tive food are enough to chal­lenge that as­sump­tion. Not so aboard the KLM Royal Dutch Air­lines, as we found out. The air­craft has ush­ered in rev­o­lu­tion­ary de­sign so­lu­tions that make the ex­pe­ri­ence truly seam­less. Who but roy­alty would un­der­stand the true merit of real lux­ury?

As soon as you clam­ber onto your trans At­lantic flight from Delhi to Am­s­ter­dam, you re­alise that ev­ery one of your needs has al­ready been pre­pared for in an­tic­i­pa­tion, even those that you hadn’t fully ar­tic­u­lated to your in­ner child. Here is what we loved most about the KLM World Busi­ness Class (WBC).
