Proffering a fantastic flight experience to the business class travellers is the Virgin Atlantic flight between London and New York.

Kulula Airlines – Enjoy Good Humour

Kulula Airlines

Kulula Airlines is one of the must-book airlines in the world and that too, for an odd reason. This South Africa-based airlines is known for its witty sense of humour. And yes, for their light green airplanes as well that are quite appealing to the eyes. But more than that, it’s the sense of honour which can be seen on the planes and even in announcements. The jets at Kulula Airlines are decorated with some cheeky labels and related phrases like ‘this way is up,’ ‘flying 101’, ‘the big cheese,’ and more. Not just this, their cabin crew is also humorous and give instant quip. Do not be surprised if you hear instructions in their signature style.

Ok, let’s spill some beans by telling you some of their instructions which are – “please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened while the captain taxis what’s left of our airplane to the gate” and “please note we do not accept unwanted mothers-in-law or children.”

So, these are some top airlines that you must, and again I say must book a ticket with for that out of the world experience.
