Yes, the expansion of our luxury airline friends (or foes, if you look at it that way) such as Singapore Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, and Emirates has produced innovations that have revolutionized and expanded air travel worldwide. Acclaim from passengers and world organizations have given these luxury airlines fame and fortune that continues to be seen today.
However, with such success comes the pressure of continuing to keep such standards in the long-term future. Will industry juggernauts such as United attempt to challenge the Virgins and SIAs that continue to gain success through first class service? Or will the luxury airlines become something greater (and bigger) that would degrade or improve its services? There are many questions that can be asked about the future of the luxury airlines. These should at least start the discussion.
