Fly from Tokyo to Paris without leaving the ground

Imagine jet-setting from Tokyo to Paris, enjoying first-class travel, a four-course dinner and a city tour — all without leaving the ground. This isn’t a sci-fi fantasy. This is the future of air travel according to Japanese company First Airlines, which has harnessed the power of virtual reality to create dream vacations. Passengers avoid the costly airport transfer, the baggage fees or busy airport terminal — and instead enjoy the perks of business or first-class travel and a luxurious tour of Paris — all while remaining stationary in Tokyo. As well as the City of Light, First Airlines also offers the virtual destinations of New York, Rome and Hawaii. At just 4,980 yen ($46) for business class and 5,980 yen ($56) for first class — these two-hour flights are far more affordable than their real-life counterparts. After boarding, guests can settle down for the two-hour flight on their state-of-the-art Airbus seat — surrounded by decor that mimics the inside of an aircraft, for maximum realism. The menu depends on the destination of choice — Manhattan clam chowder and cheesecake for New York and salmon tartar and onion soup for Paris.
