One of the best parts about having expendable money has to be flying in style. Being on a plane can be brutal — especially when traveling internationally — but a queen-sized bed, personal shower, or butler could definitely turn that experience around.

10. British Airway's first class cabin on the 787-9 Dreamliner features a 23-inch display screen that's controlled with a touchscreen remote control located in the seat console.

Each seat also has two USB ports and a personal locker that comes with a mirror for in-flight touch ups. A one-way ticket from London to New Delhi will set you back about $5,000.

9. The first class cabins on Japan Airline's Sky Suite 777 have Woodgrain interiors and are closed off from the rest of the plane for added privacy. You can book a flight with the suite next month, but until then there's no word on price.

Not only does the private suite turn into a cozy bed, but it comes with a 23-inch LCD monitor also. There's also space for luggage and a power socket so you can charge your devices.

2. This bed on Singapore Airlines may actually be better than most at-home mattresses. The beds are 35 inches wide and 82 inches long on select aircrafts and have an additional mattress topper to make them extra comfy.
