Pray for Delays


Whenever I am waiting for a plane at the airport, I find myself wishing I could use the extra time to get a manicure. Well, lucky first-class travelers in Sydney now can.

Meet the luxurious new first-class lounge for Qantas airways designed by Marc Newson and Sebastian Segers. The 20,000-square-foot space features a restaurant, day-spa services, a vertical garden with over 8,000 plants, and a fully stocked library/entertainment zone with plasma TVs. It's basically a five-star hotel without the beds.

Spa services are free for first-class customers and will include private marble shower suites, stocked with Kevin Murphy hair products and Payot Cosmetics.

Wow, it's a cool design. I bet it costs a fortune to join though.

I just saw the article about this. Isn't it fabulous! I've never been to Australia but I might have to go now just to check out the lounge!

Yes, this seems like a destination in itself.

Wow, what an airport lounge! Um, I would probably end up hanging out for too long and miss my flight :) Great post!

I just stumbled upon your site and I love it! I'm an Atlanta resident, too, and I love your local stuff. Great pictures, and obviously great taste.
