While many people can barely scrape together enough for a local plane ticket, South Arica’s A-list stars are spending thousands to enjoy travelling in luxurious first class

AKA and Bonang Matheba famously spent R60 000 on return business class tickets for their 2017 vacation in Phuket, Thailand.

It was money well spent!

Travelling in first and business class comes with a lot of perks.

Here’s a look at why Mzansi stars love travelling in style so much…

You can take a shower, like Somizi

Yes, you read right! Some planes offer their first-class passengers the ultimate travelling experience. Not only do they get more leg room than we peasants in economy, but they can also take a shower mid-flight!

“That shower at 35000ft before u land is very crucial… Yazi sizofa. Imagine if the plane had to have an emergency landing. I’m gonna land in the nude. Modimo!!!!” Somizi joked on Instagram.

Relax in a private lounge in the sky, like Amanda du-Pont

Amanda du-Pont’s Emirates flight has an interesting perk – your very own lounge area! We don’t even have leather seats in our apartment living room and here is Amanda relaxing in style thousands of feet in the sky.

“Lounge… In the sky,” she captioned a picture from her first-class experience.

Have a seat big enough for two, like Boity does

One of the perks of flying first class is the comfort of a single seat that is big enough for two, but it’s all for yourself. You don’t even have to sit next to other passengers!

Boity enjoyed her window seat so much, she took a few pictures to remember the moment.
