Wealth Gap-Luxury in the Skies
This combination of Associated Press file photos show, on top, the first class section of an Emirates airlines Airbus A380 at the new Concourse A of Dubai airport in Dubai, United Arab Emirates in 2013, and on the bottom, Allegiant Air flight attendant Chris Killian preparing his passengers for the Laredo, Tex, bound flight before it pushes back from the terminal at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, in 2013. When Emirates Airline opened a new concourse at its home airport in Dubai last year, it made sure to keep coach passengers separate from those in business and first class. The top floor of the building is a lounge for premium passengers with direct boarding to the upstairs of Emirates’ fleet of double-decker Airbus A380s. Those in coach wait one story below and board to the lower level or the plane. (AP Photo/File)
