WARNING: Looking At This First-Class Cabin Will Make You Hate Coach Even More.

At $38,000 for a one way ticket from Mumbai to New York City, Etihad Airways is where you'll find the most expensive scheduled commercial flight in the world. The journey includes a stopover at Abu Dhabi.

As national carrier of the United Arab Emirates, Etihad has broken its previous record of $32,000 for a ride in what many are calling the 'penthouse in the sky.'

With this ticket, you will be escorted to a private luxury suite — a three room private cabin — called The Residence. You'll have more than enough leg room in your bedroom, shower room, and lounge area. You're also assigned a personal butler.

The experience is available on Airbus A380, a double decker and the world's largest passenger airliner. Economy and business class seats are also available, and they appear to be an upgrade from your average airline experience.

Singapore Airlines launched their use of the Airbus A380 in 2007, and in 2014, Etihad Airways launched theirs.
