Come Fly Away: A First-Hand Look at Comfort and Innovation in the Skies

As a business traveler, I always seek the best in-flight experiences. In 2023, the aviation industry continues to impress me with new commercial aircraft that combine enhanced passenger comfort, fuel efficiency, and innovative technology. Here are some of my top picks for commercial aircraft to fly in 2023:

Airbus A350 XWB

The Airbus A350 XWB (Extra Wide Body) has quickly become one of my favorites. This long-range, twin-engine aircraft is known for its fuel efficiency, advanced technology, and passenger comfort. The A350 XWB offers a spacious, quiet cabin with large windows, mood lighting, and improved air quality, all adding to less jetlag. As someone who cares about the environment, I appreciate the innovative design that reduces this aircraft’s environmental impact.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a fantastic long-haul aircraft renowned for its fuel efficiency and passenger comfort features. This is one of the flagship aircraft I usually fly on. The unique design includes large windows with electronic dimming, lower cabin altitude, and increased humidity. As a result, I experience reduced jet lag and a more comfortable flight. The Dreamliner’s advanced engines also make for a quieter cabin, which is a big plus.

Airbus A321XLR

The Airbus A321XLR, the newest member of the A320neo family is designed for extended-range flights. This single-aisle aircraft can fly longer routes while offering exceptional fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions. I love the spacious cabin, advanced aerodynamics, and lower noise levels. These features make medium to long-haul trips more comfortable and eco-friendly.

Boeing 777X

The Boeing 777X, with its two variants (777-8 and 777-9), is ready to become the world’s largest and most fuel-efficient twin-engine jet. The aircraft is designed for long-haul flights, featuring large windows, a wider cabin, and improved air quality. The 777X’s advanced engines and aerodynamics, contribute to its lower CO2 emissions. These features make it a great plane for comfort and sustainability.

Embraer E2 Family

The Embraer E2 family, comprising the E190-E2, E195-E2, and E175-E2, represents the next generation of regional jets. These aircraft provide lower operating costs, improved performance, and reduced environmental impact, making them ideal for regional routes. I look forward to the comfortable and efficient travel experience that the advanced aerodynamics, new engines, and redesigned cabin offer.


In 2023, these top commercial aircraft promise to deliver exceptional passenger experiences for travelers. Whether flying short-haul or long-haul, these cutting-edge planes are set to transform the way we travel. I eagerly await the next aircraft fleet that will set a new standard in flight.
