The excitement of travel is undeniable: tasting new cuisines, taking in incredible sights, waiting on a plastic airport chair in layover purgatory. Well, maybe not so much the last one. But even if you haven't reached your destination yet, some airlines are proving that the vacation can begin long before you set foot on a plane.
Get a look at these extravagant lounges that make those crappy kiosk sandwiches and people talking too loud on their phones seem like they're a whole world away. Bon voyage.
