Tips for first and business class airline travel

  1. Many of the top airlines are now offering fully lie-flat sleeper seats in their business class section. This used to only be available in first class. If you are flying with carriers like Air New Zealand, American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Delta Air Lines, Singapore Airlines, and Virgin Atlantic the business class product offers a lie-flat sleeper seat on most international flights.

  2. Learn the difference between angled lie-flat and full lie-flat seats. On some carriers lie-flat is a straight sleeping surface, but not fully reclined. Some passengers complain about sliding off of these types of seats. Go for the fully lie-flat sleeper seats whenever possible. Ask our premium class reservation agents which type of seat is offered.

  3. The airlines known for the most comfortable international first class seats are ANA, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Gulf Air, Japan Airlines (JAL), Qantas Airways, Qatar Airways, Sinagpore Airlines, South African Airways, Swiss, TAM Brazilian, and Thai Airways.

  4. The airlines known for the most comfortable international business class seats are Air New Zealand, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines, South African Airways, and Virgin Atlantic.

  5. Some other notable first class products are offered by American Airlines, Asiana Airlines, Korean Air, LAN Airlines, Lufthansa, and United Airlines.

  6. Domestic and regional flights on many carriers have a very different premium product than the long-haul flights. Be sure to confirm the seat type with our agents prior to confirming your premium ticket.

  7. Many people ask what the difference between international business class and first class really is? Normally first class offers a much better seat, upgraded food, better inflight entertainment systems, and more personalized service. But business class on many carriers is an extremely nice offering, and available frequently for extensive savings over first class.

  8. Some of the highlights of business and first class cabins nowadays include soft leather seats, adjustable tables, vanity mirrors, personal closets, personal reading lights, interactive video on demand libraries, lay-flat sleeper beds, fresh linen, fluffy pillows, plush duvets, turndown service, designer sleepwear, large LCD personal monitors, surround sound, massaging seatback, laptop power supply, built-in office software, CD collections, world-renowned panel of chefs dining, superb wine selection, designer tableware, Dom Perignon, Krug, 2nd growth Bordeaux, and anytime snacks. It is like a mini-luxury hotel in the sky.
