Ever wondered which airlines offer the best business and first-class experiences?
Can you imagine flying in premium cabins that will make you forget that you are on a plane in the first place? Wouldn’t it be nice to be surrounded by luxe amenities such as widescreen TVs, lie-flat beds, and delish multi-course meals masterfully prepared by onboard chefs?
If these are exactly what you are dreaming of, here are some of the airline experiences you wouldn’t want to miss:
All Nippon Airways
All Nippon Airways’ business class gives you staggered seats for extra privacy and direct aisle access. The latest first-class seats of the line also include a privacy door together with other amenities such as a selection of premium wines, a sleeping spot in the form of a Nishikawa Air bed pad, and sumptuous Japanese cuisine in partnership with Nogizaka Shin.
Delta Air Lines
The premium product of Delta on international flights, Delta One boasts 180-degree flatbed seats, many of which have direct aisle access. All of them are also outfitted with TUMI amenity kits and Westin Heavenly bedding. 11-inch seat-back screens and 8 inches of additional legroom are also available in the domestic first-class seats.
Emirates’ A380 flights offer widescreen TVs, minibars, onboard lounge access, and flatbed seats. First-class also gets so much better with personal widescreen TVs, personal temperature and lighting controls, onboard shower spa, on-demand dining, and privacy doors.
Etihad Airways provides three premium cabin levels that all feature lounge area access, dining on-demand, and lie-flat seats. The airline shines out the most with its premium seats called The Residence, which is like an apartment in the sky with three rooms and its own private bedroom, separate living area, and ensuite shower.
Guests of Japan Airlines Business and First Class can stretch out comfortably for deep sleep or a quick nap while flying across the Pacific in the fully flat beds fitted with designer pillows and mattresses. Both cabins have sears that allow direct aisle access as well as seasonable Western and Japanese menus served with an exciting selection of spirits and wines.
JetBlue has premium Mint seats on some select Caribbean, Latin America, and coast-to-coast routes. Dining also features rotating small plates that come from some of the top NYC favorites such as Legacy Records, Pasquale Jones, and Charlie Bid. The fully flat seats feature Tuft and Needle bedding, while the mint suites ensure extra privacy thanks to the fitted door.
Flying with Korean Air first-class means large entertainment screens, flatbed sleeper seats, and private spaces. Passengers are also given upgraded wine and food and an in-flight amenity kit from the renowned Atelier Cologne. Passengers aboard A380 can also enjoy a relaxing time sipping over-craft cocktails in the Celestial Bar.
The business class of Lufthansa on long haul flights offers fully flatbed seats as well as an open-plan design that gives the cabin a sense of space. A personal assistant at the destination airport will greet and welcome first-class passengers after they enjoy their flight in temperature-regulating duvets and mattress pads.
