We’ve asked around to help put together this mini 3-point guide on what exactly should you expect from your first business class flight, and answer if the experience fulfils your wildest dreams?
You will probably have heard of the legendary amenity kit, which ensures that home comforts remain at your fingertips when travelling abroad. This includes commonplace items such as toothpaste and toothbrushes, while there are other accessories that can prove particularly invaluable when travelling overnight on a long-haul flight (earplugs for a restful sleep, anyone?)
This is the type of small but impactful detail that makes business class travel so alluring, while it also ensures that travellers get genuine value for their hard-earned money!
Let’s face facts; the so-called ‘plush’ seats available on business class flights are something that economy travellers often dream about. After all, the typical business class seat reclines and can quickly transform into a make-shift bed, allowing you to remain comfortable at all times while getting some much needed sleep during the trip. This may be the most exciting aspect of business class travel for first-timers, while it is also one that will surely live up to your expectations.
Yes, you heard us right; business class travellers have the opportunity to select their in-flight meal from a menu that would make even fine diners weak at the knees. This is something that can create a huge sense of anticipation prior to boarding your first, business class flight, with a host of freshly cooked foods and a huge range of choice available to travellers.
Compare this with economy class, where the menu is restrictive and the quality of the food renowned for its lacklustre nature!
