5 First Class Facilities That You Enjoy on the Ground

5 First Class Facilities That You Enjoy on the Ground Published on .

When you think of first class you probably picture yourself drinking champagne in the sky, or reclining in oversized seats, and while these things are some of the perks, a lot of the best features of first class are found on the ground.

When you book business class flights or upgrade to first, the experience begins as soon as you leave your house, with various airlines offering all manner of services to ensure your trip is as smooth and comfortable as possible. Here are just some of the extras you could enjoy.

Great Service Without Hidden Extras

One of the problems of booking through budget airlines is that you end up with a lot of hidden extras. When you upgrade to first or business class, the price includes extras such as:

  • A generous luggage allowance
  • Seat selection
  • Fast track security passes
  • Meals and drinks
  • Dedicated check-in

This means you aren’t spending money on the basics, and once you get to the airport, you can beat the crowds and enjoy a premium service on the ground.

Chauffeur Services

Sick of trying to find parking at the airport or dragging your suitcases on the tube? A handful of airlines now offer chauffeured transfers, with Virgin Atlantic offering a fleet of sleek town cars to pick you up at home and get you to the airport in plenty of time.

If you live within a radius of 75-miles of the airport, (please check details) a suited and booted chauffeur turns up to help you with your luggage, and on your return, someone is waiting to whisk you back home while you relax.

Lounge Access

Lounge access can often be a pricey extra, but regular travellers will know how it’s worth avoiding the crowds and slightly dodgy airport food. Book cheap business class flights through airlines such as Emirates, and lounge access is included in the price, which means you can escape to a quiet part of the airport, enjoy delicious complimentary food, or have a cocktail or two before you fly. Some airlines even have spa treatments available to get you lovely and relaxed before you board.

Priority Boarding

One of the most stressful parts of flying is the scrum to get on board, find your seat, and get your hand luggage stowed away. First and business class passengers get priority boarding on most airlines, and usually get their luggage first on the carousel, so you can avoid the chaos.

Choose Your Meal in Advance

For some travellers, the highlight of first class is the dining experience, which means you can enjoy restaurant quality food in the sky, without a plastic fork in sight. Singapore Airlines is one airline that lets you book your meals up to 24-hours before you fly so you can ensure you get the dishes you love, whether it’s lobster thermidor, sushi, or roast lamb. Choosing your dish gets you excited for your flight and means even picky eaters can have something they enjoy.
