Entrepreneurs: Is it Useful to Travel Business Class? Published on .

Whether it’s travelling cross-country for client meetings or visiting a supplier, as an entrepreneur, travelling soon becomes part of the job.There’s nothing worse than feeling stressed when travelling, particularly if you’re on the way to an important business meeting. With business class travel, relaxation and peace of mind are part of the package.

Is it useful to travel business class as an entrepreneur? We’ll let you decide.

Service From Your Door

Business-class passengers benefit from the advantages before even leaving the house. Airlines such as Emirates have chauffeur services to ferry you from your home to the airport terminal. You’ll arrive at the airport comfortably and stress-free.

Skip the Queues

When you arrive at the airport, business class flight passengers can utilise the priority check-in desks allowing you to skip long queues and check-in your baggage before some other passengers. What’s more, many airlines offer additional baggage allowances for business class flyers – so if you’re travelling with heavy presentation technology or product samples, you can rest assured that you won’t need to pay extra with increased maximum weight restrictions included.

When it comes to security, some airlines offer fast track security and immigration – meaning you won’t need to stand in lengthy queues prior to boarding.

After a well rested journey, you’ll be one of the first off the plane and receive your checked in baggage, so slow queues won’t hold you back from important business.

Premium Lounges

Premium lounge access comes as part of the deal too, where you’re able to refuel, relax and catch up on some work in peace before boarding. Business class lounge access is available for the whole of your journey, so if you have a connection in between getting to your destination you always have the premium lounge to freshen up, grab a shower or have a bite to eat. Premium lounges really have it all, offering complimentary drinks, private booths, and in some like the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse, mini-spa treatments.

In some lounges, there’s even clothes-pressing services, the perfect opportunity to get your business wear looking smart before landing.

An Opportunity For Business

Believe it or not, flying business class gives you a good opportunity to network. Fellow business class passengers are likely to be flying for the same reasons as you, and talking to someone is a great way of passing time. Why not strike up a conversation in the business class lounge or onboard in the exclusive business class bar? You never know, you might end up meeting your next business partner or client!

Little Extras

Etihad and Emirates are just two of the airlines which offer vanity kits for business class passengers. Use your mini travel kit on board to freshen up before a big business meeting at your destination. Many airlines are known to add in luxury extras such as thoughtfully selected skincare products, luxury pyjamas, slippers, wash bags, eye masks and earplugs.

Time For Work

Work shouldn’t take a back seat just because you’re travelling. With use of the wi-fi services on board, you’ll be able to continue working while you travel – meaning you won’t fall behind on those important emails while you fly. Most airlines provide private power plugs for use of your laptop and other electronic devices. Whether it’s planning a meeting, ticking off your weekly tasks or brainstorming ideas for a new aspect of the business, working in an unusual environment might give you a new perspective on your work.

If you’re thinking that there will be too many distractions on-board, think again. With business class, you benefit from in-flight privacy screens which help eliminate the distractions you might otherwise have when travelling economy. Etihad, Singapore Airlines and British Airways are just some of the airlines which offer noise-cancelling headsets, allowing you to plug in and get started on your work without the interruption of noise.

After your to-do list is ticked off; kick back, relax and recline in your business class seat at the push of a button.

On-board Entertainment

If you want to take your mind off the hustle and bustle of everyday life, take some time to enjoy world-class entertainment onboard your flight. There’s a huge selection of movies and TV shows on-board when you’re flying business class, so it’s a prime opportunity to get stuck into a series and take your mind off everyday work. With HD TV screens on selected flights, choose from thousands of movies, TV shows, music, digital newspapers, magazines and games.

Relax

Travelling across time zones can be tiring. Comfort takes priority when it comes to travelling long distances. In business class, passenger comfort comes first with most long-haul airlines offering recline seats, private suites and lie-flat beds; providing plenty of space for you to stretch your legs, enjoy some personal space and get a restful few hours sleep before arriving at your destination.

Sleeping has been proven to refresh and improve your productivity- so if you’re feeling bogged down with information from running a business, take a nap and wake up in your destination with fresh eyes.

Fine-dining

Business class also gives you an opportunity to indulge in fine dining. Onboard, you’ll be provided with a mouth-watering menu with a world-class three-course meal alongside thirst-quenching beverages. Sip a glass of champagne, treat yourself to a cocktail in the onboard lounge or taste the lavish a la carte cuisine.

Emirates are one of the airlines that offer three-course meals, served on bone china plates, their dining menu oozing luxury. With Singapore Airlines, you can log in online up to 24 hours before the flight to decide on your flight menu. Don’t worry, if you’ve not got time there’s still the option to choose onboard, including more creations from their Michelin-starred culinary board of chefs.

Rack Up Air Miles

 A variety of airline membership programs
As an entrepreneur, you’re likely to be flying frequently if you deal with clients or suppliers abroad. The benefit of this? You can stack up air miles depending on the airline you’re flying with. Collect your points as you go along, which for business class tickets is generally one hundred per cent of the flown miles.

Arrive Ready For Business

After a well rested journey, you’ll be the first off the plane and the first to collect your luggage. If you’re booking into your hotel later in the day, you can always use the business class lounges on the other side to freshen up, take a shower or even use the spa facilities before heading off to your business meeting.
