Unless you have a private jet, there is nothing more elite than flying in first class and business class.
With the miles we accumulated, I was able to experience both first-hand. There are several instances where our seats have been upgraded through eUpgrade credits and complimentary upgrades (which came with the status).
7 Perks of Flying in First Class and Business Class:
1. Skip the long lines for check-in, security check and boarding
It is a general rule to allot time for traffic and checking in but there are still times when you encounter unforeseen circumstances. The exclusive lines spared us from any inconvenience.
2. Access to airline lounges
Most airlines serve hot meals, snacks, soda, coffee and alcohol. There are also shower rooms.
3. Exclusivity is so distinct, you couldn’t help but feel the prestige
First Class seats are limited. First thing I noticed was the designated entrance for First Class flyers only. There are also exclusive washrooms with fancy toiletries.
4. Reclining seats and spacious legroom
Suddenly, a 12-hour flight doesn’t seem long enough. You can fully recline the seat or adjust the angle and the position. There’s also a turndown service for First Class. Pamper much?
5. Food and drinks are always being served.
You can request for drinks any time. Wine, beer, soda, juice, coffee, you name it.
6. In-flight coat check
I didn’t realize how it important it was until we flew during winter. The thick layer of coat just takes up too much space!
7. Free extra luggage allowance
Great for long vacations. No matter how many times we’ve flown, I can’t seem to pack light. With the extra luggage allowance, I can bring more from my wardrobe.
Pin it for later!
