We’ve all had this moment: In the slow march to finding our plane seats, we can’t help but look longingly at the business class section behind those mysterious curtains or bulkheads. And as soon as our knees start to hurt from constantly brushing against the seat in front of us, regret starts to sink in. Why didn’t we just upgrade our air tickets to be seated at the front of the plane? Was saving money worth the bruises, back aches and neck pain?
The answer to the last question may vary, depending on your carrier of choice, route, flight duration, type of aircraft, and so on. But one thing’s for sure — the benefits of booking business class tickets go far beyond getting ample legroom.
Having cushy pillows to support your neck and back, and getting warmed by blankets so you can easily doze off, or savouring fine food on china crockery with starched linen serviettes is just the tip of the iceberg. From checking in with ease and waiting to board the plane in an exclusive lounge to choosing from a wide selection of in-flight entertainment, these business class perks certainly make long journeys much more comfortable and enjoyable.
