9. Air France
Air France’s La Première cabin looks more like a lounge in a house or office rather than on an airplane. The space in their first class section is open, with lots of room to walk around when you’re allowed to. If you feel like you need more privacy, you can close off your area with a curtain and rest your feet on the ottoman that comes with your seat. Plus, the seats are supposedly memory foam, which is a plus for any comfort fanatics out there.
8. Cathay Pacific
Some first class cabins on Cathay Pacific flights only have six seats, and it makes sense. When you have as much room for a bed, storage, tv, and an amenity kit that comes with high end toiletries and sleepwear.
7. Air India
On air India’s website, it says you can find the “true meaning of luxury” and do so while sinking “your feet into the plush carpet.” Their seats are 180 degree reclining, which means you get a bed. This guy looks like he’s having the best, most relaxing time. Every first class flyer is ensured a window seat as there are no in-between seats available to make room for the pod-like seating arrangement. And don’t worry, they do in fact serve Indian food and it’s supposed to be very, very good.
6. Virgin Atlantic Upper Class
Virgin Atlantic doesn’t even wait for you to get to the airport to start your Upper Class experience. A limo can come pick you up to take you to the airport. After that, you end up at the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse where airline customers have the option of chilling with a drink, some food, wifi, or, if you like, a haircut as the clubhouse usually has a salon or spa.When you’re on the plane, a nice flat bed waits for you in herringbone seating patterns to give you as much space as possible. On top of all these nice amenities you get for paying first class prices, seating arrangement is free. And when you get back home? There’s a limo for that, too.
5. Asiana First Class Suite
There are usually 12 seats, or suites, in the Asiana First Class cabin. While it’s not the biggest amount of space, it’s pretty ample, plus you can completely close your suite off. The television they also provide is 32” and is possibly the largest screen any airline carries. The luxury seat folds out into a bed, which measures at 210 cm long. There’s a personal mini bar and an extra seat should a companion visit you.
4. Qatar First Class
While the seating arrangements are roomy on these first class flights, at first glance, Qatar’s First Class cabin doesn’t look that different from most other luxury airlines on this list. However, the reviews are high for this one and it probably has to do with all the little things that can make a difference. First off, their first class in Al Safwa are something else in itself. There’s a mini hotel, a prayer room, a spa, duty free shops, and workstations all in a setting that looks like it’s from some high-tech future. The seats in the cabin do appear a little wider and is designed with more open space instead of secluded ones. Plus, there’s a bar onboard complete with a bartender and some treats.
Not only does Emirate’s first class offer you all the benefits of most other first class airlines like generous leg room, tv, fancy food, and drinks–you can even get what they call “moisturizing sleepwear” where the fabric is said to release nutrients from sea kelp to prevent dry skin from dehydration and–for those really long flights–the pajamas help stimulate circulation, too.
2. Singapore Airlines
Singapore Airlines is rated as one of the top if not the top luxury airline to ride in. At over $20,000 dollars, you can experience their world-class service on your way to your vacation. The cabins are more train-like than most first class planes designed them. You essentially have your own room with a bed and tv. The chairs are separate from the bed, something unique in first class cabins. Singapore Airlines become the first airline to have double beds. And if any of that doesn’t scream “fancy” then the room covered in rose petals with a bottle of champagne on a fancy tray doesn’t should assure you this is an experience reserved for the glamorous.
1. Etihad Apartments
Flying at the top of first class on Etihad gives you two options: an apartment or a suite. Yup, an apartment and a suite. It’s the roomiest you can get on a major airline when you’re being told you can stay somewhere usually reserved for buildings that come with a nightly charge or rent. Forget a curtain or a cubicle. Here, you can close your own doors. The apartment comes with a vanity unit and an onboard shower.
