By Kristof Eyckmans on Sep 28, 2019 in Air Travel, Speciality Travel People often ask me if there is more to it than just a fancy meal and a bed when flying first class. Well, there surely is. Aside from all the extras you get on the plane, there are tons of perks before and after your flight too. One of them is having access to the most luxurious lounges of these airlines. And while most of them are really nice, some of them are next level and if you ever have the chance to experience one (or several) of these, you’ll be in for the best time ever. Lufthansa First Class Terminal Among frequent flyers and aviation geeks, visiting the Lufthansa First Class Terminal is like coming home and knowing your family will take very good care of you. And no, it’s not a typo, it is indeed a complete terminal that was built in Frankfurt with the sole purpose of making sure its guests would have everything they need before boarding the plane. There is a massive selection of both food and … [Read more...] about Top 5 best First Class lounges in the world

By Kristof Eyckmans on Jun 13, 2019 in Air Travel, Featured, Speciality Travel While most of us love to travel far away, we also dread the thought about sitting in a long metal tube (no, not the one that is riding underground in London) next to a bunch of screaming kids who make you feel like the plane ticket was a total rip off. Lucky enough some airline companies got your back offering us first class. No, not business class cause that’s for people who actually do business.

News Related: British Airways I have reviewed a number of my British Airways flights in First Class. You can find my flight reviews on the A380, B787 Dreamliner & B747 below. The question I also answer in this article is whether it is worth upgrading from British Airways Business Class to British Airways First Class bearing in mind the price and the offering from pre-flight lounge through to cabin, seat, food and staff. Our Travel Auctions Sort Bypopularlatestending Is First Any Good? Yes and no. British Airways First Class is absolutely not the best in-flight First Class product in the world. Not even close. But when compared to Business Class, it comes in as the second best Business Class in the world (only beaten by Qatar on certain planes).
