Yes.


Ah, I forgot that you get there quicker first class, my apologies.

Business travel. But then price doesn't matter.

Mega rich wouldn't fly BA.

You get off before cattle class, so yes, but there is more to it. Try it, you’d understand.

It's a premium product
Same as OJ, cars, toilet paper...
Do you get that? Or is it just airline seats?
However, I personally would only pay 50% extra for the bed/food etc. for a plane ride

I agree with you. I went 1st class with Emirates and had the chauffeur drive service. It's good if it's for a loved one that deserves it but definetly not worth the money IMO!

. For the price I'd expect the plane to detach itself from standard class and get you there in half the time.

. Lap dances from the staff

. Full body massages(and I mean FULL!)

. A hot chauffeur to drive me around throughout the duration of my trip.



I know a lot of companies allow their staff to fly business 1st class. I'll stick to premium economy though.

Heat added for the price.
Carlton Leisure are a bunch of cowboys. Avoid if you can. Worth paying a bit more and either going direct or through another 3rd party.

Long legs in economy is straight up torture. That would be reason enough for me if I had the money

But yeah, wouldn't really go with BA for first class. The one time I got to fly first class was with Amercian Airlines, which was kinda insane. From the moment they gave me slippers and a wine list, I knew I was out of my element
It's not just the flight though is it?

If you want to make the most of the experience and truly get better value you can get to the airport early and take advantage of a luxury experience you'd spend hundreds of pounds on.

Flying from Heathrow you can take advantage of the Concorde Lounge, and have a private cabana with a full day bed, and shower, desk, television etc. it is basically a mini hotel suite with free room service, and phone and so on.

Then you have the Elemis day spa, where you can book lots of great treatments and relax.

Lets not forget the excellent food on offer, you are getting a full restaurant experience that some have compared with even a 1* rated Michelin place, unlimited drinks at the bar, any other food or snacks you may want.

You get private security so no waiting, priority boarding, and then you obviously benefit from the much better flying experience where you are waited on hand and foot, and given everything from pyjamas to perfume, and a skincare and wellness package with about £70 worth of products in it. When was the last time you got a grilled lobster in economy, or enjoyed a premium scotch whiskey in a decent crystal glass, or at breakfast time got a whole pot of tea? Were supplied premium noise cancelling headphones. The list goes on.

Is it good value vs. a normal economy flight? The answer is both yes and no, yes because instead of spending 7-8 hours in a small seat, after waiting 2 hours in security queues, and plastics seats in the departure lounge and boarding gate, you get to make it an experience and a relaxing enjoyable one at that. Instead of it being the worst day of your holiday/trip, you can make it one of the best (or two). No, because it takes the same amount of time and you start and finish at the same place, and may also cost the same as your entire trip.

TL:DR if you take advantage of the whole experience, there is more to it than moving a few thousand miles in a tin can.

"Unless you're mega rich I don't understand why you would like to travel in comfort and be able to stretch, lay down and sleep comfortably, rather than seat in a cramped seat with no legroom for 8+ hours." I guess you also don't understand the reason behind buying a new Mercedes for £40k if you can buy a 20 year old car for £1k.
Don't forget you'd also earn at least 17,000 avios and 420 tier points for this flight, if you include your BA executive club number.

The avios are worth at least £170 (possibly more depending on the relative equivalent cash fare).

The tier points earnt on these flights would automatically get you BA Executive club bronze status (free seat selection, business class check-in and priority boarding) and is 2/3 of the way to silver status (BA or oneworld lounge access regardless of class of travel
