Advantages of Flying First Class

Get Ready for the Flight of a Lifetime

When it comes to flying first class you get more than just a cocktail and more peanuts. Just close your eyes and imagine if all the stress of traveling was put aside as you get to fly in the same manner many celebrities do. Flying would no longer be felt like a hassle, rather, for the first time, flying would complement your traveling experience, transforming from being a stressful experience into being finally an integral part of your vacation that can also be enjoyed.

Because, let's admit it, flying in the economy class can be quite stressful nowadays. It all starts the minute you arrive at the airport. Very likely you woke up very early in the morning, got your luggage ready, had to travel to the airport with your hands full of luggage and then you are faced with the hustle and bustle of the airport life. 

Your luggage may be quite heavy, you must go through the security check point, take off your shoes, be treated like a cow among a herd getting ready to be branded, then you must  rush at your gate and wait for several hours, only to be shuffled in another crowded area and finally upon boarding you are given a seat where your legs barely fit, right  next to a snoring neighbor and with kids kicking your seat behind. It is no wonder why you always get to your destination like if you were just ran over from a truck.

Instead imagine now traveling first class... You will have a separate check in counter to expedite your departure process. Then you board the plane with nobody blocking your way. Once on board, your legs can stretch and your shoulders can rest comfortably against your cozy seat. You also have plenty of elbow room now.  The seat can be pushed back a lot so you can get ready to snooze.

Add on top of that the fact that the first class section is also much more quieter and peaceful  than the rest of the plane and you have the perfect recipe for relaxation. There are very likely no children or crying babies,  just plain and simple other people traveling for business or leisure that are willing to relax.

As a first class flier you will also get much more food and drinks. You also often get to choose what you want to eat. Superior customer service awaits you because they know you have paid more and you deserve more than the average passenger. You may also get several gratuities such as lip balm, towelettes, moisturizers, cotton socks and cooling eye gel.

Booking early is crucial if you are looking for first class lower rates. This often grants that your seat is reserved and guaranteed for you. Everybody should once in a life time give first class a try, even though the price tag may give sticker shock to some, the catering and pampering received may ultimately forgive the hefty prices.

Well good for you! I did it only once but only because the flight lost our luggage and gave us a free upgrade to apologize, it was great!

In my country, Yukraina, our first class accomodations have a bar where, you can challenge the captain to a vodka drinking match, there are lush chairs and a lap dancing pole for our stewardesses to show the first class passengers their emergency exits. However, the first class conurbation is the part of the plane that always hits the ground first after the captain forgets to put some more fuel in. Which is why I always travel with the goats and the boxes of peaches every time I fly. Flying, in what we call "ballast class", is much cheaper. And so are the stewardesses.

Not all airports have special lines for first class passengers to go through security. When I flew first class, it was just as much of a hassle as flying coach. The only difference was that I had a little more room and more beverages than I could drink.

I call BS on that one guy's comment. Also, there is no country called Yukraina unless he meant Ukraine. Anyways, first class is good in some aspects like getting on the plane earlier and having more space and marginally better food.
