First Class for business Poverty Class for personal


If it is my own money, I can't justify it.

What's first class? I'm packed in the sardine can rear end of the plane along with the rest of the poor grunts. I just count my lucky stars I'm not hoofing it to my destination.

When I get upgraded...I never purchase 1st class fare. If it's a longer flight I'll consider business but generally don't and just bank on an upgrade. Usually works out but sometimes doesn't but for hundreds of dollars more it's hard to justify when it's personal travel. Business travel depends on what the client is willing to pay for.

Never, I don't have the means to (never had), however I took my first flight (tourist class ) in december 1961 (Paris-Amsterdam) , so next December that'll be 55 years that I have been flying (tourist class)- maybe not quite that much, since there were some years I didn't fly, but let's say half a century! and I'd like to have the chance to fly at least once, if not 1st class, business class, before I die! but up to now I found the prices outrageous (for me at least since I make only the equivalent of 40.000 $/year before taxes)...

I have MVP on Alaska and get upgraded to first pretty often, with that said I would never pay for domestic "first class," it is not worth the money. Internationally, I have flown business with Delta, United, Turkish Air, Cathay, Air India and Garuda. I have recently flown First Class on Cathay Pacific from Hong Kong to LAX and it was one of the best (flying) experiences, both in the air and on the ground, of my life; definitely recommend flying international first once in your life, it's awesome.

I spent 30 years flying business class, hated it. When I retired, I promised myself to only travel first class and I have kept that promise.

What is the difference between Business and First, apart from the price ? Businees would seem an upgrade to me, lowlife user of the "cattle class", though...
