The Basics of First Class Travel

Christina Valhouli offers a basic course in international first class travel — what it gives you, why people pay so much for it.

On the whole it’s basic but good, though I can’t imagine how she ranks Lufthansa and Air France’s first class cabins as superior to Cathay Pacific and ANA’s.

As for me, I’ll take ANA’s new first class (available only on certain routes like JFK-Narita) over anything else in the world. And I’m looking forward to trying Qantas and Air Tahiti Nui up front for the first time next year.
