Three flight attendants were allocated to the 25 passengers in the Business-Class cabin with two working the cabin and one working the galley preparing meals and drinks. Prior to take-off the menus were distributed with passengers having a main course choice of Grilled Chicken Breast served over linguini with pesto Over-baked Crabmeat and Corn Boat offered on rice pilaf or Tortellini filled with mushroom accented by Bechamel and Tomato Basil Sauces. The fasten seat belt sign was turned off about fifteen minutes after our 945PM on-time departure from Santiago and Gloria the In-Charge Flight Attendant walked through the Business-Class cabin and personally introduced herself to each and every passenger welcoming everyone aboard the flight. This was a very nice touch and very impressive. As the flight was full Gloria worked with her colleagues in the coach cabin for the duration of the flight.
At 1015 PM approximately 30 minutes after departure the first drink service started and my travel partner and I enjoyed the flight`s featured cocktail the Iceberg Cosmopolitan (a refreshing mixture of Newfoundland-made Iceberg Vodka mixed with cranberry juice and a splash of Grand Marnier). A small plate of premium nuts was served as well. This was soon after followed by a hot towel service and 45 minutes after departure the Captain had still not welcomed us aboard the flight with a standard flight synopsis announcement. Captain Green made no such announcement on this flight.
And that`s just economy. In Diamond class travellers are treated to the "revolutionary" Diamond Seat which rotates 180 degrees contains a 23` personal LCD video screen has a six-way movement headrest with built-in massage facility and is able to convert into luxurious 6 foot 1 inch flat bed. The zone even has a coatroom and mini-bar. Seats in the Pearl zone also convert into flat beds or "business-beds" as they are called.
Traveling first class or business class is a luxury few can afford. Most airlines now offer a fully exclusive first class lounge and when you fly you are treated to more space high quality food and attentive service. The benefit you get is that you can check in later at a dedicated desk (avoiding the queues). You can then relax in the comfort of the airline`s lounge where you will find complimentary drinks snacks newspapers and other facilities. There`s no rushing or queuing to board your flight. Your flight seat will usually be a cradle that stretches out to a virtually horizontal position which has legroom up to 60". The in-flight staff is dedicated to your cabin and when you arrive your luggage will be amongst the first off the carousel.
