First Class Interiors. Friday , May 18th , 2018 - 15:04:38 PM
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.
As we took our seats 2D and 2F in a full Business-Class cabin National Post and Globe and Mail newspapers were handed out along with a Spanish language Chilean paper. A bottle of water was waiting in each seat for each passenger however there was no pre-departure drink service for the Business-Class passengers (orange juice champagne wine etc) as is standard on other airlines. I decided the check the magazine rack for some interesting in-flight reading material only to find Canadian Living Chatellaine Canada Food and Wine and Canadian Fishing; titles that are of little interest to most business travelers. There were no business and news magazines such as The Economist Business Week or Time which one would naturally expect to be provided. Our flight was under the command of Captain Green and he did not provide the passengers with a welcome aboard announcement telling us about flying time planned routing enroute weather or weather at destination.
Despite the sagging economy the air travel industry has remained strong. Part of the reason for this is because people will always have a need to get from one place to another for business purposes. As more and more major companies locate their corporate headquarters offshore travel to another city or even another country is actually very likely. Commercial airlines are not the only ones to reap the benefits of this boom in air travel however. Studies show that there has also been a substantial increase in the number of travelers who choose the charter aircraft option. The fact that the cost of a private jet rental tends to be substantially higher than flying commercial has done little to deter this trend.
