3 Business Class Airline Products I Look Forward to Flying

3 Business Class Airline Products I Look Forward to Flying

 

There are 3 Business Class Airline Products I'm Looking Forward to Flying within the next 6 months. While nearly everyone loves to fly first class, sometimes there's no first class for a given city pair, or the airline itself doesn't offer first class, or it's just not worth paying the increased miles for first class, among other reasons.

My current favorite business class is JAL Business Class, flying in one of the window seats, because of 1) how comfortable the bed is, with the airweave mattress pad; and 2) how private it is, since it's basically like an enclosed suite, and you have 3 windows on one side.

As TravelSort clients and readers are an extremely well-traveled group, I look forward to comments on this post of recent experiences in any of the three business class cabins I'll be flying.

1. Qatar Qsuite Business Class

Many people have raved about Qatar Qsuite Business Class, from the innovative quads to the fact that your bed is turned down with a mattress pad (rare for business class) in addition to the duvet, and you receive sleepwear/pajamas (typically only the purview of first class).

I'm especially keen to test out the new bed, given that the old Qatar Business Class I flew back in 2013 was one of the most uncomfortable flat bed business class beds my husband and I have ever experienced.

2. EVA Business Class

China may be pressuring airlines, including U.S. carriers, to refer to Taiwan as Taiwan (China) but EVA, founded in 1989, proudly refers to itself as a 100% privately owned Taiwanese airline, with Taipei as its hub. It regularly wins awards for being among the best international airlines, with the best business class amenities, including its meal pre-order choices, cuisine quality, champagne (currently Veuve Clicquot La Grand Dame 2006, one of the priciest champagnes served in any business class) and typically very professional, consistent service.

3. Aer Lingus Business Class

Aer Lingus' short routes are most akin to the low cost carriers it competes with, but its trans-Atlantic business class service aims to deliver great value for money (or miles, in the case of award flights), with seats that turn into 6 feet 5 inch flat beds, complimentary WiFi (the holy grail of travelers), friendly service, and arrival lounges as well as departure lounges in Dublin and JFK.

If you've recently flown Qatar Qsuites, EVA Business Class or Aer Lingus Business Class, what was your experience?

This is my first and only experience with EVA Business Class. LAX-TPE-MNL on a 777-300ER. The cabin was extremely hot – no individual air nozzles. Food was…meh. Service was below average. Unfriendly FA’s (and I am a very friendly and considerate kind of a guy). I asked for a glass of H2O and it came back warm. I saw the FA used tap water (yes, tap water) and didn’t even put ice……how ’bout that! So, I swore not to fly them again this coming November back to MNL…but…but…Avianca LifeMiles is not showing any Asiana flights for my return leg and… Read more »

Hi Hilary, I recently flew EVA Air TPE-BKK-VIE and I can confirm that it was one of the best business class I tried. While the lie-flat seats are not enclosed suites, they are very comfortable, but what made it special was the crew, attentive and super nice. Food also was excellent, comfy pajama and slippers, nice Rimowa amenity kit. While the seat is comparable with the United Polaris that I flew SFO-TPE, the experience is WAY better with EVA. A different level.

So glad to know that you had a 180 degree satisfaction difference compared to mine Alessandro! But why the inconsistency EVA?
