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?
