Have you ever flown the great blue skies and wondered what it’d be like to fly first class? Well, to be honest, you’re not missing out on much and in fact, I really don’t recommend it. It’s generally for those who are just looking to be looked upon as “rich and important” and in fact, over half of them are in debt anyways. My rule of thumb is that if you show you have money, you really don’t! Anyways, let’s get to the point. What do you really get in first class?
Bigger seats – Unlike coach, first class will sit you next to one person and not two. On top of it, you’re going to get more room and usually, your table is going to be in between the two chairs, so that you don’t have to rub up against the person next to you.
Better service – First class areas usually aren’t that big and most airlines will assign an attendant to the coach area, so when you need something, there will be someone there for your right away. This is great when you need that extra bag of peanuts or extra pillow.
Better food – Most planes nowadays don’t even serve meals. Instead, you’re going to get your choice between a stale cookie or bag of peanuts. The choices can be really tough. In first class, some airlines will cook up a fancy meal for you to make you feel important. Unlike the people in coach, you’re going to get silverware and a full meal.
Entertainment - Once again, depending on the airline, some airlines will offer TVs for every passenger. This is a great way to pass the time if you didn’t bring any material to keep you entertained. Some airlines will even provide you with a paper, book or any other type of entertaining material.
First ones on and off – I think the best thing about first class is you’re able to get on board first. This way, when you board, everyone can walk by you that is going to coach and see how important you really are. And once the plane lands, you’re the first to leave and save a whole five extra minutes.
Hopefully by now, you’re probably wondering if I take first class serious and if it’s worth. Let’s put it this way, if you’re going to pay $200 on a coach seat, plan on spending 10-20 times more on a first class seat. We will all ride on the same plane and breathe the same air. First class is for those who can’t spend their money properly. Save up your money and fly cheap. Put your money to use people!
