First Class Airline Cabins and Airport Lounges Review:
Singapore Airlines A380 Suite: The very best airline and suite, with refined styling
in the A380 suite, plus excellent food and service. No shower on the plane, unlike
Emirates A380 first class cabins. The Private Room off the first class lounge at
Singapore Airport is excellent, if it is possible to get an invitation.
Emirates Airlines A380 Suite: Excellent service and good food. The styling of the
suites will not be to everyone’s taste and many will consider the styling gaudy or
tacky. Two showers on the top-deck first class area. The first class lounge in Dubai
is noisy with sounds coming from the concourse below. The food in the first class
lounge at Dubai is not good.
Qantas First Class: Not really very good. Whereas Emirates and Singapore Airlines
have an on-demand meal service, Qantas doesn’t offer that.The ‘suites’ are nothing
more than comfortable seats, with no privacy.
Virgin Upper Class: The seats face in a herring-bone pattern, making it impossible
to see out of the windows. Upper class is really somewhere between first class and
business class on other airlines. All aircraft have on-board bars, but those in A747
aircraft are located in the cabin so do not operate during the night.
British Airways A747 first class: First class lounges are generally very good, but
the A747s look outdated. Service and food on-board are okay, but no more than that.
Thai Air A747 first class: Awful service on-board. The food is okay, but nothing
special. The first class lounge in Bangkok is very good, with an escort to and from
Private Jet. Well, the best way to travel. Not cheap, but such fun. I flew from
the UK to Paris, just once, by private jet.
