Upgraded from economy to business on a Jet Airways flight from BOM to LHR last year. The trip wasn’t an easy one as it was a visit to a friend, who was in a very bad way, and when I was checking in at the airport, exhausted for my return, I got shunted around a lot but kept smiling. (In fact, at the crowded LHR departure gate on the first leg of my journey, when I wasn’t paying attention, one of my fellow passengers filched the cashmere sweater I’d just taken off moments before… so that was, well…) Anyway, boarding at BOM I was pulled aside inexplicably and started to get worried as no one would tell me why. Then – sudden silver lining – an upgrade! Perhaps as it was a night flight, I was traveling solo, and had one piece of soft hand luggage, and there was only one seat empty. Was placed next to a French government minister who promptly fell asleep. I pre-ordered far too much food for breakfast from the Indian options, and got off the plane in London 10 kilos heavier but happy!
Traveling first class is as good as it gets. Premium check-in, spacious and comfortable seats, a lot of leg room, great variety of food and drinks, free alcohol and a small number of fellow passengers – every aspect of onboard service is perfect. Obviously, the opportunity to enjoy such a luxury while being up in the air isn’t cheap but there are ways to save quite a lot on first class flights.

Before rushing to launch a first-class trip request, it's important to understand a few things. Not many people want to fly anywhere in the world. Most travellers have a destination in mind and wouldn't want to leave their plans up to chance. That's why we created the Super Cheap First Class package. This premium package allows you to choose where you'd like to go and your expert will arrange the cheapest first class travel option.
Some airlines, including United, will offer discounted first-class upgrades after you book your ticket. To find them, you need to login to your reservation online before you check in for your flight. (These offers might also pop up as you check in.) Delta will let you switch to a first-class fare on the same itinerary with no change fee, so if you see a good first-class fare open up after you book, call and lock it in.
You see, there are normally a very few first class seats available at reduced rates. So instead of looking for cheap round-trip first class deals, you may purchase two one-way tickets on different airlines. Thus, your chances to find what you want double. Now, one-way trips generally cost the same as round trips. Especially on some domestic routes, there is usually no huge difference between prices for coach and first classes.
All of the major U.S. frequent flier programs now let you book one-way tickets with your miles for half the price of a round trip. If you have a stash of miles, consider using them one way and buying a return ticket that originates outside the U.S. Thanks to the strong dollar, there are many fares below $2,000 round trip to the U.S. this summer, like Copenhagen to New York for less than $1,400 and Dublin to Chicago for less than $1,600.
Exclusive to London Heathrow Terminal 5, The First Wing helps you speed up the process through the airport and maximise moments of comfort, relaxation and indulgence. The dedicated space offers an enhanced, private check-in area, two exclusive security lanes, and a direct walkway that leads seamlessly into the Galleries First Lounge and then the Concorde Room. It is available if you're travelling in First, are an Executive Club Gold or a oneworld Emerald member.
Another way to join is to get a BA American Express card, which automatically lets you in. It's also one of the best-paying reward schemes on the market, paying points for normal spending on the card, and if you hit a certain amount, giving a free 'companion flight' on top. Always set up a direct debit to pay it off in full each month – otherwise it's 22.9% representative APR. See the Airline Credit Cards guide for more details.
I don’t care how fancy the hotel is, my room has to have a bath. I would absolutely look out on a car park and a wall as long as I could have a bath in my room, rather than a shower. I’ve changed rooms in hotels, taking a smaller one, so I could have a better bath. The best one I’ve ever seen was at the Post Ranch Inn in California. My favorite rooms are built into the cliff, right on the Pacific Ocean; it’s not even a view, because you’re in the view. They have huge, square baths, like a high-end hot tub. You could live in it, it’s so nice. It’s very deep, the water is very hot, and everything smells of lavender, which I love, and there’s a proper wood fire with logs. It feels a bit like classic Twin Peaks. That’s the most beautiful hotel in the world.

Philippine Airlines – Dedicated first class or the "Maharlika Class" cabins was withdrawn in mid- 2000's. During the second half of 2006, PAL announced a cabin reconfiguration project for its Boeing 747-400 and Airbus A340-300 aircraft. The airline spent US$85.7 million to remove all first class seats and increase the size of its business and economy seats, leading to the aforementioned new seats; as well as add personal screens with audio and video on-demand (AVOD) across both cabin classes.
