The four best value first class airlines

First class air travel offers an added degree of comfort and extra amenities which many business travellers value for helping them arrive prepared and refreshed. If you’re willing to spend more to enjoy these services, our experienced business travel advisors are here to advise you on the best services available.

Here are four airlines that we think offer the best value for money when it comes to first class travel:


Consistently voted the world’s best airline by a range of awarding bodies, Emirates continues to outdo itself with first class travel. From dedicated limousine and check-in facilities to your own private suite, spa, and shower facilities, it is a truly luxurious travel experience. Attention to detail is second to none, with the world’s first moisturising sleepwear now available to passengers.

British Airways

With the first class market seemingly flooded with offerings from the Middle East, one can forget that British Airways was the original luxury travel provider. The airline has responded well to such competition, and provides a slick and functional service with some of the best dining options of any airline. As well as offering many more routes and services than other long-haul airlines, it has some of the best airport lounges worldwide, with spa facilities, exceptional dining and even cinemas.

Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways is often compared to Emirates on both quality and price, and its first class service certainly rivals its neighbour on many fronts. With opulent cabin decoration, on-board bar and excellent choice of cuisine, the large flat-bed seats and entertainment options allow you to refresh and prepare in style for your chosen destination.

Swiss Air

With just eight first class seats on Swiss Air’s long-haul flights, you’ll enjoy more privacy and discretion than with other airlines. The airline offers usual first class extras of priority boarding and higher baggage limits, as well as private cabin-style flat beds and the industry’s largest video screen at 32”.
