What Are First Class Flights?

First class flights are a luxurious travel class offered by the world's top airlines. It's a select number of seats in the front of the aircraft for passengers that want superior service and amenities before, during and after their journey. You'll dine on meals prepared by world-class chefs, enjoy a personal entertainment system with free WiFi, have access to an exclusive airport lounge, and enjoy enough room to lie down and get a good rest as you travel to your destination. Some airlines are even taking first class to another level and are moving away from traditional seating. Instead, these airlines are equipping their fleet with suites or apartments. These options provide more private space, wardrobes and even hot showers.

How to Find and Book Cheap First Class Flights

When searching for first-class flights, always check the prices for one-way flights. Depending on your final destination, it can work out cheaper to book your flights separately rather than as a roundtrip. Use Webjet's flight comparison search engine to compare airlines to find the best deal for your trip. Sign up for Webjet's first-class airfare newsletter. You'll get email alerts as soon as there is a sale or any special discounts. If you don't need all the extra amenities (like an onboard lounge bar), save money by booking a first class ticket with a smaller airline. You'll still get all the comfort and luxury at a more affordable price. Another hack for finding cheap first class flights is to use a credit card that rewards you with miles each time you spend. Some credit card companies also have partnerships with select airlines and offer airfare discounts that can save you anywhere between 15-30%.

 

Where Can You Fly First Class

With an average flight time of 19 hours including layovers, Amsterdam is the perfect destination to splurge on the best first class flights from Australia. Explore the city's history by visiting the Anne Frank or Van Gogh museum. Take a stroll along the picturesque Zeedjijk street or go on a tour of the Heineken brewery. Bangkok is a bustling metropolitan city that's known for its award-winning street food. Shop till you drop at the mega malls, visit ancient temples and schedule in multiple Thai massages. With direct flights from Australia and a generous exchange rate, it's one of the best destinations for a luxurious holiday abroad. Travelling to Los Angeles from Australia worth the flight time. If you're going to buy a first class ticket, make the most of it with a long-haul flight to the other side of the world.

Emirates won the award for Skytrax Airline of the Year in 2016. Its first class suite features virtual windows, a lounge bar, prestigious Bordeaux wines, and an on-board shower spa. Eithad's luxury first class service is one of the best in the industry. The Residence features a living room, a double bed, a private shower, and a personal butler.

 

How to Get an Upgrade to First Class

Before you by your first class ticket, do some research. Browse early bird specials on Webjet to find a discounted fare or use your loyalty points to knock off some zeros from the final price. If you don't find any deals, arrive at the airport in style. You don't need to wear a suit, but dressing the part will go along way helping you get a seat upgrade. While at the check-in counters, ask the gate agent if there is any chance they can upgrade your seat, or if the flight is overbooked volunteer to take the next flight out as long as you get an upgrade.
