Video: The Best First Class Flights

In this week’s video, we’ll have a bit of fun and look back on the seven best First Class airlines I’ve flown with so far, as well as how I was able to book each and every one of these trips on points and how I was able to maximize every experience to the fullest.

From the now-defunct Asiana Airlines First Class to the overwhelming luxuries of Emirates’s 777 and A380, the many First Class adventures have no doubt made for some of my favourite travel memories in recent years, and I very much enjoy sharing these experiences with you and hopefully helping some of you achieve the same for yourself.

Without further ado, you can watch the video below:

(What’s next, you ask? Korean Air First Class and the Etihad Apartments, coming up very soon!)

    Etihad First class Apartment deserves honorable mention. I’m targeting AUH-CDG or AUH-LHR for 2020.

    1. Ricky YVR

      I’ve got AUH-LHR booked for 2020, so look forward to seeing how it fits into this list!

        How did you book Etihad, with which program / transfer?

    Agree, Emirates 1st class is amazing. My wife and I had the opportunity to fly the mistake fare in May 2018. LAX-DXB-MXP-DXB-LAX. Just for the LAX-DXB (over 15 hours) leg, I polished off ¾ bottle of Hennessy Paradis Imperial which retailed for $3000. In MXP airport, a stretched version of Mercedes Maybach chauffeured us to downtown Milan which was quite a ride. Not to mention we collected 78834 Alaska Miles which we promptly used it for 1st class Cathay JFK-HKG-JNB in May 2019.
    All thanks to your I have just booked for Feb 2020, multi stops 5 continents itineraries and can’t wait to try out the Business class Turkish new Boeing 787-9 from IST-BOG with dine on demand.

    Hey Ricky,

    When flying ANA F, are polaris lounges available to us when flying in from canada?


    1. Ricky YVR

      Yes, as long as you’re departing one of the US airports in Star Alliance business class or First Class, you’ll have access to the Polaris lounges.
