“Travelers are dreamers who make their desires for adventure a reality”
Travel is an activity that brings together all people from different backgrounds and experiences. There are always people that travel just to learn from different folks and to meet different countries unlike to the ones they are used to, others to grow the self-knowledge and others to simply run away from reality and from the daily life.
We all have different reasons and self-motivation to explore and travel the world. It is always important to know why we do things because it is a way to express who we are and what inspires us to pursue that self-internal growth of someone.
This little (not so...) introduction to get to the real point... The difference between airline’s classes represents much more than simply benefits to the travelers... It is a way to demonstrate the exclusive profile of each passenger. It is fair to say that not all people are interested in executive or 1st class options, but for those who are looking for something extra during flight, there is always the option to upgrade to a different cabin.
Below we are going through what you get for your money for a typical economy class or premium economy, business or even first class tickets. Obviously, each airline has its own characteristics and differ from each airplane and even if you are on a short or long-haul flight.
ECONOMIC CLASS: In economy, you will get a seat that takes you from point A to point B. You won’t have much unless a seat with restricted width and pitch – ooh, it will matter after long 6 hours flight. Power outlets, wi-fi, food, in-flight entertainment or even TV are some characteristics that can vary in economic. For the price that you will pay, you won’t get much, only the minimum necessary.
ECONOMIC PREMIUM: Economic Premium aka Not Quite Premium, but certainly one step above economy, means that you are flying with the same service as the economy, but..... you will have a few extra inches of legroom as well as seat recline. Obviously, you will have to pay a little more (nothing is for free, isn’t it?) but at least you will feel with a little more space for yourself (you can be on a lucky day and get some extra food or even speedy boarding.....).
BUSINESS CLASS: It is a saying that if you fly business class once, you’ll never be happy in the economy again. While it might be hard to easily see the benefits of the premium economy over the economy, the luxuries of business over the premium economy are immediately apparent. Everything is better: “check-in” priority and more luggage to carry along with you, dedicated lounge in the airport where you can fill up on free food and drinks, with real glasses and proper knives and forks, full flat-bed seats and all the space to stretch your legs, wi-fi, in-flight- entertainment and travel kits, differentiated food menu with some options and a different and personalized flight attendant services.
Have we convinced yourself to try this option on your next travel?
FIRST CLASS: It's not for who wants it, it's just for those who can. Literally.
Mostly reserved for celebrities and super-duper- lucky rich people. Think of everything talked previously and add a pitch of luxury (well not so a pitch......). Aside from privacy and seat size (I don’t think that we can call seats to almost real beds....), the service of the flight crew is so premium that is undeniable and the food... Dishes created by Michelin starred chefs are enough?
Obviously that everything has a price. And when it comes to luxury, comfort, and exclusivity all together, the price is really high..... But extravagances make the difference and those difference are for those who can, not for those who want. Again.
