British Airways

Even if you’ve invested in your own private jet, long haul destinations can sometimes mean flying commercial is unavoidable. However, with the quality of first class seats growing ever more luxurious this can still be an enjoyable experience. Click through for our guide to the best first class seats around.

British Airways

British Airways is renowned for representing the best of British and its First Class Suite doesn’t disappoint. Each stylish suite is equipped with a 15-inch screen, noise cancelling headphones and power supplies for personal devices.

If you are looking to get some rest then you can slip into your pair of cotton pyjamas while the crew transform your seat into a 198cm fully flat bed with a quilted mattress, white cotton duvet and pillow. To ensure that you arrive at your destination feeling fully refreshed you can make the most of a Liberty London amenity kit featuring selected aromatherapy essentials.

There are also plenty of refreshment opportunities while on board with one of the widest ranges of award winning champagnes and wines on offer. British Airways has worked with a team of top chefs to create its “Height cuisine” which has been designed to offer the fullest flavours while at altitude. In keeping with the British theme a traditional afternoon tea is also served with a selection of individual sandwiches, pâtisserie and scones.

A first class seat from London to New York JFK with British airways starts from £8,960.
