First Class with British Airways promises to offer passengers the most impeccable comfort with an exceptional service, all delivered in an elegant environment. First means having access to spacious, private suite – ideal for passengers to relax in as they work, indulge in the in-flight entertainment or satisfy their taste buds with gourmet cuisine. The services are just not limited to the flights, however; travelling in First Class also manages to be a luxury experience from the get-go as British Airways provide an attentive service to ensure each passenger can feel the exclusivity.
The First suite takes on the form of a home in the sky for all passengers; it is designed to be a haven for both comfort and style – a sophisticated setting where the very best of British hospitality meets refined attention to details, and innovation comes in the form of the surroundings, the services and the workspace. For passengers who would prefer to sleep when boarding the aircraft, the seats can be easily reclined to a fully flatbed; white cotton duvets and quilted mattresses are provided, along with a luxury pillow, allowing each passenger to slip into bed and settle down as if it were their own. To make the experience even more comfortable, passengers are provided with a pair of soft pyjamas.
The practical element of the First suite is the accessibility to a personal power supply; British Airways have taken into account that many passengers travel with their personal and portable electronic devices and laptops when they go away whether for business or leisure. However, by having the power supply on board the cabin, they allow passengers to simply charge their personal devices, or for the business traveller needing to plan a meeting, or some work before they arrive at their destination, to do so before they land.
For the conscious business traveller, they may also be concerned about freshening up before arriving at their destination – particularly on a long-haul flight. British Airways also accommodate for this – for the passengers who have worked throughout their flight and now need to be presentable and raring to go when they arrive. Amenity bags are provided to each passenger in the First suite, packed with skincare products from a host of premium ranges; the amenity bag also includes moisturiser, lip balm and eye gel, allowing passengers to feel their very best. All of the products are presented in a very stylish, Anya Hindmarch bag which has been designed exclusively, and is now a signature for First.
The entertainment that is available to the passengers who wish to relax in their flight is another important aspect for the First Class cabin on board British Airways. An entire world of entertainment can be accessed by each passenger, and can be enjoyed on a personal monitor which measure 15 inches. Passengers will also have the chance to use their own entertainment and transfer things from their iPods, laptops or even their digital cameras, straight to their personal monitors via RCA and USB ports. Hours of television, the latest blockbuster films, audio books, music, documentaries and games are all easily accessed through the entertainment menu and noise-cancelling headphones are provided to ensure each passenger can lose themselves in the entertainment and not be disturbed – or disturb – those around them.
First also offers passengers gourmet cuisine in a variety of forms. To keep it quintessentially English, British Airways offer Afternoon tea which has been a tradition for the English from 1830. Cakes, sandwiches, pastries, clotted cream, scones and jam are all available to be enjoyed with a specially created blend of Twinings to top off the perfect, British, luxury travel experience.
