Which airlines are best in class for First, Business & Economy Class?

Not everyone has travelled First class, Business and in some cases maybe have never flown before in Economy.  But if you had unlimited cash, you would want to do your homework on the best airlines to travel with. Airlineratings.com have done the hard work and reviewed which are the best. The airlines were assessed on cabin classes including the space allocated to passengers, innovations and product and safety reviews by experts and airline passengers.

Airlines have been looking for new ideas to attract customers to fly with their airline over their competitors and every year aircraft are either bought or refitted by airlines to improve the customer experience.

First class is usually reserved for the select few who have the funds to travel in style which some aviation journalists compare first class travel with staying in luxury hotels. The top ranking first class cabin goes to Etihad with the ‘Residence’, your very own hotel in the sky.  In second place is Singapore airlines with offers its guests to dine together in their first class suite.  Closely followed is Emirates which provides excellent entertainment facilities.

Don’t worry if you can’t afford First class, then Business Class is the second most prestigious class to travel.  With Business class many airlines still offer you a seat that can turn into a comfortable bed. Virgin Australia’s bed secures top stop within the Business class category followed by Air New Zealand.

After business class is Premium Economy which offers bigger seats, improved leg room and better food and drink than Economy. Air New Zealand takes top spot for this class.

Probably the most popular class of travel for the majority of us is Economy.  Singapore airlines tops the Economy class category.
