First class passengers typically get a nicer ride than those in business class, not only because they typically sit in longer, superior seats, but also because they are afforded more amenities. It is easier to enjoy fine cuisine in first class – with even elaborate tasting menus – than in the more modest business class section. Before booking an economy class flight, one of the first things to check out is whether you are going to be put on a middle seat, with less legroom and more pressure than the middle seat, the aisle or the window. On standard economy flights, a passenger is usually put in their seat 40 minutes before the flight begins. An airline gives passengers a little more time if the flight is longer. Seat time aside, some airlines, such as easyJet, place customers on extra seats for added comfort.
The biggest difference between business and first class is that the flight you booked is more expensive. This means that, although you are literally looking at the sky when you fly coach class, it is a worse experience than a business class flight. In the first class section, once the front door to the aircraft closes, you are transported effortlessly. This also means the very best food will be available, as you can sit at your own table and enjoy it. However, at any time, customers will be allowed to choose which way they want to enter the aircraft, something that is unheard of for standard economy class. It means you could be seated in a different section than the business or first class section. Remember that you are always getting a better experience with first class than economy.
