How many of you have flown first class in 3-class International first class (NOT business class or domestic first)? Which airlines/plane types? What were your favorite experiences?

Only flown Korean First JFK to ICN - not as flashy as Singapore/Emirates, but spacious seats, open bar, great service, and perhaps most importantly, super easy to book with great availability


Suites - Singapore airline. Never slept so well in my life.

Only United. I heard Emirates is best though.

Only united a long time ago when I had flight benefits. Huge waste of money IMO compared with business.

Some first class emirates areas have showers and a bar.

777 and 747, but the 777 was a two hour hop from DFW to ORD

Might be able to do Cathay F on their 777-300 depending if space opens up. But in general, best F experiences are (in no particular order): Emirates A380, Singapore A380, Cathay 777, Etihad A380, Lufthansa A380 and Garuda 777

Singapore Air is hands down the best.

British airways LHR-PHL I forget the aircraft. Was drinking Johnny Blue by the pint glass. Dinner was four courses. Best use of miles ever (only 60k I think back in 2015)

Anonymouse: Yeah but how much in fuel surcharges? BA is a ripoff when it comes to award redemptions

747 top deck, it is like a private jet

I've flown BA, Qantas and Emirate first. Emirates the best - shower, mini bar in seat, service and drinks selection all great. Qantas second - they have an amazing first/platinum lounge in Sydney.

Flew on Etihad's First Apartment - was an experience for the ages from JFK to BOM

I did Qatar first class when I repatriated to America. Unforgettable.

Singapore suites for sure. Asiana suites was pretty good too.
