FLYING FIRST CLASS…

ACCORDING TO THE INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE, THE GAP BETWEEN FIRST CLASS AND COACH HAS NEVER BEEN SO WIDE.

FIRST CLASS GETS UPGRADE IN DRIVE FOR PROFIT.

AIRLINES HAVE BEEN ENGAGED IN A GLOBAL BATTLE FOR TOP EXECUTIVES AND THE SUPER WEALTHY ON THEIR INTERNATIONAL ROUTES.

ALTHOUGH THE NUMBER OF FIRST-AND BUSINESS-CLASS SEATS ON MOST INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS IS RELATIVELY SMALL, THEY GENERATE AN OUTSIZE SHARE OF REVENUE FOR THE AIRLINES.

IN RECENT YEARS, THE AIRLINES MOST AGGRESSIVE IN ADDING LUXURY TOUCHES TO FIRST CLASS HAVE COME FROM ASIA AND THE MIDDLE EAST SAYS JAD MOUAWAD FROM THE INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE.
