Not even a little. My wife, the same woman who complained for a year and a half about all the time I spent on DDF, and all the trips to CVS/Walmart/Target, said about 45 seconds after boarding that she will never fly economy again.  :P

She's going to have to.. In retrospect, I don't think it's worth it to use points to fly business to Israel.. It was a great experience but I doubt I'll do it again.

CX F over EK F because I value the actual comfort of the seat my .... will be sitting in more than a shower for example..

SQ J over EK J because the actual seat on SQ is excellent, spacious etc.. Plus service is fantastic too.. But most are good service wise..

you really cant go wrong with any one.. I gotta rank em somewhere though.. All of the top ones are excellent

Why KE A380 over 747-8?

I guess it depends on short or long haul.
for 6 hours or less i would choose the 747 but for the JFK-ICN flight i like to walk around and/or stand by the bar for bit to break up the flight so the A380 is really the winner. now that i think about it, its probably why i like it more then CX.

I value the bar more than the privacy, so yes.  Also, we had a really fun flight crew and only two others in F.  I'm flying EY A380 later this year and am anticipating it topping the list.

it's crazy how the right flight crew can really change everything, especially when its a 14hr+ flight. CX is great, EY is great but I've had situations where the KAL crew really went above and beyond. eg. when boarding a flight out of ICN the purser asked if i was in the mood for anything to eat, and I replied that I was craving a Caesar Salad and if they have any salad that would be great.... right  before the doors shut I saw an out of breath Flight attendant run on board with a bag and laughed to myself how she must have been super late. It turns out the Purser sent her to the food court to get a Caesar salad for me. Never in a million years would i have expected that and I was embarrassed that they went through all the trouble. But it really shows a certain level of service that isn't as prevalent with other airlines. Of course EY is the best hard product, the international crew is great and they probably would have had a ceaser salad on board already but there is no way they would have done something like that.

sorry for the rant, i've been going to mainland china a lot lately and this is my only outlet for the nuances of F

I agree.  On QR F, the head FA hung out with us for hours, and when we told her we were spending most of our time in CNX she summoned an FA from economy who was from CNX.  She also used to work at the LM so she gave us a handwritten note to give the manager (we each got a nice corner suite but that may have been due to status.  We'll never know), and she wrote up an itinerary for us.

I actually was conflicted on JL or SQ on which would top my current list:

SQ - very private suite, edible meals, better entertainment. I found the bed to be hard for sleeping.
JL - very comfortable mattress, better ground service (at NRT transit), open suite though felt private. Meal was stogel (cough cough..) and did not find anything interesting on the IFE.

Both had great service.

Though GA service in J, may have been better than both of those. It was that great.

Had a great time in Japan (only been to Kyoto) and would look forward to return on NH and see Tokyo etc. Best way to try NH would be through VS - especially when there is a transfer bonus - though it would need to be booked as RT. Takes away the fun of trying another carrier.

Wow. Deets?

Service was genuine and warm Indonesian hospitality. All 4 FA's taking care of J were excellent. They would never talk to you while standing, instead always kneeling down so they can be at eye level. They knew exactly how often to come and when not to disturb.

If you are walking towards the lav, they welcome you in and hold the curtain/door for you.

They took pride in prepping meals and were concerned when I was not eating the shelf stable Stogel food. Made sure to constantly offer fruits/snacks and drinks.

The seats were reverse herringbone and comfortable for sitting, not so much for sleeping, as the tray table sits in a constant "over-bed" position, only a little space over. For sleeping on back it's ok, though you cannot turn or get comfortable on a side.

Entertainment was decent too. They had a really good soundtrack for boarding and landing (was ringing in my head the rest of the day) though I cannot find a link to it online.

The service is what stood out the most.

Exactly and you can see why when you are onboard. First class can be expensive / hard to redeem miles for. Intra-asia (my flight was DPS-KIX 7 hours) was 40k delta miles.

The A333 on that route does not have first class. First only available on the 77W.

The 77W does DPS-NRT daily, it also does DPS-PEK and DPS-PVG sometimes. May be a better J seat on there.

That's the difference between the German hospitality and the Asian hospitality, they're both nice, just different. I personally prefer the warmness and genuine care of the Asian's over the stiffness of the German's but to each their own.

I've had the chance to recently experience JL F, NH F, and KE F, and i'm a bit puzzled that the consensus is to rank JL / NH F well ahead of KE F. It might just be my taste, but i thought the KE F was superior to both of the Japanese products. and more important, JL was much better than NH. to be more specific:

Hard Product - KE > JL > NH.   I just really enjoyed KE spacious seats, Open concept and unrestricted legrrom,  To be clear, JL was pretty good as well, but NH was just uncomfortable and felt very claustrophobic. if i had to rate on a scale of 10, i would rate KE 8, JL 6, and NH 2?

Design - KE > JL > NH.   I just loved the fresh and modern design of KE. everything from airport (ICN Airport is my new favorite. it just looks like something from a futuristic movie), lounge, plain, FA outfits. where as the JL / NH products seem something of the past in comparison. Again, NH design and even outfits seem like something from 80s.

Lounge - KE > JL > NH.   Again, the KE and JL experiences were somewhat similar i felt. Their lounges seem modern and and comfortable, but the private large cocoons gave KE a slight edge i thought. NH in comparison, is just light years behind. their F lounge in NRT is just an embarrassment. small, crowded, terrible design and even worse in comfort. i mean i was so underwhelmed. those chairs, urgh, seemed like something from a 3rd world country.

Soft Product / Service - NH > JL > KE, only redeeming quality for NH. though the difference between the 3 was very small or negligible. it might just be the specific crews that we encountered, so hard to rate service based on just one experience, but the NH FAs were just super accommodating.

Food - all equal - I won't really rate here, as i'm very picky with food, and didn't feel like i could differentiate the 3 much. I dont really drink, and can't really eat any of the Japanese or Korean dishes. the intl menu, wasn't really memorable in either case. so..

overall, i flew 7 F products, and would rate as follows:

CX
KE
EK
JL
NH

AA
UA

just my 2 cents

It's impossible to respond to that without including the exact plane types and routes you flew.
Title: Re: Rank The First/Business Class Cabins That You Have Flown
Post by: TAVI on July 01, 2018, 11:20:10 AM
JFK-NRT JL
NRT-JFK NH
HAN-ICN KE


777-300ER on all 3.

KE was the only one that wasn't long haul, but i slept like a babe on the flight and experienced enough of it, that if anything, the long haul experience would be even better in my opinion.
I understand that a lot of it is very subjective, and i can understand maybe rating JL and KE on the same level, but NH hard product / lounge experience, design, was just so inferior that i don't think the service alone can overcome.

Neither EY or QR give anything close to a real F experience.
So what would you include in a "real F experience?" Just SQ, CX and EK?
EY is not real F?
If EY and QR are not "real," (I'd disagree), then EK isn't either.

On that train of logic, it's Asian or bust (something with which I also disagree).

The major factors are:

-Hard product
-Service
-Hard Product bonus perks like a shower
-Food
-Booze
-Lounges

Random thoughts:
-US airlines F is dead due to poor service.
-The ME3 don't have consistently good service, though I found EK to be better than the rest. Service is a huge part of the F experience and bad service will kill the whole thing.
-Asian airlines like JL, NH, and SQ have out of this world service. CX service can be more robotic and less warm than the rest of the Asia carriers.
-SQ suites are a step above the rest for privacy and the new suites look amazing.
-CX has by far the most comfortable bed, bedding, and seat.
-EY's seat and bed are spacious, but not particularly comfortable. Seat recline is also poor.
-EYs shower room is tiny and dingy. Its' not nearly as enjoyable as the EK shower spa which is much larger and feels more like a Park Hyatt than a Holiday Inn.
-You won't find food and champagne/wine reviews here, so look to FT if that's important.
-Lounges like LH FCT are nice to try out, but in the end of the day I can lounge at my home as well. It's not what makes or breaks the product.

-SQ suites are a step above the rest for privacy and the new suites look amazing.

Main issue with SQ is the hard bed. That is after they add a mattress pad on top of it, to make it softer. 9W, CX, JL, QF all have far superior beds.

The new SQ suites, does not seem to have fixed that issue. Still a hard bed and a seat with an awkward facing position during dining.

Here is a quote from OMAAT's TR:

Quote
The bed isnít especially big, and isnít soft. There are no individual air nozzles. The seat isnít especially comfortable when lounging, and is awkwardly placed. Youíre forced to face the aisle when you eat, and if you want to face the window, you canít even sit especially comfortably, given the limited space in that direction.

Main issue with SQ is the hard bed. That is after they add a mattress pad on top of it, to make it softer. 9W, CX, JL, QF all have far superior beds.

The new SQ suites, does not seem to have fixed that issue. Still a hard bed and a seat with an awkward facing position during dining.

Here is a quote from OMAAT's TR:

Agreed.
Alas there is no perfect F option. But SQ/CX/JL/NH/EK will give you a good sense of the best it can be.

-CX has by far the most comfortable bed, bedding, and seat
JL's seat is better
