Mine was about 15 years ago. I was scheduled to fly NW SFO-MSP-EWR as a Y passenger. The SFO-MSP leg was a continuation of a service from Tokyo. That flight was something like 5 hours late arriving in SFO. I'd miss every remaining flight from MSP to EWR. The CSA put me on an SFO-MEM-EWR routing. SFO-MEM was on a 727S in coach, but the flight was almost empty so I had a full row to myself. The MEM-EWR leg was full in coach so she put me in F on a DC9-15. That was my first experience with F class and I LIKED IT A LOT! The attention we got was stupendous and I didn't mind the free alcohol and snacks compared to the shlubs in Y who had to pay for their booze and got nothing to eat.

My father HAD to use some miles before they expired so we booked some business class tickets (no first class with SAS) down to Madrid.

I can't say that the service on the business class was much better than that in economy class. The difference is much bigger on intercontinental routes.

Domestic F was many moon ago; I think NW LAX-DTW going to the Detriot Auto Show.

International F was just three years ago, flying MH KUL-FRA. Since then I've managed to add CX BKK-HKG-SFO to that list.

American Airlines this year, LAX-ORD, then LAX-JFK. Very nice indeed!

I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Domestic First:
In 1994 I flew SEA-LAX-PHX/PHX-DEN-SEA in first class on United. I remember one of the flights as being on an old 737-200 that was from the first Frontier. That was an OLD and scary plane.

International Business:
In 1997 I flew SEA-ORD-LHR/LHR-ORD-SEA on United and got to experience brand new 777s. That was when the 777s were brand new and UA was having teething problems with them. On the way to LHR, the reading lights over my seat were not working and would come on and stay on and could not be turned off. On the return trip I was on a 777 with no PTVs and my legrest was broken and would not move. United gave me a $200 coupon to make up for it.

International First:
In 2003 I flew SEA-NRT-SIN-BLR-DEL-FRA-PDX-SEA in United, Indian and Lufthansa in First Class. It was an amazing round the world trip. It was my first time in the nose of a 747 and it was just amazing. I've been fortunate enough to travel international first class on a number of other occasions since.

If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

January 05' from DEN to SEA and then SEA to ANC. I was booked on the direct DEN-ANC flight but it was overweight so I volunteered my seat for a free roundtrip ticket and just thought I'd throw it out there to see if I could get first. To my suprise the guy responded with a yes.

First F on International was this summer from SEA-NRT and then NRT-ORD on UA. All connecting flights were in F as well.

About 1993. Flying from Auckland to Boston on Continental (when they used to fly to NZ). In those days they had economy, business and first. I was upgraded from business to first from Auckland to Honololu, and again from Honolulu to Denver.

The interbational leg in first class was extremely good. The domestic first class was not nearlty as good.
