I enjoyed Lufthansas' First Class, but they no longer offer it FRA-YVR. I think First may become a thing of the past at many airlines.

JAL by far, from NRT-FRA with the most exquisite Japanese service, food and surroundings.

unbeatable.

G'day

I have tried 3 different F's -

QF - by far the best. Service, seat, IFE etc etc was outstanding. The only bad thing is the price.

LH - pretty good, but I think their service and IFE is below QF. Food was exceptionally good. The lounges at FRA are very ordinary.

TG - my favourite mainly because of "value-for-money". Seats ok (if you choose the newer ones), service and food outstanding, new lounges in BKK are great. Can't wait until they upgrade their product.

Alot of airlines are stopping the First Class service, and making their business class bigger and better.

Singapore - No question in my mind! Excellent cabin layout, terrific food, biggest screens, tremendous service.

British Airways - Excellent seats/beds, fantastic service.

United - Great sleeper suites. Food is not F class, and the service depends on the crew.

Lufthansa - Their seats are not like the above suites. They lay flat, but two by two on upper deck of 744. Food is OK, service is excellent

The new NW WBC is one if not the best in my opinion, at least for US carriers.

SQ-(I am somewhat biased)
BA-Have flown several times, last time PEK-LHR. Outstanding
QF-Making significant improvements

US carriers, not even close.

No doubts about it:

Singapore, Cathay and British and Lan.

Don't see any U.S. carrier in this regard. Maybe CO but far behind.

I've only flown with BA, and only six times at that so I can't really comment but from what I have experienced it was excellent!

I would love to try F on EK, SQ and NH which has been getting rave reviews of late

VS try to present UC as a First Class product at a business class price which isn't quite true. I know someone who was looking at getting to PHL from LHR. He could fly BA F direct to PHL for £4400 or go via EWR for £4200 on VS.

I am not against Virgin (although it may appear so!) but it is just Virgins marketing dept are so good they manage to elevate the status of an inferior product to make it comparable to BA.
