My sentiments exactly. I got of an SA flight in ATL, connecting to LAS on Delta. When I saw the First Class seats I began to laugh uncontrollably. Incidentally the entire cabin looked like a pig-sty.... That was my first and last flight on Delta.

UHHHH... Evidently none of you have flown US in F domestically, I've done it multiple times and I have to say that besides the large seat there is NO advantage whatsoever. I thought AA and DL were quite good in comparison.

Guys, you shouldnt complain. Just say out of all the first class cabins I have travelled, say which one is the worst, because not everyone is as lucky. When I travel, to me forget about first and buisness class, and think of travelling economy with Air Sahara, Indian Airlines and Air India.

And what exactly were you expecting on a domestic flight that last a slight 4hrs at most? Certainly not a sleeper style seat i hope.

I am gonna agree with the above...as far as domestic F class goes, the only experiences I have on a regular basis are transcons...AA 762 are sorta old and not up to date. The food is allright, and the service is okay...you usually get the pretty senior wenches doing the last part of their Asia or Europe leg, so I haven't had great times with them on their rides.

Last March I flew AA first to Santiago, D.R. and those A300 show their age, and what is up with guys taking their socks off and putting their feet up on the headrest in front of them? FA's didnt say anything. How rude.

I think DL is getting a bad rap. Their domestic FC product is a bit dated, but I have yet to be uncomfortable in any DL aircraft. I think it's also the attentiveness of the FA in first which is of the most importance. DL is good, CO is better.
NWA is interesting:
I have had fabulous experiances on them: DTW-MEM on a A320. Superb! Exceptionally attentive FAs, excellent breakfast. I was very pleased.
--- changed planes in Memphis ---
NW DC-9 from MEM to GPT. Totally awful. Exceptionally unattentive FAs, very limited beverage service, messy cabin.

After flying US Airways and American recently, I'm reorganizing my list:
(from worstest to worst)
#1) US Airways - Like B6sea said, besides the large seat there is really no advantage. The last time I checked they were still using PLASTIC in their international first class ("Envoy Class")!!!!
2) Delta - Pretty much as bad as US Airways, but at least they offer a snack basket thing.
3) American - This would be the best airline out of the three, as at least they have meal starting at a low(er) threshold compared to the above carriers.

I got an upgrade into first class on NW, and while the service was decent and the seat, while pretty much a wider version of the economy seat with a bit more recline and more legroom, was passable, I wouldn't want to pay the extra money over economy. It just isn't worth it.

Quoting Ansett767 (Reply 14): Then I take it you havent flown on an INtra European flight on the likes of BA, LX, LH, IB etc?
Its shocking!! The seats are almost idenital with a 2-3 convertible configuration! crazy!
Well try KLM Europe Select class (former business class). That's a 3-3 configuration in the B737 and the middle seat WILL NOT be kept free!
So KL Eur select and KL economy are almost the same, the difference is the seatpitch, 33" for Eur Select and 31" for Economy. Also passengers travelling in Eur Select may use the KLM Business Class lounge, they get a newspaper and a little bit more to eat.
