I was wondering how long it would take for someone to say "first class is the way we act". Oh puh-leeeeeze gag barf wretch.
Let us frame the overall question this way.
You are paying to rent a seat in an aluminum tube that is going to travel from one airport to another in from 1 to 6 hours.
There is no lasting benefit to having ridden first class...true, the meal portions in F are about 1/3rd bigger than in Y but my opinion on that is why are you better off to get 1/3rd more glop?
First Class, especially on domestic flights, is for people who want to trade their FF mileage for a bigger seat and/or free cocktails instead of keeping them for another flight which, based upon certain airlines' historic stinginess in allocating seats for FF use...may not be a bad idea.
But anyone who would pay for F needs their head examined. Businesses that throw money away by flying their employees in F need their stockholders and customers to rise up in protest.
Folks in F don't act any more suave, sophisticated, debonair, or any less gauche than those in cauche (good one, eh?).
In fact, folks with REAL money can be found in Y, because they didn't come by that money by throwing it away on F airplane tickets.
I am not convinced that F is not for folks who are insecure about their station in life, and think if they sit "in front of the curtain" people will see them as much finer people than they actually are.
Back to the question? Is domestic F worth it? Not only no but hell no. If you feel compelled to throw your good money away on F tickets I have some beachfront property in Nevada you might be interested in.
