Airtrans Business Class

Could someone rate this service? Is it worth the $25 upgrade they are offering?

Worth every penny of it. It's cheaper to book coach then upgrade when you check in. To book biz class, your fare will be close to 3x more than the coach fare. So if you are flying to say ATL-BOS, the coach fare is $79, while the biz class fare is $244 (each way). Before all of the taxes and fees, that comes out to $158 RT in coach, and $488 in biz class. Now if you upgrade your coach ticket both ways, that brings your cost up to $208 dollars, which is a savings of $280 over the biz class fare. Now this was for a flight that left ATL @ 8:30 in the morning, some of the later flights are a little bit higher for the coach fare $99-$129 each way for coach. You get more legroom, a more comfortable seat, snack mix in a bowl (instead of in a package), and two free 'adult beverages'. Pay the $25 upgrade if there are seats available in biz class.

Is it any different than typical domestic First Class on most airlines?

The seating is standard First Class, however the service is much simpler. Two free alcoholic drinks (usually more - but depends on the F/A), and bigger snacks - but nothing heated or comparable to most major carrier's First cabin. These days bus class pax do get a take-with "facial" pack.

It's a great deal. You also get your baggage first off the carousel.

Plus priority boarding. And since FL doesn't have an elite program, you aren't boarding with 30 elites during "priority boarding".

Worth every penny of it. If you're lucky you'll even find an agent who is willing to do it for free, just be polite and nice and you never know what you might get  Wink/being sarcastic
