Favorite Name For First/Business Class

Thu Jan 04, 2007 6:26 am

Question is in the topic. You know, like CO Business/First, AF Raffles Class, VS Upper Class, which one do you like?

I am a fan of the NW World Business Class.

Edit: I also found this thread.

Flame if you deem it necessary.

AF Raffles

SQ?  Wink

AF at some time had some weird "Tempo et numero en plus" nomenclature - I used to think it referred to the degree of recline of the respective seat!

LH's Senator Class has a nice Ivy League ring to it. I like FI's Saga Class - although to the uninitiated it may sound like the journey will be arduous!

Off topic, but would Olympic please change their frequent flyer program name - 'Icarus' was the one who fell out of the sky, people - not a great association!

BA's Club World is by far the best of the current names. It is simple, accurate and straight-to-the-point.

IMO TWA's Ambassador Class was the best ever, but sadly this brilliant airline is conveyed to the history books.

VS Upper Class is by far the worst, as I feel it is just a cheap and tacky gimmick, just like VS itself.

Yup good call. I meant Affaires Class. Don't know what it means but it sounds cool. Ambassador Class is by far the best, now that I know it.

Northwest's old "Regal Imperial Service" was a classy name.

It means "in my opinion". IMHO means "in my honest opinion".

Philippine Airline's "Mabuhay Class" (Mabuhay means welcome, hope I got the spelling correct). As a matter of fact, PR even had, maybe still do, a "Mabuhay Box": a complimentary box in which a passenger could check his/her prized possessions. Just think the idea is cute and pleasant, just like the people. Very appropriate! Just their smiles make one feel welcome.
Cheers,
