Best First Class Seat Experience - US East Coast to Europe

Sun Mar 04, 2018 1:40 pm

Which airline offers the best First Class Seat experience from the east coast of the US to Europe? I am interested in the physical seat comfort, amenities, etc, and NOT the soft product like service, food, beverage experience. Does anyone offer true First Class seats (not Business/First) to Europe from the US east coast?

Emirates on their A380. Has the shower and that, so if you just want an instagrammable seat...
Air France's La Premiere is on a few planes to the US I think (Houston at least and I'm assuming New york). It's an exceptional product but its the soft product that makes it
Lufthansa as well has 747-8s into New York.

As mentioned, the Emirates JFX-MXP is tops.

SQ’s flights are great, but more for soft product than hard product.

The "old" LH First was amazing.

Now the current is almost as good.

For sure EK A380 is the one to go, next SQ to FRA, but then I would recommend the new swiss B777 F-Class, followed by LH/AF.

SQ JFK-FRA without a doubt on their 380 Suites.
Its currently their older 1-2-1 layout one, not the newer 1-1 configured one in the press last year.
The former is still an amazing experience IMO with SQ's understated elegance.

I'm surprised no-one mentioned BA. has their offering really fell that far?
I remember back in the day they used to have a very envious product.

Air France doesn’t offer the First Class Product to/from IAH.

Air France First Class is available between Paris-CDG and JFK (77W / 380) IAD (77W / 380) MIA (380 winter season) LAX (77W / 380) SFO (77W / 380).
