TOP 10 Best Airlines for Business Class

Interesting to see non of the USA airlines have made the list as the write up is compiled via CNN.

Four Gulf airlines have made the list, Oman, Qatar, Etihad and Emirates. (Saudi Arabian Airlines has a long way to go to match their Gulf counterparts, although i’ve had pretty good friendly service on board, most of their business class seating is as good as economy on the other airlines and many of their aircraft are in need of a upgrade to maintain the Gulf consistency amongst all its carriers).

Oman Air comes in second after winning many awards in the last 2 years via Skytrax Awards. They certainly pride themselves with these awards as their airports are decorated with posters inside and outside with this achievement.

Read more on it here: http://www.worldairlineawards.com/Awards_2013/jseats.htm

Oman Air is the only airline I know of that asks its passengers to check in early as possible so ” they may experience their service”

IMG_0950

With business class seating, each airline has it different for short, medium and long haul flights. Most times its standard on short and medium haul flights.( Eg. South Africa to Mauritius on SAA  and many local flights within each respective countries).

Conclusion:

Etihad had this promotion twice during 2013. The first time was limited to the first 500 applications and the second time limited to the first 1000 applications. There does not seem to be a limited to this offer (yet). As we all know Etihad changes their minds with regards to terms and conditions over-night so best apply NOW, don’t delay.

Etihad has been building alliances with many other airlines ifnot buying stake into the airlines as well and the benefits of a Gold status will definitely come in handy.

Bonus:

tl et3

Blend the special with selected bonus double mile destinations (check the website for more current offerings from your local hub)

Conclusion

25000 bonus miles is a huge promotion  (considering Johannesburg to Jeddah requires 35024 miles return in coral economy) now blend that with the double or triple miles bonus offerings to selected destinations and fare classes and you basically have your next airline ticket free.

I cant imagine the amount of x 25000 bonus miles people will rack up for Abu Dhabi – Doha (1 hour flying time) per return. (cost AED 765). I wonder if paying and just flying aimlessly here to rack up miles will be in our mathematical economical favour..
