Are Business and First Class the same?

No, First Class and Business Class are not the same services. Business Class is just above Economy/Premium Economy and provides more legroom and comfortable seating. However, when you fly First Class, you'll get all of the benefits of Business and more, such as your own private 'room' on the aircraft depending on the airline you're flying with, and fine dining. If you're travelling to Australia for business and don't want to spend too much money on the flight ticket, we recommend flying in Business Class.


Is it worth flying first class?

Absolutely! Flying in first class is a flight experience which is second to none. Flying first class is the best experience you could get onboard a commercial aircraft. The service and amenities for the first class customers are best of the best. For the Europeans who are looking to travel to Austrlia, first class can be a great option, as the flight times between EU and AUS are quite long and spending that much time on an economy class may not be everyone's cup of tea.
