Best Business Class Airlines

Business Class Flights of Fancy

Back in the heyday of jet travel, airplanes had grand pianos, full bars, even ash trays for smoking. While you may not be able to tickle the ivories on your next flight, you can savor luxuries like five-course meals served on fine china and leather armchairs that fully recline. And you don't have to pony up for a first-class ticket for the privilege.

Not too long ago, getting Wi-Fi up in the air was a big deal; these days its personal screens with 2,000 channels, limo service after you've touched down, and yes, those old-school full bars that take the tedium out of long-haul flights. Business class has upped its game in recent years and we're highlighting the cream of the crop with GAYOT's list of the Best Business Class Airlines.
