I have been lucky enough to fly Upper Class twice now. Once when travelling to India with work and again when we flew to LAX from the UK for our California adventure. Both times were paid for by the companies! I would never be able to pay for Upper Class myself, I normally fly economy, even on my honeymoon.
I have flown Upper Class with both Emirates and Virgin Atlantic and I have flown economy with both too. One thing I noticed is that you get treated completely different by the air hostesses in Upper Class to when you sit in economy (especially with Virgin Atlantic). I suppose I should have expected this seeing as the price is extorinate. I did enjoy Upper Class, but don’t think it is worth what they charge.
The best things are being able to lie down, having a proper pillow and a choice of meals, all served on proper plates and with cutlery. I won't deny that I didn't enjoy the Champagne, Afternoon Tea or Cheese Board!!
The worst things are being interrupted by the air hostesses all the time, I personally like to be left alone to watch a film or read. Also I don’t like how you can’t see out the window with Virgin Atlantic and you can’t cosy up to your husband because of the barrier between you.
My favourite thing about flying is looking out the window, seeing which country we are flying over from a birds eye view. I love cosying up to Rich too. You just can’t do these things in Upper Class.
