According to the 2016 Skytrax World Airline Awards, Qatar Airways ranks first when it comes to the overall Business Class flight experience.

But what makes Business Class not only more comfortable than the rest, but great in comparison? Is it that added bit of luxury, a gimmick, or a service no one else has?

Awais Zuberi, the Head of Product at shares his insights on airlines that provide that special touch for all the frequent flyers who demand only the best.

Etihad Airways Business Class has that unmistakable hotel feel (main picture above). Take a walk up to ‘The Lobby’, a lounge on A380 flights, to mingle with fellow passengers and you will completely forget you are thousands of feet above sea level.

Turkish coffee, candlelight dinners, and edible surprises served in the air amidst clouds truly make a Business Class flight on Turkish Airlines a memorable experience.

The amenities kit on Cathay Pacific is loaded with natural Jurlique skin care and special sleep masks, a well-designed and useful beauty kit to ensure you arrive relaxed and glowing.

The award-winning ICE entertainment system that Emirates offers in all classes is obviously even more attractive in Business Class, where screens are big enough to give you a cinema feel. Lean back, relax and watch the latest Blockbusters.

Qatar Airways stands out when it comes to their Business Class menus. Created exclusively by celebrity chefs, gourmet food is served on delicate china. This is inflight culinary indulgence that can definitely compete with some of the upclass restaurants in Qatar’s capital Doha.

If you need to stretch your legs during a long haul on Virgin Atlantic, there is no need to walk up and down the aisles: simply visit the futuristic on-board bar, where you can sip on a concoction of your choice while socialising.
