I'll start with a recent gripe. Some of the EK 777s don't have lie flat, which I'd not known. I'd only ever flown on the A380s, which are pretty good.

And for fuck's sake: Even BA is 100% lie flat."

Pretty often. In the last year and half probably like 6-7 international trips half of those in Delta One. Some times you get first flying out and economy coming back.

I feel like Delta has really improved their product even in economy. Still they have some old aircraft. Recently flew to London on an old 767. Delta one was still nice but it's better on their newer a330 and 777. I've only flown Y on their new A350 but even that was a good experience.

Corp travel policies about who gets to fly in Business Class vary widely and it's pretty hard to pin down. (See link below for a thread on Flyertalk that discusses this very thing. It's a bit of a long read.)

Most American companies seem to be Coach-only, but large firms usually have some sort of provision for Premium Econ. And then, of course, certain industries (Big Law, Strategy Consulting, Banking/VC/PE) commonly have Business Class travel as part of their policy.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, and I prefer it to 1-2-1 reverse herringbone.

KLM is such garbage. I booked a ticket on KLM (SFO-AMS-DEL) specifically because SFO-AMS was on a 788 with the new "World Business Class" interior. Day before the flight was to depart, there was an equipment change to some old clunker (A330?) with angled lie-flats.

I did get to experience the new World Business Class on the return leg from AMS-SFO, and it was basically KLM finally achieving the same standard in J that the proper carriers had five years ago."

Because unless you luck out on a widebody that usually does international flights, or one of a handful of purpose-built transcon narrowbodies operated by AA, or get to fly JetBlue because you live in Boston or NYC, any US domestic first class is going to be essentially more legroom and a 2-2 layout.

I'm a longtime Alaska flyer. Here are why I fly them, not necessarily in priority order:
1. They are geographically the best airline for me. (West Coast, etc.)
2. They seem to have their shit together. They've never screwed me over, which makes them part of an increasingly small minority.
3. Their employees (at least, until recently) seemed happy to be working there.
4. Mileage Plan is still mile based and not revenue based.

Their "First" is basically Cathay Pacific Prem Econ...minus Cathay's in-flight entertainment. I've never paid for F on Alaska, and everytime I've flown it it was because I got upgraded as a top-tier elite. Which reminds me of another big reason I fly them: My upgrade rate is close to 100%."

I don't fly them anymore since their alliance with AS broke, but Delta as an airline isn't as bad as a lot of the others.

Operationally they're pretty good about staying on time, but I've only had one flight in the past few years that Delta didn't do an unannounced equipment swap, causing me to lose my seat and get bumped to a back of the cabin middle. That crap is one of the reasons I prefer Southwest for domestic flights when possible. The miles program is hot garbage, and while Delta One okay for flights to Europe it is completely outshined by most Asian carriers J products, assuming you'd even want to redeem the outrageous skypeso price they ask for it. Add to that, using Korean/Flying Blue miles on their more desirable routes has pretty much become a unicorn since they rarely make awards available at the lowest price anymore."

I forgot about Delta as they literally do not operate them domestically from ATL, and won't except for an eventual Hawaii direct flight instead of the current 2-2-2 A330. Otherwise, all Delta One routes are JFK/BOS to SFO/LAX, and in my experience that's not guaranteed as Delta is the king of equipment changes.

>United new Polaris is good on some routes too
Does not operate at all on domestic routes yet, except for a handful of test flights before they put the plane on its planned international route. They call all their business class "Polaris", but the new Polaris seats only exist on a handful of jets.

>AA has great lie-flat product
IIRC this is only available on A321T aircraft for domestic flights. Everything else, transcon or not, is in regular domestic first class seats like Alaska's. And AA's food is bottom of the barrel."
