Airports can be the worst: we’ve all been there with our luggage getting lost, planes getting delayed, connections missed, and above all, rude people. We all love to travel—it’s the airport we all have to juggle through. However, if you fly the first class, then you will get all the pampering that the airport world has to offer you. First Class is a luxurious travel experience, that it is like being transported to a private universe. Some of these first class airlines specialize in making sure your flight duration is in full luxury, and pure happiness. So strap into first class, and grab yourself a cocktail.
