Want to go to Toronto and Pittsburgh in October by business class but it costs so much. Don't like sitting in economy next to random strangers.

Hopefully I'll get that 25k job.

I was looking at what first class tickets over your way would cost if we bought them outright.... Yeah, not gonna happen.

Probably not as good as Krishna's or Ray's though.

Some places give you first class for 1000 or there about's but those are ones with just bigger seats. There also companies that I wouldn't really want to travel by such as transat.

Business class on Air Canada with the beds is what I want. But it costs 2037.65.

It's not that bad but that's a whole month's wages if I did that.

$18,738 for first class on Iberia airlines, operated by United, from JFK to Heathrow first class.


Do you get to keep the plane?

Oh, I see. The reverse side of the Lounge's new reign of "ignore rules that have always been enforced" is "invent rules that have never been enforced."

Whenever I go with my family I travel in Economy as I'm happy to do that as I'm sitting next to someone I know.

Our flights to Italy were also first class, on Delta. Dreading my next flight to Europe, as it certainly won't be first class, unless I win the lottery.

If you're just going from London to Toronto or NYC, I'd suck it up and sit coach. London to Toronto is "only" 6.5 hours. That's not too bad. Just get really drunk beforehand and pass out on the plane. You're better off buying passes to get into one of the airline lounges so you can relax in the airport, and have some free booze. The Delta Sky Lounge single day passes are only like $50.

Define "not in the previous thread much." Do we have to make 150+ posts in the previous thread to qualify? Do tell.
