Your friends are hosting a ladies night weekend in Vegas, but as you do the math on airfare costs, you notice something – a first class ticket doesn’t cost THAT much more than flying coach. Sure, it is a bit of a splurge, but maybe it is worth it? Here are five reasons why it just might be…
YOU NEED TO TAKE A CAB TO THE AIRPORT
Nowadays, a lot of airlines actually provide first-class passengers with a complimentary ride to the airport. Some high-class airlines even offer VIP pickups in cars ranging from Mercedes-Benz to Porsche.
YOU’RE PLANNING TO CHECK A BUNCH OF BAGS
Think about it, you could end up shelling so much more extra in baggage fees alone. Most of the first-class tickets come with one of the best air travel perks there is: free bag check!
YOU ALWAYS BUY FOOD AND DRINKS ON THE PLANE
Put away your credit card, because when you fly first class, food and drink typically comes included with the ticket price. Who wouldn’t want free drinks and delicious snacks?
YOU’RE TRAVELING WITH YOUR KIDS
Major US airlines will soon offer on board nannies to first class passengers (Etihad Airways already does). Hard to put a price on that, right?
YOU’RE ALL ABOUT STATUS
By booking first-class, you’ll accumulate “status points” at a much faster rate. Those points can be put toward airfare, upgrades and more.
