We must admit that going around the world in business class, was one of the most exciting things we ever did. With oneworld we flew with Finnair, British Airways, American Airlines, Air Mexicana, JAL and Cathay Pacific around the world for a price of proably one business class ticket to Hong Kong. Real travelista’s don’t have to ask what our top three is. We were extremely charmed by British Airways new World Traveler Class and the T5 facilities at Heatrow. The cabin of the World Traveler Class offers an excellent lay-out in the airplane with a decent amount of privacy for those wanting to sleep or relax. Superb service, tasty food and a good selection of inflight entertainment. Runner up is Cathay Pacific with it’s new and improved business class. Because of it’s success, the business class cabin is quite big and feels not so exclusive as it used to do. The better option is to book a seat on the upper deck where there are only two rows of full-flat beds with lot’s of space and privacy. Of course, as a bonus, you can visit the fabulous lounge at Hong Kong Airport designed by John Pawson.Third runner up is JAL, which gets the gold medal for service and friendly staff. Flying Japan Airlines is like stepping back in time, when service and polite  airline staff, were something natural. We all know that nowadays this is not the case anymore. Maybe Ryanair will start charging extra in the future, for every smile you get onboard.
