Ahem…

I think you’ll find there were all business class flights well in advance of Lufthansa’s Privatair service.

Air France and British Airways flew something called a Concorde regularly across the Atlantic for many years, a product specifically aimed at the time poor businessperson.

Subsequent to Privatair, Silverjet, MAXjet and EOS also trialled all business class services, as did the French airline L’Avion, now owned by BA subsidiary Open Skies (technically an all “biz” service, but differentiating between cabins offering a reclining seat and a cabin offering a flat bed).

I seem to recall Air France has a subfleet which does the oil and gas industry hubs using smaller single class aircraft?
