Reply To: BA First Class

Two weeks ago I returned from a great trip to Buenos Aires. Outbound we flew First, and return we flew Club. First was fine, but as so many here have already said, not great. I believe the pre-flight experience could be enhanced as there is no First/Concorde room in B gates. On board the cabin was old, but still comfortable. For us, we found service, crew and food to Sao Paulo to be excellent. We slept 7 hours and had a great breakfast.. From Sao Paulo the new crew were no where to be seen after quickly serving a sandwich. Terrible to be honest. On the return, we had seats upper deck 62J/K which were fantastic. Crew on both sectors were excellent, food excellent, wines superb. Only negative on the return flight was actually prior to the flight as the Lounge in Buenos Aires is the American Airlines Admirals Club, and is quite frankly a disaster, trully disgusting, dirty, crowded and extremely poor. On the basis of these two rather long flights taken, I trully can not justify in myself the massive difference in fare between First and Club, and I found the overall CW product on my return to be of equal quality to that of FC with the seat only slightly better in First. I have not experienced the new First, but hearing all these comments, I think I will only be buying Club from now on.
