Reply To: Do you remember your first business class flight?

Back to Forum


My first Business Class flight was in 1981 and was also my first business trip when I was in my mid-20s. This was to Bahrain on a BA B741 in SuperClub. To be honest, I don’t recall much of it being “super” at all. The only memorable experience that I have of it was the very uncomfortable seating. This was basically Economy seating where the 3 seaters along the sides were converted into 2 seaters so that you ended up with a very wide (and uncomfortable) seat. I don’t believe that there were Lounges at that time and that if the catering was an upgrade from Economy, it wasn’t much of one. I might be wrong but I believe that a fully-flexible Economy ticket was sufficient to get you into SuperClub
