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

Back to Forum


My first long haul business class flight was meant to be Pan Am from LHR to JFK in 1991. At check in I was asked if I would like to fly with TWA and eagerly said yes as it would be the chance to try a different airline with Pam Am to follow on the way back.
Recall it was huge reclining armchairs in 6 seats across cabin on a 742. I was 21 at the time and enjoying a few budweisers before lunch when the passenger next to me asked why I was drinking beer instead of the champagne.
That soon changed and I remember reading the description of the wines in the menu and being able to taste the peach notes, elderflower overtones etc – the power of suggestion!

Little recollection of the Pan Am Flight back.
