Hi y`all, for my 65th birthday, (not long off) I`ve promised myself and partner a business class flight when we next visit her daughter and grandchildren in Melbourne. We`re looking to fly from Heathrow and on seat/trip flight reviews I`ve seen reference to passengers being picked up by chauffer driven Mercedes, varying experiences with business class lounges etc. Are limo`s at extra cost etc ? I`ve flown with BA, Air France, Delta years ago transatlantic, and as a couple we`ve both flown Emirates, Qantas and lately Qatar to Australia in economy tho unfortunately all the varying airmile programs will have lapsed, Qatar being the meanest. But having said that I/We prefer the side by side seating in the business cabin on Qatar business class website as opposed to the weird arrangements of front/back seating "pods" on some other airlines. I fully realise as a newbie faced with a whole host of in the main very seasoned and very well (business/first) travelled members that this request for just what the business class "experience" feels like may be old hat but surely theres a first time for everyone/anyone to fly business.
