As more airlines are doing away with first class and moving towards luxurious business class seats, is flying in the top dollar cabin really worth it? Over recent years, we’ve seen the demise of first class cabins. Airlines such as KLM, Asiana and Korean Air have stopped first class altogether, while other carriers have reduced them to certain long-haul routes. As business class cabins undergo ultra-plush makeovers, the demand for first class has dropped, and so has the number of seats available. So, does the difference between first class and business class still warrant the extra price tag?
