Our Best Flight Reviews Of 2017: United Airlines, Emirates & More


This year we have travelled all over the world and we have selected our favourite Business Class and First Class experiences below. We were lucky enough to travel in the new Polaris Business Class seat that is only available on a few routes so far. This is a real game-changer for American legacy airlines.

We were also delighted to experience the new Emirates Business and First Class on a press tour. The Emirates First compartment is a game changer with amazing virtual windows projected onto the walls and NASA weightless seats.

If you are travelling on any of these airlines next year, have a read of the reviews below to find out what you will experience.
