Comfort, innovation, value, and safety.

Those were the factors Airline Ratings, a safety and product review group, took into consideration when ranking the best first class airline cabins in the world. 

Etihad Airways, which offers a spacious first class “apartment,” ranked highest. The airline from the United Arab Emirates also won in the Best Long Haul Airline category.

First class cabins were also rated in terms of space and design, two factors that contribute to the passenger’s overall comfort.

Here are some of the best offerings from Airline Ratings’ top 10 first class suites in the sky.

1. ETIHAD AIRWAYS

First Apartment is a fitting name for Etihad’s homey cabin, which has a 6'10"-long bed, a vanity unit, and a shower area. An upgraded version is the First Suite, where a bigger bed and a refreshment cabinet await. All first class passengers get Christian Lacroix bags packed with Omorovicza skincare products.

 

2. SINGAPORE AIRLINES


This cabin features top-notch in-flight technology. Noise-cancelling Bose earphones, a 23-inch LCD screen, and Internet amenities keep first class passengers entertained.

 

3. EMIRATES


“Master the art of me time,” says an Emirates ad. True enough, its first class cabin is all about rewarding passengers with fine wine, detoxifying refreshments, and organic products from Irish skincare line VOYA.

 

4. QANTAS


Qantas First passengers may choose to have an eight-course tasting menu prepared by Neil Perry.

5. CATHAY PACIFIC


Cathay Pacific’s first class beddings have a thread count of 500. Add to that an Aesop amenity kit and loungewear by PYK, and the passengers are promised a good night’s sleep.

 

6. AIR FRANCE


Michelin-starred Daniel Bouloud is the chef behind gourmet meals served on Air France flights coming from the United States. Renowned chefs Régis Marcon, Guy Martin, Joël Robuchon, and Michel Roth create dishes for flights departing from France.

 

7. BRITISH AIRWAYS


Indulgence here is a selection of Champagne. A glass of bubbly is served before the flight.

 

8. NIPPON AIRWAYS


Nippon's first class cabin is the picture of Japanese functionality: a square room that houses an entertainment system, a spacious seat, and all controls that the passenger needs for ultimate comfort.

9. LUFTHANSA

This airline's offers include lighting options for first class passengers.

 

10. KOREAN AIRLINES

Experience homey privacy here—there’s an 83-inch space between two Kosmo Suites on Korean Airlines.
