Where you’ll get the best VIP treatment.

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.
