The High Cost of Long-Haul Business-Class Flights May Not Be Worth It

A Taste of Luxury: My Experience in Air New Zealand’s Redesigned Business Class Cabins

In the summer of 2021, I had the opportunity to visit Air New Zealand’s headquarters and experience their newly redesigned cabins. For the flight to Auckland, I was seated in business class for the first time. The cost of Air New Zealand’s business-class seats on this route is typically around $6,000, which is quite expensive. While it was definitely the most luxurious flight I have taken, I don’t see myself justifying that expense again in the near future.

I always find myself looking at first-class and business-class seats when booking a flight. The extra space, delicious food, and unlimited drinks are incredibly tempting. However, my budget doesn’t allow for such extravagance. Being invited by Air New Zealand to experience their luxurious cabins made me realize just how much more there is to flying than just getting from point A to point B.

The business class seat provided ample legroom and a comfortable sleeping surface that allowed me to get some rest during the long flight. The food served was gourmet and presented beautifully with attention paid to every detail. The drinks were plentiful and never ran out during my journey from Los Angeles to Auckland.

However, despite all these luxuries, I knew that this type of travel was not something I could afford to do often. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that made me appreciate all the little things about flying without breaking my bank account every time I fly abroad.

Overall, while it may be tempting to book a luxurious business class seat when traveling abroad, it’s important to consider your budget before making a decision on what type of seat you will book in the future.
