Reward Flying Ratings First Class - International flights 5 hours or longer
Reward Flying has been busy earning and spending reward points flying different carriers and aircraft types. Aviation technology is constantly evolving. For international travel a number of new aircraft have been introduced in recent years including the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350, complementing the Airbus A380, Airbus A330, Boeing 747-8i and workhorse of long haul flights the Boeing 777. Reward Flying reports attempt to rate these experiences in terms of aircraft, cabin seating (often referred to as the hard product), food service and amenities (soft product), as well as In-Flight Entertainment systems and how well the cabin crew served their customers. The overall experience is simply the average of these individual ratings.
Reward Flying Ratings Business Class - International flights 5 hours or longer
Note: These ratings are my own opinions and the flights taken were not provided by any carrier. Ratings are subjective and are based on the flight itself, meaning a 3 hour domestic flight in first class isn't the same as a 12 hours business class flight. For example a seat rating of 7 on that 3 hour flight in first class does not mean that same seat would get a rating of 7 on the 12 hour business class flight. Even the same seat on the same carrier might rank differently depending on the the flight duration as well as the condition of the seat. When possible consideration is given to how something ranks against another carrier on the same route.
Comparisons are grouped in three categories; First Class International flights of 5 hours or longer, Business Class International flights of 5 hours or longer and First or Business Class flights less that 5 hours.
A rating of 5 is considered average in my view. Tens are hard to come by. Ones are tough as well. Objectivity is the goal.

Singapore Airlines A380 Suites from JFK to SIN via Frankfurt kick off the next trip. Then the elusive Thai A350 is scheduled. But I've had it scheduled before only to have it changed, so when it's parked at the gate I'll be confident. That ride is followed up by a visit to Thai's Royal First lounge in Bangkok and then the least expensive first class reward you can get on Thai's B747 down to Sydney. A repeat of NZ's 787 and Emirates' A380 will be the choice for crossing the Tasman and back. The flight home is on American's flagship 777-300 aircraft.
