Four Airline First Class Products I Want to Try in 2024

January 25, 2024
Osman Dadi
There are four airline First Class products I hope to fly and review for Oscape in 2024, including the acclaimed new Japan Airlines A350-1000.

I wrote about my elite travel strategy for this year in a separate article. I’ll be embracing a freestyle strategy of buying whatever ticket works best for me.

In any case there are several airline products, I do hope to fly and review for Oscape in 2024. Some of these I’ve wanted to fly in since 2023. I’m very excited to find the availability for this year. I posted my Business Class list separately – this is for First Class.

Japan Airlines A350-1000 First Class Suites

Newly launching in 2024, this product is the crème-de-la-crème of First Class cabin products. The new cabin design offers impressive space. Features include privacy doors, wardrobe space, headphone-free audio, wireless charging, a minibar, and communication with FAs via the television.

I’ve already reviewed JAL First Class in the B777-300ER and loved it. In fact I loved it so much, I flew it a second time in late 2023. The new cabin on the A350s represents the next generation of this flying experience.

Buying these on cash is a steep $10,000+. I will try to find a way to fly this product on points this year – tough as it is!

Lufthansa B747-800i First Class

There’s nothing quite like flying in the Queen of the Skies.

I found an amazing award booking for the B747 in first class in 2023. I gave it up to fly Delta’s A330-900neo to Tokyo from Minneapolis.

While this is an older product, it’s an experience becoming more difficult with time. I had a great flight in Business Class on the upper deck in 2023.

Al Nippon Airways ANA B777-300ER First Class “The Suite”

I’ve flown Japan Airlines B777-300ER First Class a couple of times already. I’d like to try the competition and evaluate the experience in The Suite.

This award booking is one of the toughest to find in the world. Availability is released once in a blue moon.

I had a flight booked in this product in March 2023. I cancelled it in favor of an earlier travel date on ANA in business in The Room, a review I never posted. 

Emirates or Air France First Class

Both carriers are up there on my lists. Both are difficult to book on points – Air France is nearly impossible, and Emirates is expensive.

Air France La Premiere

We’ll see if it happens!

Final Thoughts

I am not fully certain how my travel plans pan out this year.

I do think we’ll see some interesting journeys and fruitful reviews in time.
