There is no way you can to rationalise the cost of flying business class for people who have only ever flown economy, no I didn't think it was worth the money.
Being 65 years old you realise you have far less years in front than you have behind.
Travelling Business Class has been on my Bucket List for many years which has now been realised.
The unparaleled quality service kicks of on the day of diparture when your complemtary uniformed chauffeur arrives driving top of the range Mercedes limo is at your front door, on-time to drive you to your chosen diparture airport.
Once at the airport & though the dedicated fast track check-in & though security.
You first proper taste of real luxury is the business class lounge which is all complemtary including champagne, quality food & drink all professionally displayed for you. There are showers, & loads of space to work or chill out reading or just looking at all the coming & goings.
Once on the aircraft.
Your seat is like a private cubical with oceans of glorious space to spare, the key word is "space". 1500 channel on demand entertainment tv centre. They also offer you your own seat mattress, your seat fully reclines for you to stretch out up to 6.5 feet long.
The clincher for me has got be (believe it or not) there is a lounge bar at the rear of the aircraft with space to sit, relax & walk around have a beer or whatever, eat some bar snacks all served by a professional cocktail bar person, you can even watch live broadcast sport eg football or chat to your fellow passengers who are often from all over the world.
The lunch is in a world of its own, think fine dinning experience.
They offer you an aperitif with a selection of warm cashew nuts.
Lunch arrives on your dedicated tray served on china plates & chilled cutlery wrapped in a linen napkin.
You are first given a specially printed menu with wide choice of the three couses.
The wine waiter offers you a wide choice of top quality wines.
All the food is produced by top chefs were cost is of no importace.

Of all the many ultimate life expierences you can choose, in my opinion this has to be one of my all time top ten eventful TOP TOP "MUST DO's" before you die.
Ok given you've got the money, I thoughally & strongly recommend you do this prefably on a long haul flight even as a one of.
