Ever wondered what it’s like to soar in British Airways’ top-tier cabins between Heathrow Terminal 5 and JFK International Airport? Join me on a journey through the opulent realms of first and business class, where luxury knows no bounds.

Imagine starting your journey in BA’s exclusive First Wing at Heathrow, where dedicated check-in and security lanes whisk you away without a queue in sight.

The Concorde Room beckons, a haven of designer furnishings and impeccable service, setting the stage for an unforgettable flight.

Step into a cocoon of comfort aboard the Boeing 777, where each seat feels like a private enclave.

With only eight seats in a spacious 1-2-1 layout, privacy is paramount.

My window berth, spacious enough for four, comes complete with a plush seat that converts into a 6ft 5in lie-flat bed.

Entertainment options abound, from a vast screen for movies to high-quality Meridian headphones.

Despite minor technical hitches, the experience remains stellar, complemented by luxury pillows, blankets, and a Temperley London amenity kit.

Dining is a feast for the senses.

From gourmet meals to afternoon tea, every dish exudes excellence.

Savor delicacies like beef carpaccio and grilled chicken breast, paired with fine wines curated by BA’s master-of-wine, Tim Jackson.

In Club World, enjoy direct aisle access and a seat that converts into a cozy bed for a restful journey.

Though not as expansive as first class, the ergonomic design and ample storage make it a comfortable choice for the discerning traveler.

Service in business class is top-notch, with a wide array of dining options and attentive crew members ensuring a seamless journey.

The menu features everything from sweet potato carpaccio to buffalo mozzarella ravioli, catering to varied tastes.
