First class travel – level 1
First-class cabins are starting to look like small hotel rooms. They have sofas, double beds, televisions, desks, wardrobes, minibars, and sometimes even showers.
Airlines are spending a lot of money on these things. The economy is not doing well and prices are going up. But airlines need to make money. They lose very much money during the pandemic. They hope that people who cannot travel during Covid-19 will be okay to pay more for a fancy flying experience. Some people who go on vacation are booking flights in business or first class. They want to enjoy their holiday after a long time.
A German airline Lufthansa is spending $2.7 billion to make its long flights more comfortable. Qantas Airways also has a new, fancy first-class section.
Difficult words: first class (the best or at the highest level), economy (all the business activities of a country), fancy (expensive and nice).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
What other airlines are investing in luxurious first-class cabins?
