7 Amazing Perks of Flying First Class ...


While I typically fly economy just like the majority of travelers, Iโ€™ve also experienced the amazing perks of flying first class thanks to a mileage rewards program.

Wondering whether itโ€™s worth using your next batch of miles to spring for a premium ticket?

Here are seven perks of flying first class that I especially love.

1. Free Checked Bags

Baggage fees are a major hassle and always one of the biggest money drains when flying.

When enjoying the perks of flying first class, however, a certain number of checked bags will usually be allowed free of charge, depending upon the specific policies put in place by your airline.

When I flew first class to the West Coast for my wedding, for example, I was easily able to check a bag and also carry my gown onto the plane, where it was conveniently stored in the first class closet, helping me relax and avoid worrying.

2. Faster Security Checkpoint Lines

How many times have you arrived at the airport later than expected and felt your heart jump into your throat after catching sight of a long line at the security checkpoint?

Having experienced this several times myself, Iโ€™ve loved being able to get into the much shorter priority line when flying first class.

Along with reducing stress, getting through security faster means youโ€™ll have plenty of time to find your gate and grab a snack.

3. Priority Boarding

In addition to priority access at the security checkpoint, first class passengers are also among the first to board a plane, allowing them to settle in and enjoy a glass of water or juice while awaiting takeoff.

Ever boarded a plane only to find that all of the overhead space was already full?

You wonโ€™t have to face this issue in first class.
