Can First-Class Ser­vice Cure the Com­mon Cold?

LuxeGetaways - - Contents - BY MARK OR­WOLL

Take two days in Paris and call me in the morn­ing… Ev­ery fre­quent trav­eler dreads the dis­rup­tion of a well-planned itin­er­ary at the last minute. In my case, it was a por­ten­tous tickle just aft of my uvula be­fore a long-awaited trip to Paris. I was still suck­ing down Cold-Eeze by the box­ful as I ar­rived at JFK and made my way to the Air France busi­ness-class lounge at Ter­mi­nal 1. Bar­ring any sep­tic melt­down in my ton­sils, my next three days were go­ing to be idyl­lic: I would fly busi­ness class to Paris, spend two nights at the ren­o­vated 5-star Ritz Paris and re­turn home on Air France’s first-class ser­vice, La Première. As­sum­ing, that is, I was still upright and breath­ing once I reached the City of Light.
