PREMIUM AT A GLANCE
◗ Price is important but don’t pay over the odds.
◗ Type of aircraft is a major consideration. Try for one with its own premium class toilets. Your travel agent or Seat Guru should help here. I’d try for 787 or a 380.
◗ Airline choice is less important, but Qantas was the most friendly.
◗ And if you do fly Virgin Atlantic, remember to bring your own noise-cancelling headphones because theirs are rubbish. Cathay and Qantas have excellent sets.
