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.
