Can First-Class Service Cure the Common Cold?
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.
