The cost of first-class travel is more than the other classes available. It is because of the environment in which you travel and the facilities that are available for you to experience.
First-class travel is on a very comfortable seat that can be termed as the ‘Bed in the sky’. Yes, it is true! It is possible to recline that seat on all angles to give you the comfort needed while you sleep. The headrest can be tilted to various positions to suit your posture. You get more space and legroom while you travel in first class. A vertical partition is also available that gives you the privacy needed during your travel.
Sockets to attach your laptop and telephones with satellite connection are available to communicate with anybody you wish. Video monitors and video players with multiple channel options are available for first-class travelers.

This facility is available in the night flights.
Some of the airlines provide online check-in facility for first-class travel so that you can check in before you arrive at the airport. This avoids the need to stand in the queue to check-in. It saves a lot of time for you. First-class passengers are allowed to take more luggage.
