Halal Travel Tips: To Upgrade Or Not?

Luxury long haul flights at its best

Flying business or first class is something many travellers dream of. Most of us have seen the luxury ads, the stunning photographs, and the reviews of those lucky enough to have experienced the ‘high life’ when flying. While what we hear and see is enticing enough, it’s normally the hefty price that turns us off. The sad reality? Flying business or first class is expensive, no matter what airline you choose. With airlines frequent updates and changes to their services, features, and amenities, it’s hard not to secretly be jealous of those you notice boarding the flight via the special ‘business & first class gate’.

Wanting to enjoy and experience luxury is normal. No matter how simple you are, given the chance, you’d jump for joy knowing you’re about to enjoy something as exciting as seats that turn into beds, or the chance to have an actual shower thousands of miles up in the air. But the real question is this, is upgrading really worth it? While it probably isn’t on a regular basis or for short flights, it is if it’s something you’ve always wanted to experience and if you’re travelling on a long-haul flight. There’s nothing wrong with treating yourself every once in awhile, and if you only plan for it to be a one-off thing, then what are you waiting for? At the end of the day, it’s a known fact that flying first class is going to be a luxurious and enjoyable experience, something we’d definitely consider worth every extra penny you’d pay for. It’s not just about enjoying the luxuries that come with a business or first class ticket, but it’s about treating yourself to the peace, quiet, and comfort you know you deserve.

Most aeroplanes that offer first class seats come complete with your own private area where you can completely shut yourself out from other passengers. This provides you with the privacy everyone wants and is a great way to sit back, relax and simply enjoy your special moment in your own private luxurious den. You’ll also have a whole range of awesome products from toiletries and slippers, notepads and pens, even clothing and your own mini refrigerator is possible in business or first class. Aeroplane food has never been as exciting as it could be when you’re sitting in your comfortable reclining seats, as luxury meals and menus are prepared and cooked fresh. A whole range of beverages are also available making dining up in the air a rather fancy and enjoyable experience; not to mention your proper eating arrangements is a major plus.

Overall we’d say upgrading to business or first class is worth it depending on the amount of comfort and top-notch services you’re looking for. If you’re looking to fly first class just because you want to experience it, then yes we’d encourage it even more. We all deserve to feel comfortable wherever we are and whatever we’re doing, making it the perfect excuse to splurge on an upgraded ticket for your next long-haul flight.

The next time you plan to go on holiday, have a sit-down and discuss whether upgrading is a possibility. It’s definitely the perfect start to your holiday, especially when your know comfort and privacy isn’t going to be a problem.  At Serendipity Tailormade all our holiday package prices are priced with an economy class ticket in mind, however, for those that want the extra luxury, we can easily upgrade you to first class at a very reasonable price. Booking an upgrade couldn’t get any easier, and we’d be sure to include any extra details you’d want the airline to know.

Making sure all our clients enjoy the holiday of their dreams is a must for us, and that includes one’s in-flight experience. If upgrading is something you would like to discuss, please feel free to get in touch and we’d happily discuss the various possibilities.
