Business class travel

Quantas first introduced business or Executive class travel in 1979 as an intermediate class between First and Economy. The class carries with it some of the amenities and advantages of First Class. The class has evolved in many airlines for full fare paying economy passengers, essentially as a guarantee of a vacant adjacent seat if possible and of a free alcohol service. The class carries different names according its airline, and can be seen as Executive Class or Connoisseur Class in some airlines. Business Class travel has evolved over the years, and on many domestic and international airlines it has actually replaced First Class.

Many European carriers offer a Business Class travel consisting of enhanced economy seating that carries a better service. There may be a curtain to separate Business from Economy class, based on demand, but the seats are in the same cabin. Some airlines such as Lufthansa and British Airways use convertible seats that seat three people across in economy, or adjust with a lever to become two seats with a half seat length between them for business class use. Business class travel demands greater comfort and better amenities than economy class, and most international flights offer fully reclining seats that are not available to economy.

Business class has started to disappear from some short and medium haul routes, to be replaced with full fare economy and discount economy. On these routes, the seats are the same for all passengers, and only the flexibility of the ticket and the food and beverage service differs.
