How The Airlines Pamper Business Class Travelers
For many reasons many airlines have been trying to please the passengers who pay bigger bucks
and fly in the business class as well as first class seats. The business class airlines are constantly
taking steps to court the business class traveler as profit margins dip either due to fuel costs or
any other economic factors. The airlines would get profited from long haul business class
passengers as the discounted tickets are very rare in such flights. Moreover the average leisure
traveler would only go for the discounted airfares in business or first class flights.
