Business class is a type of cabin class available on many commercial airlines that offers more comfort and comes at a higher cost than economy class. The range of complimentary services and amenities varies across airlines but typically includes
- access to business class airport lounges,
- priority boarding,
- high-quality food and drink while onboard,
- larger and more comfortable seating,
- travel kits, and so on.
Traditionally, business class offered an intermediate level of service between economy class and the most luxurious first class, but today, many airlines don’t provide first-class seating, so business class is the highest tier.
Some railroads also offer business-class seating, which is usually in separate, more comfortable railcars.
