Flying can sometimes be absolute torture for some of us with long excruciating airport security lines, to crying babies, to sick passengers freely passing on their germs to others. A lot of us find it very difficult to travel unless we have an opportunity to shift to business class, or that much money to afford a business class seat. There is no doubt with the fact that business class passengers are served better food, provided better facilities, and have better leg space and most important of all, no one will ever judge you for snoring or sleeping with an open mouth!
