Taking care of business at 35,000 feet is no easy feat — unless you're flying in one of these ultra-plush business class cabins. We had business-travel road warriors and big shots tell us what they think are the poshest, cushiest cabins in the air.

I'm surprised United or American Airlines didn't make this list ! Must have been an oversight ?

This is reason I don't fly American or United.  Their business class seats are so outdated.  Untied is finally converting some.  But if you are not lucky, you are totally screwed in the business class.  If you are paying the same amount, would you fly United.  Hell no.

Snicker all you want, but US Airways' Envoy "Suite" to Europe is quite comfortable and relatively easy to upgrade to from coach.

I make a number of business trips to Africa in a year.  I always travel by Ethiopian Airlines, business class, no matter where in Africa I go.  Although it does not have an on board chef, it is among the best business class flights I take anywhere.  You wouldn't think it, but just about everyone I know who travels to Africa on this airlines raves about it.  The only draw back is that it only leaves from Washington DC.  No problem for me since my office is based there.  Even though, I would certainly consider taking a connecting flight to Washington DC and then travelling to Africa and the middle east by Ethiopian.  It is that good.

And no, I do not own stock in that airlines.

Too bad these airlines don't fly domestically. How many of us can go to Korea or Singapore ?Those airlines don't fly to NY or FL from here.

Where are the pics of the tight-enough-to-wear seats that the rest of moochers get to squirm into on domestic airlines? How about the $15 soggy sandwiches sold only to those who have credit cards?

Good food and other comforts are nice, but getting there QUICKLY is still the most important thing.
