How to Fly the World’s Best Business Class for Less Than Coach.

The secret isn’t always in the airline’s loyalty program.

On such airlines as Emirates and Singapore, you have to book into lavish first-class cabins to get enclosed suites, made-to-order meals, and name-brand pajamas. On others, these top-end perks exist one notch down, in business.

Airlines such as Qatar Airways and Delta are installing next-generation suite-style seats in that tier; American and United pamper passengers with hotel-style bedding; and still others, like Air France and Japan Airlines, serve menus created by locally renowned chefs.

Sometimes, that level of service is reflected in the airfare, with transoceanic business-class tickets topping $10,000 in some cases. But if you have airline miles or credit-card points that transfer to frequent-flier programs, they’re bookable for less than the cost of a coach seat. Here’s how to do just that for the best business-class cabins in the skies.
