For a short period of time Continental had information on their new BusinessFirst seat up on their website. This was confirmed by Continental to have gone up too early…but they can’t take back what’s already been saved!
BusinessFirst is arguably the best class of service available between the US and Israel.
The rumor is that the new seats will be in a 2-2-1 configuration on the widebodies and a 2-1 configuration on the narrowbodies.
The seats will be completely lie-flat.
Looking to use miles to fly in Continental’s BusinessFirst class to Israel? It’s 100K directly from Continental, but just 80K if booked via Alitalia, which is a Starwood transfer partner at 20,000 Starwood=25,000 Alitalia.
