Leaked: Continental’s New BusinessFirst Seat!

DDMS IconNever Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on Facebook

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.

Thanks for the info Dan!


Good luck finding any availability


Availability is not so bad-I just booked a peak season BF seat for someone yesterday. It just requires patience and constant checking to find seats for your dates.


Any one know when the availability of these seats might start? I have a business first flight in two weeks. I guess no chance by then, huh?


dan- thanks for all the great info. i was wondering how i would go about booking it through alitalia. i have to call them & tell them i want a mileage reward ticket on continental !?? Then transfer the miles from amex into an alitalia acct?
