I just had the chance to fly in the business class of Fiji Airways, and it was amazing. Since I know many are booked on the Los Angeles to Nadi route due to the amount of award availability we have seen, I wanted to give you my initial impressions.
The airline has two A350-900s, which are used for the main Los Angeles to Nadi route. I don't know if the only one who likes the livery is me. It is easy but enjoyable.
Most of the interiors of the A350s were handed over to the airline by Hong Kong Airlines. The business class seats on the A350 are excellent. The cabin feels generic with white and cream color finishes, but the pillows, blankets, and headrests give it a bit of personality.
I had flown the A330 business class before and it didn't have aisle access. It is obvious that this is a huge improvement.
Beyond the seat, what stood out to me was how well-rounded the experience was, all while offering some lovely local Fijian flair that reminds you that you are going to paradise.
What was the experience on the flight? There were drinks and snacks after the flight.
There were several choices for dinner. I had a sweet potato and coconut soup and a side salad with cherry tomatoes and avocados.
I had a delicious vegetable curry for the main course.
There was a dessert that was delicious.
The breakfast was served before the plane touched down.
I always enjoy watching the tail camera on the A350 because it was dark for most of the flight. There is free wi-fi on the A350.
There is a lounge at the airport. The airline is a partial oneworld airline member Premium passengers can use a lounge.
Is there another airline that will let you choose between the Star Alliance or oneworld lounge? That is pretty great.
Business class is not the same as Qsuites or The Room. The product impressed me on at least two fronts.
Keep up the good work. It's refreshing to see a government-owned airline do well, and drive a lot of tourism to the country.
The new business class experience of the A350 is better than ever. This is an excellent product to one of the most beautiful places in the world. I would highly recommend it if you have the chance.
