Suites or Seats?

First class airline seats have come a long way in recent years, and many are now classified as “suites” instead of just first class seats. The difference? Effectively, for many airlines this means that each seat is contained in a higher-sided pod/cubicle, and often a sliding door is added, and the term “suite” can be applied. There is often no difference in seat or bed comfort, and it is largely a case of increased privacy being available.
