After a lovely flight on Oman Air from Frankfurt to Muscat, I had a four hour connection in Muscat before my connecting flight on Oman Air’s A330.
There’s not a business class product in the world I’ve been wanting to try more than Oman Air’s. Ironically it’s their old business class product I’ve been wanting to fly. Oman Air is in the process of introducing a new business class product on the A330 (the same as on the 787), and while it’s excellent, there’s something so special about their old product.
Their old business class product basically looks like an industry standard first class product from about a decade ago. There’s something charming about it, which feels like a step back in time, in a good way. Oman Air introduced direct aisle access from every seat in business class long before any other airline did.
I was thrilled to finally sample the product before it’s discontinued. Beyond the actual product, there was something I loved about flying Oman Air as such. They’re not really a mainstream airline, so flying with them just feels like something special. As much as I enjoy Emirates or Cathay Pacific first class, there’s something so enjoyable about trying an airline for the first time.
With that in mind, below are 10 pictures from my 5hr15min Oman Air flight from Muscat and Bangkok. A full trip report will of course be following shortly.
So, who wants to fly Oman Air’s business class?
