Ben Bruce is being called a Lair on Facebook for saying he does not fly First Class
We just had to respond to some of the comments we saw on Facebook today pertaining to ‘Ben Bruce’ the CEO of Silverbird group, and newly elected Senator flying First Class. From what we recall, Ben Bruce said “I Don’t FIRST CLASS”, and technically that might be true, as he never said “I only fly economy”. As a matter of fact, what we know is that he flies Business Class… but most Nigerians believe that Business class and First Class are the same, well, that may be true on some airlines, but not all.. and there is a big gap in price…
USATODAY.com had previously addressed the difference between business and first class on airlines. Here is the difference:
“On some airlines (e.g., Air Canada, Delta, Virgin Atlantic) it’s the same product. They’ve done away with first class on most international routes, and just call the product “BusinessFirst” or in the case of Virgin Atlantic, “Upper Class.” In many cases on these airlines, you’ll get a fully lie-flat bed, often with full aisle access for all seats.
Where business and first still co-exist, the main differences are bigger seats, better food and wine, more flight attendants per passenger (and thus more attentive service), better airport lounges, and, perhaps most important of all, more privacy. Many first-class seats on international routes sit all by themselves — no seat mates at all. But the price differences between business and first can be enormous, and for some people it’s just not worth the extra spend.”
So, bottom-line, Senator Bruce’s statement about never flying First Class still appears to be very accurate and valid! If you dispute our opinion, kindly leave a comment!
Here are some of the comments that we saw that triggered this write-up:
“They can talk the talk and will never walk the talk.. This guy has been doling out great economic ideas and how to govern lately forgeting the fact that he was active in the last government. He failed to advised GEJ of numerous wastage and felt his ideas should be embraced by the new government. Though they are laudable and makes a lot of sense but the time of his economic outcry or rather genius is rather late…”
“They’re all liars bro! Ole gbe, Ole gba!”
