What should I do? – First Time Domestic First Class Flyer
I’ll be taking my first-ever domestic first class flight from BOS-IND later this week. I’m super excited to experience non-economy travel and would like to capitalize on the experience (i.e. make the most of it checking off all of the premium travel boxes – lounge, priority check-in, etc.). As such, what can I do at Logan? What should I do? Does anyone have a general strategy (get there x hours before, do a first, then b, and end with c, etc.)? Thanks for all of the help!
Which airline are you flying?
Not trying to kill your excitement, but domestic first class unfortunately doesn’t come with many extra services at the airport.
You definitely get priority check-in, which should have a much shorter line. If you don’t have TSA PreCheck, I believe Logan still has a priority security line as well to help push you through quickly.
Domestic First Class also doesn’t come with lounge access :(. If you have an AMEX Platinum card, you could access the SkyClub before your flight. But that’s a perk of the credit card, not flying first class

If you want the lounge experience and are willing to buy a day pass to the Delta Sky Club it’s $59, which is a lot. Keep in mind, that the food offerings in the morning are not great. If you’re there later in the day, you fare better. Also keep in mind that if the lounge is crowded, they may not sell you a pass. I’ve used both lounges in Terminal A and find the one at gate 18 better. In my opinion, a lot depends on what time of day you’re flying. For me, an early morning flight isn’t worth hanging out in the lounge or buying a meal. Later in the day, maybe a nice lunch or dinner at Legal Seafood would would be preferable to the $59 lounge access.
