Flew 1st class for the first time last week.....
Did one leg 12 hours long haul and 2 hours short haul.
Now long haul it was worth it. Completely diffrent travel experience. Great seats, food, service ect. Would pay again.
But I am scratching my head on what the point of it was short haul? The seats where no diffrent except maybe 1 inch more leg room and the food was I guess ok, but not anything special, certainly not worth the extra £150.........
Was I missing something?

I suppose the question of whether it's worth it depends on the plane, your personal finance and your ability to cope with the annoyances of air travel.
I've gone SFO to DIA (2.5 hours) first class on a Boeing 777 several times and I have no complaints. The seats recline fully into beds and I get all the alcohol I can drink in 150 minutes.
For me, though, any ol' window seat will do.
