LH Business Class
No headrest and an an ultra-slim economy-sized seat…pure luxury. – Seat 2D in Business Class aboard a Lufthansa A321

Seat(s): Like with many other European airlines, Lufthansa Business Class inside Europe is barely an upgrade.  The seats offer no clear advantage over economy except for a guaranteed empty seat next to you and seatbacks are slim. So slim, in fact, that our friends at Australian Business Traveler did an entire piece on them. But this seat, 2D offers bonus room for your legs thanks to space created by a short bulkhead wall that only obstructs the stretch of the window seat. You’ll have to angle your legs just slightly to get around it, but not so much that it’s much of a nuisance. Similar legroom is a benefit of seat 1C.

Although the seats are wafer-thin, you’d hardly notice it. Padding might look insufficient, but so far the reviews have been reasonably positive and our experience (although short) was a comfortable one.

Tech/Connectivity: Nein. Business in Europe is done with pen, paper, sweat and wine. No need for outlets or internet.

Lufthansa A321 Business Class Meal
Lufthansa preaches portion control. – Light breakfast in Business Class aboard an A321.

Food: A light but very nice assortment of meat and cheese was served on this short hop. Yogurt and fresh fruit accompanied the meal served in Lufthansa stamped dinnerware.

Service: Our flight attendant up front was also helping quite a bit back in economy so he seemed to be hurrying the entire flight (as evidenced in the video review). Otherwise service was friendly and prompt.

Rating: 3 “hops” (of 5).

Route Flown (for this review): FRA (Frankfurt am Main) – MUC (Munich).

How we got em’: This was part of a larger Star Alliance award itinerary using US Airways Dividend Miles. Our friends at PointsPros found a great multi-segment all-business class trip using minimal miles to Asia via Europe. Unless the price of an upgrade to Lufthansa Business Class is unusually low it may be best to put up with economy. Seats aren’t any wider and other than the ones shown here, don’t offer extra legroom.

    Great to see you put the route flown! Helps me have a better idea to what aircraft may operate that route.
