Airline: Lufthansa Cityline
Aircraft: Bombardier CRJ-900
Seat maps: LufthansaSeatGuru
Seat Info: Row 2,  Seats D-F (bulkhead)
Class: Lufthansa Business Class

Seat(s): This was one of our first experiences in new “slimline” seats. The much lighter seats with much slimmer backs help increase fuel efficiency and create a little more room than the bulkier seats of old. But are they comfortable? Well it depends on where you set the bar for economy-style seats. On this short flight, I’m not sure we had time to really settle in, but didn’t notice much of a difference.

In the bulkhead seats aboard this Lufthansa Cityline CRJ-900, you’ve got pretty severe legroom restriction. No one will recline into you, but if you’re tall you might want to avoid these very front seats (1A-C, 2D-2F). There’s also a tray table built into the center, so hip space might be affected. Next time I’d likely choose the rows behind the bulkhead seats.

See our gallery of pics from this flight.

If you’re not familiar with typical intra-European business class you might ask why we’re in economy seats to begin with. Here you’ll get a coach seat but with the seat next to it open. On planes like this with a 2-2 configuration, that means a good amount of personal space.

Tech/Connectivity/Entertainment: It’s a old fashioned as modern flight gets when it comes to in-flight entertainment. In-flight magazine anyone?

Food: If you like a good meat and cheese plate like I do, you might appreciate the express meals served up on the shorter flights these planes fly. Sesame Grissini with Parma Ham,

Wild Boar Salami and an assortment of peppers and cheese made up the entree with a yogurt mousse dessert waiting for dessert. It’s portion controlled indulgence.

Service: It’s high-functioning Lufthansa efficiency at work. Everything was timed perfectly with drinks and snacks delivered at the right times. There were a few smiles but it was mostly business with this crew.

Rating: 3 hops (of 5).

Route Flown for this review: Munich (MUC) – Zurich (ZRH)

How we got em’: This was a large sliver of a Star Alliance award itinerary using US Airways Dividend Miles. The gang at PointsPros found a great  all-business class trip using just a handful of  miles to Asia (via Europe). Note: US Airways is no longer in the Star Alliance but as part of it’s merger with American Airlines is now a part of OneWorld.
