Biz: LH or UA?
« on: July 15, 2012, 06:14:02 AM »
I currently have TLV-FRA-JFK on hold, both legs in LH biz. Just wondering... How bad is LH A380 biz? I can switch my FRA-NYC flight to UA (777-200), but that would mean a longer stop (2:50 instead of 1:50), and arriving in EWR instead of JFK (more time and $$ to get to Brooklyn). Is it worth it?

On a day flight no, on a night flight yes...

Thanks, I remember from last time you mentioned that. Just wondering how true that holds vis-a-vis UA/FRA-EWR.

Lh is not lie flat, so for a day flight to lounge and chill ok. For a night flight, it makes a big difference to ua lie flat

After flying the LH A380 business class I would tell you to definitely take the UA flight.
