Lufthansa or Tyrolean
« on: June 14, 2013, 11:22:27 AM »
I have the option of flying Lufthansa (newark to tlv) or Tyrolean (Jfk to tlv).
I'd be flying business either way - but Tyrolean has shorter stopover and is out of jfk (always easier).
I know Lufthansa is supposed to be excellent, but if there's no diff, I'd fly Tyrolean...
anyone flow both and can help me decide?
Thanks!

Definitely Austrian if you get the new business.

OS is infinitely better than LH. It will be a lieflat seat from JFK to VIE

You're sure they've finished outfitting all the planes on the JFK-VIE route?

It's one plane, yes.

thanks so much! (the austria-tlv leg is mixed cabin option - so economy) but I still think it's worth it to try out Austrian Air on the longer leg.

The business between vie tlv is basically economy so no difference between os and lh.
But the flight out of nyc os and the new business product is much better than lh j

LH is not lieflat, not to Frankfort or Dusseldorf?

So why did everyone advise the OP not to take LH? Isnt the Frankfurt flight a 747 either from jfk or newark? (unless he wasn't referring to Frankfurt)
