I think this Sky-Chef product is one of the reasons why Biz people choose to fly with OS despite the fact that the Seat-equipment in OS B767 is not up to BA etc. standards.
Again for all the Detail-nerds: Flight was OS 087 VIE-JFK Equipment was the B767-300ER OE-LAE Malaysia.
And for the Terror-conspiracy theorists out there: Yes, a non-Airline Employee (the cook works for Attila Dogudans Do&Co, not for OS) opens the cockpit door inflight on an US-bound flight without being protected, so a Terrorist could possibly enter the cockpit etc.....but as the "people in the know" know that the Sky-Marshall onboard is courtesy of the Austrian "Cobra" special force...until today the only special force worldwide who ended a plane hijacking still inflight.
The Austrian "Cobra"-Special force is highly regarded worldwide, even in the USA. In global competitions, which are held regularly, they win most of the time.

Quite a character and the typical Austrian "Schmaeh".
Yes, whenever there is an opportunity I use OS C on long distance and one of the reasons is the catering. They are simply a tick better than others and Do&Co does a fine job.
Comparing it with BA - OK, you have your own cubicle on BA but the seats on OS are quite alright and the food is better by lenghts. Even better than what BA offers in F. Plus, OS serves good wines and a "Kracher" as digestif (they don't always have it) tops it up.

BD have onboard chefs in long haul biz class too. Very nice food and if you don't fancy anything on the menu they will do their best to russle up something else for you. So looks like LH will have lots of inflight chefs on their payroll soon

I flew in Amadeus Class (NG/OS has the Kitchen instead of the First so it is basically a C/F-Class mix) back in 2002 when the flights were still under NG-Flight Numbers to KUL and back. The meal service lasted for almost 4 hours.
In between I flew KUL-SYD and back in F Class, the MH FA's and the seat were better than at NG/OS....but the food was much, much better onboard Lauda Air/Austrian Airlines.
