Ok, I'm caught up in a predicament. I'll be flying VIE-JFK in about two weeks, and I have to use up my FF miles before they expire. I have a choice, I can either fly Business Class with Lufthansa (via Frankfurt) or direct with Austrian Airlines, but I can't decide which offers better service. Does anyone have experience flying Biz with the two airlines? How is it? Which do you rate better? Who's jealous of me?

I AM jealous, but I cannot help you since I have no experience on OS C class. I´d fly LH on one way and OS on the other. No wait, I´d fly via FRA both ways in order to get one additional flight. Or I´d fly VIE--MUC-JFK-VIE to have NG, LH and OS all in one trip.

... and if it´s not Fly Smart, I´d fly with SQ FRA-JFK on one way.

Well, I got smart a while ago and flew SQ back from JFK on a LH ticket, and wow, what a difference that made! I think they wisened up to this though, for last month I tried booking LH and flying SQ and they told me it was no longer possible. Or maybe they just said that to discourage me from taking the SQ flight.

It was actually never possible if they go strictly by the book. Of course they might make mistakes sometimes, especially because some of the telephone agents are not very smart. I managed to persuade one to book me onto an LH flight operated by AY. When I wanted to check in, I found out they had rebooked me on a later "real" LH flight because they had noticed their mistake - damn.

@Hepkat

LH's business product is okay, yet not excellent, especially compared to BA's oder SQ's B.class.

But you'll get a comfortable seat, acceptable (for bclass) seat pitch, ptv and fine selection of meals and in most cases a very friendly service.
Inflight entertainment is good, yet again doesn't match with the ones mentioned above.

I personally haven't flown OS yet, so I am not going to judge it.

Enjoy your trip!

I have flown LH's Biz class 2x from FRA-JFK. Once on 742 and once on 744. I thought it was pretty good. Service was good, IFE was ok, the only thing I didn't like was seat pitch. Obviously better than coach but its a little awkward to get out of your seat if the seat in front of you is all the way back. On the other hand I'm 6'5" so it may not be a big deal to you. I thought their biz class was very nice, but I cannot compare to SQ or Austrian as I have not flown them.

Hepkat,
unfortunately i have never flown LH/Biz across the pond, but i can highly recommend OS' Grand Class. At www.aua.com you can check out their Service, inflight entertainment and seat configuration.
Well and not to forget it´s nonstop......
