I've tried the one from SK but was thinking I should try the one from UA while they're flying CPH-IAD for SK!  Smile
How long will they be doing that btw?

I'm a UA 1K and SAS is one of my favorite airlines. I especially like the self-serve espresso machine (since I'm a coffee addict), the staff are good and CPH airport is one my favorites. The UA Seat definitely has more recline and more overall room than the SK seat. The service is good, but not as good as SK I would say. It depends on what you prefer; a slightly better seat or a slightly better service. Overall a toss up!

UA C seat over SK C anyday. UA C+ (60" pitch) is the most comfortable traditional C seat I have sat in.

What about Lufthansas "new" business seat? I saw some heavily discounted prices from MUC to BKK around winter holidays in the end of feb.
Should one go with SK that is already fully booked or with LH?
The MUC-BKK run is 346 equipment.
At least in Business they have PTV...
Comments are appreciated!

LH i guess. I've been in SQ/CX/LX lie-flats, hated LX but SQ/CX were very comfortable.

How much is this fare? Ex-finland or MUC?

I got a fare ARN-MUC-BKK return in business booking class D for 1890 euros incl taxes. Not bad in my opinion,and nowadays you get very cheap tickets with Blue1 from many cities in Finland to ARN for less than 40 euros one way..!
