Best Business Class In Latin America

Sat Oct 14, 2006 4:46 am

Which latin american airline has the best business class? You can consider in-flight and ground service, seats, IFE, cabin ambiance, lounges, etc

My choices are (in no particular order):

1 - Aeromexico
2 - LAN

have only tried AR Club Condor, but they're very good. I'll get back to you in a month after I've tried CU in Club Tropicale for a comparison.....

I haven't personally tried any of the airlines, but LAN has/is coming out with a new business class seat that goes completely flat, with no angle to the floor.
You can have a look at the LAN website

I recently flew LA from SCL to MEX in their new business class seat. To be honest I didn´t like it that much. Although it truly is a lie-flat seat with no angle, I found it to be extremelly narrow and felt a bit claustrophobic !! The problem with this also is that you feel that the guy sitting next to you is very, very close so the feeling is rather uncomfortable.

I had many expectations about this seat but in the end I would say I am dissatisfied with it. I haven´t tried AM new business seats in their 777 but I hope they are more comfortable.

Without any doubt, the recently disappeared Varig.

I remember to fly from MEX to SAO in a 763 of the ex-Brazilian flag airline. What a great levels of service and attention.

Now, that I don't know anything about new services my second choice is COPA. Nice aircrafts the newests E90's!!!!

I�ve never flown them but I wouldn�t expect too much of them

I'm not either. It was a sarcastic post on my part... As long as they serve mojitos I don't mind...

Hola!

I've only flown AR; and their service was outstanding. Cabin layout is a little bit old-fashioned but both attention and food were great, to say the least! Special mention to wines, what else can you expect when in Argentina?
