Lufthansa A-340 Business/First Class Seats

Sun Aug 05, 2012 2:47 pm

Hello from Brazil, this is my first post on airliners.net and I will try to keep it short. I want to travel from São Paulo to Europe next november and would like to give LUFTHANSA a try. I 'd like to travel in Business or maybe First, from GRU nonstop to Munich. Normally, it is operated by an A-340-300, but for november, it seems it was shifted to an A-340-600. I 've read some pretty bad reviews on LH A-340 Business class seats, but I believe they are in process of retroffiting those planes with their new product. Now the questions: what can I expect to find on their A-340-600 Business, a new full-flat seat? And about First, what's about the chances to get the new product? What´s the reason the A-340-300 was replaced by the A-340-600 in november only? I will appreciate any input on the subject, thank you/obrigado!

There is no new Business Class on any A340 yet, so no lie-flat seats yet. Your chances of catching the new First are more likely on the -600 than on the -300. The old First is apparently a bit dated. Here's an overview which planes have the new First:

Thank you very much LH422! I will consider that information to carefully make a choice, this leaves very few options with fully-flat bed on Business from Brazil to Europe: British Airways, Iberia and Swiss. AF/AZ/CA/JJ/LH/TP, all of them offers an ANGLED lie flat seats on Business... Hope LH will install a new product soon, they are very well-known for their quality onboard service but heard many bad things about the seats...

Singapore flies to BCN from GRU. Also, depending on where in Europe you are heading, Turkish Airlines might be worth looking at.

Oi, bom dia.
If I was you, I'd go for LX. 100% flat in C guaranteed and ZRH is a nice airport to chnage planes.

I flew TLV-FRA-GRU and back in April in C on LH. While it was definitely v nice, the seats are old and on the way back to AirShow didn't work in the whole plane. Annoying on a long flight, though this oculd happen everywhere.
