I must say that flights from East Coast to Europe are simply too short. By the time you eat and get settled in for sleep, you only have about 3 hours to sleep before breakfast. The flight is only 7 hours, which is only 1 hour longer than a flight from the East Coast of the USA to California. Ideal is California to Europe, which is a 10 hour flight. That gives you a nice solid 7 or so hours of sleep during the flight.

Another fantastic video report! Keep them coming.

I am in complete agreement. unless my needs require NYC I try to get to another location further into America even if it means a longer layover, or hope that the pre-departure lounge offers a good enough pre-meal service / spread so I can get on, relax, sleep, wake up to breakfast and either relax with a movie or get some work done. can't stand the East coast-Europe flights (going back isn't as bad because you land about the time you departed)
I digress... Thank you for the report, I didn't use to be a fan of video reports, but im definetly coming around to them now.
i like that there is some humor thrown in- "throne" seat! (no pun intended)
If it's a night service I would pick the isle only side table seat because the armrest goes down by the window providing a a touch more wiggle room without fear of going into the traffic lane, and if it was a day service i would pick the 'throne' seat for the extra work space! my 2cents

The 'Dine and recline' option looks very interesting for these shorter hops as well. I guess quite a bit of pax choose it.

Try LH lounge in T1, which they've renovated. Much better atmosphere as less people and a proper (champagne) bar!
Food and snack by Do&Co but not really heavy. Still, you will eat your dinner on board.
It must be nightmare going back to fly domestic NYC-SFO! I hate US domestic travel

As usual, another great TR! LX business is certainly very nice. I have only experienced the older product, back in 2006 on the SIN-BKK-SIN sector.
As good as it looks, I hope one day you get to experience (and do a TR of course) of SQ's Business Class!

Another great video, Sfflyer123!
Looks like you had a really nice flight with LX in J Class. I'd say it definitely sticks out to being one of the best Business Class products out there. Food looks to be really good, and the seat looks awesome!
Looking forward to your next video!

Nice report. Thanks for sharing. What is that dessert?
Also, I am shocked at the breakfast ... looks like something LH would serve!
|Quoting Coal (Reply 9):|
Sacrilege! ( I am the ultimate diehard SQ fan). I found the seat uncomfy only because it is so wide, but not because it was hard at all. I also never found it fussy at all to turn into a bed. I really like the space at the sides.
I'm surprised you didn't like the food, but I am gonna take a guess that you didn't Book The Cook? The lobster thermidor and the beef tournedos are fantastic!
