Re: The fall of Robert Mugabe: Potential Impact on Air Zimbabwe & Zimbabwean Aviation

I just booked a friend in Harare a flight to get out of there. I suggested yesterday that he book to get out today (the 15th), but he wanted to see how things shake out. I don't know how the situation is around the airport, but flights seem to be operating out of the country. From what I am told, th...

I've only ever flown LH's premium economy, but it's pretty great. Especially if you're willing and able to pay the $600 to bump yourself up to Business (eg on FRA-IAD).

Even without paying for a bump, it's excellent, I've slept very well on ORD/IAH-FRA/MUC on the 748, A380, and A346.
