I've truely been impressed with intra-Europe Biz class, however I prefer my legroom and wider seat than a classy meal on a flight, to be honest. I've been shocked to see Swiss feed us on FRA-ZRH and even ZRH-GVA!
But at least in America, you board from a gate -> jetway -> airplane and don't waste time on an airport transit bus. Nothing like boarding an hour early to be in a bus, drive 20 minutes to your plane, and then sit there for another 20 since the crew wasn't ready to board.
If we're still comparing US and Europe, ya'll also win on the wine! <3 <3 <3
