    Nice piece! I also like your article on the new LH 748 business class. The foot space issue will be interesting, but overall can only be better than what they have now!

    This is a good article; one of the better ones on the topic of "business class."

    The author, John (who I do not know personally), also has a nice little blog with some interesting travel photos that he publishes daily. He sticks with the same theme/location for a few days, then moves on. I enjoy seeing his posts.

    Aw, thanks guys! I'm so glad you like our stuff.

    statustraveller, one of the awesome things about AusBT's philosophy is that the more pics we can get in, we do. That trite old chestnut about one being worth a thousand words is a trite old chestnut because it's true.

    downhillcrasher, I totally agree -- I loathe Lufthansa's old J with the passion of a thousand aching knees, and this new one is nothing but an opportunity missed. People make the "but LH is cheaper than their competition in J!" argument all the time, but (a) not all the competition, (b) I know of very few travel policies that say "well, okay, if you can get LH J you can go J, but otherwise you're in Y, (c) WTF footsie.

    NYBanker, I'm totally stoked that you enjoy my blog. It's a total labour of love for me. I love sharing the world through my eyes, and being a travel journo I seriously get to see the world! ;)

    This is astounding! It is the first review I have seen with which I fully agree. I also learned a number of things I did not knwo, sop that is even better.
