Lufthansa Munich Newark Business Class Flight Review is part of the Punxsutawney TPOL Trip Report.
I booked a flight from Munich to Newark using precisely 62,760 Lifemiles in business on Lufthansa. The last time I flew Lufthansa long-haul was my inaugural business class flight on points in 2012 (see Angle Flat Lufthansa: My First Points Flight Review). Back then I was blown away by ice cream on a plane. Fast forward to 2021, those tricks do not impress me. And neither did this basic flight from Munich to Newark.
There’s plenty of space in the business-class cabin, especially when sitting by the window.
Whether upright or lie-flat, I was comfortable.
While it will not make the list for best airline champagne (see Get Ready to Takeoff: The World’s Best Champagne), in the midst of Covid nonsense, it was nice to see that it was served.
It was also nice to see an amenities kit with a mask as the featured item.
I was impressed by the selection of food. I traded my original order with Ms. TPOL.
I take it back. I am still impressed with ice cream on a plane.
This flight was boring. The question is why it was boring. Have I taken too many business class flights that I require a silent disco to come away impressed (see Emirates A380 Silent Disco!)? Perhaps, Germans do things so well that I take the regimented routine for granted. Or, as I have said before, business class simply can’t compare to first (see Cathay A350 HKG-BKK: I Miss First Already). What I do know is that I found the experience to be basic. Maybe that’s a good thing. I have no idea.
