Happy (last) weekend of summer! I’ve just ticketed and confirmed my reservation for travel in Austrian B767 Business Class! I’m super excited. The flight is in a few weeks, and I’m really looking forward to flying with Austrian again.
I originally had booked SWISS First for this trip, however I quickly realised that Austrian Business Class is a better option for the time being, because of a few things: SWISS’ schedule wasn’t ideal and I would have to spend a night either in Zurich or Los Angeles (which I didn’t want to do), and I also couldn’t get the ideal route I wanted due to Miles & More routing rules. So I’ve decided to save SWISS First for November, when I will be flying to Europe (I’ve already ticketed it).
So, Austrian B767 Business Class is now ticketed and confirmed. And I’m super excited because Austrian Airlines has one of the world’s best Business Class. They only have B767s and B777s as part of their long-haul fleet, and the B767 Business Class is a bit more unique since every passenger has direct aisle access (as the 767 is smaller than the 777).
Austrian’s flights are catered by DO&CO (which also cater Lufthansa’s First Class Lounges in Frankfurt), so the food is going to be delicious. Austrian also has a separate coffee menu, with over 10 different types of coffee.
I’ve flown with Austrian once before, from Frankfurt to Vienna in Business Class and I was mostly happy with their service, and the meals were absolutely delicious. The coffee selection was great, and Austrian also has nice lounges in Vienna.
It has been a few years since I’ve flown transatlantic Business Class (the majority of my transatlantic travel has been in First Class), so I’m looking forward to seeing how the whole experience is. Also, Austrian’s Business Class ad makes me really excited:
