Photo review of Lufthansa flight from Toronto to Munich in Business

Date : 16 September 2016
Airline : LH- Lufthansa
Flight : LH 495
Class : Business Class
Itinerary : Toronto (YYZ) - Munich
Aircraft : A330-300

Check- in was done in YQR and my luggage was sent directly to my final destination ZRH.

unfortunately I could not enjoy the Air Canada Maple Leaf lounge in YYZ, as I was connecting from an Air Canada domestic flight and arrived late in YYZ.

Boarding :
- was a bit messy, was supposed to be 30 min before departure and no announcement was done, only some people start to board but without specific order.

I start queuing behind the business class line .

and then everybody start queuing without order,

Entering the cabin : and sat on my seat : 3D (Aisle seat) :

the business class config is 2-2-2 on LH, I found the seat comfortable but not ideal : quite tight and also the middle console is very small, you can barely put more than 2 glasses

View on 1st class where I wish to try on my next trip soon :

Choice of :
- Beef,
- Fish (Cod)
- Ravioli

I took the Fish.

Drinks menu :
I don't find the selection of champagne or wine very high standard :
LH should do an effort on providing better Champagne on board :

I skipped the cheese, as I was tired and wanted to sleep :

Dessert was an ice cream from Hagen Daz, the ice cream was good, but not very original :

Conclusion

Lufthansa offers quite a good product in business :
- Hard product : Seat configuration (2-2-2) could be better as no direct aisle access to all seats, but seat comfort is good, manage to sleep ok.
- Soft product : the quality and quantity of food was good, but the choice of Wine / Champagne could be improve.

The Munich lounges are quite nice, less busy than Frankfurt.
I prefer transferring in MUC, being less busy airport and offering the Senator Café lounge open during the week only.
