My Thoughts on Lufthansa's New Business Class

图片
A few days ago, Lufthansa has revealed their new Business Class product for their Boeing 777Xs, This product looks way more superior than then current Business Class Product.
The product itself looks pretty good, with direct aisle for every seat. However I noticted that this product looks similar to United Polaris which revealed last year.

China Southern is replacing A330-300 to Tokyo Haneda

图片
I know this could be both good or bad news given that China Southern's 787 is cramped in Economy even though is newer than most of their A330. Business Class feature the same product except that some of their new A330s have staggered Business Class like their 777 and removing First Class.

Per Routesonline today, China Southern is replacing their A330-300 with their B787-8 for CZ385/386, the 737 flight remains the same. This is going to effect from 29Nov.

Thai A350 Route Update in Winter17

图片
Most people know that Thai uses widebodies flying nearly all of their international flights. Unlike Singapore Airlines, they still own some narrowbodies, operated as Thai Smile. This leaves passenger having a hard time knowing which Thai aircraft is the best. Per Routesonline, Thai is planning to use their A350 on various routes.


Here are the changes
Bangkok – Denpasar TG431/432, replacing 777-300/-300ER in W17
Bangkok – Seoul Incheon TG658/659, replacing 747-400 in W17
Bangkok – Tokyo Narita TG642/643, replacing 777-300/-300ER in W17 

While Thai's 777-300ERs has a great onboard hard product there 300s don't, so Denpasar and Tokyo Narita is a simple upgrade. However for the 747-400s while they are flying short routes eg: Singapore - Bangkok, they marketed their First class as Business Class with Business Class service, I am not really sure what Thai market there Seoul 747's First Class.

Boarding through door L1 Scoot Biz
For this flight, Scoot allow Economy passenger using door L1 even though they also opened door L2, I think that they are trying to squeeze boarding time a little bit, but this is not a smart idea for a traditional airline.

This flight is scheduled to depart at 21:30PM. I arrived at the airport at around 6:30PM, after check-in, I asked the manager is there any hot food inside the "King Lounge" unfortunately this lounge doesn't have any hot food. I went to the restaurant near the Check-in desk, is reasonably priced per Chinese Airport standards.

This lounge is located next to China Eastern lounge, which some hot food option available.

This lounge has very good interior compare to what you usually expect from a domestic First Class lounge.
Shenzhen Air called their lounge King Lounge, all of them expect Wuxi have hot food, which the reception staff told us that they are requesting it. It will be my absolute First choice anyways within China domestic.
Infront of the reception, there is a Shenzhen Air B747, which is totally unbelievable!
This lounge has a variety of Tea and drinks selection per Chinese Lounge standard. There is also a designated kids area in this lounge, which is totally winning the …
