I think the short haul business class experience has to either improve or die. The current offering is a joke no matter who you fly with and the only thing you can say about it is that it’s better than they offer in Y.
I’ve heard the LH story about a new cabin and goodness, they need to do something about the NEK seats. Mrs HT and I are travelling to ADB with them in a couple of weeks and I’m not looking forward to the experience which is at least in two parts with a change at MUC.
The last couple of times I’ve been on LH short haul there have been a maximum of five people in C often spread over seven or eight rows.
