Best Business ClassBack to Forum

I am going to Delhi from Florence in April and want to make sure I travel in the best business class. As of now I am leaning towards Lufthansa and Swiss but I’m open to any.
Thanks for the help.

I’d go for LH via MUC. Decent C class product, reliable and a decent time of arrival in DEL, around 07:40 local. Return in daytime leaving DEL around 09:30 arriving in FLR around 17:00.
MUC is a very decent transfer airport, much better than FRA.27 Dec 2012
I don’t like the Luftie seats – they are the old angled ‘wedgie’ seats still on Airbus arranged in 2-2-2 and quite squishy; whereas Swiss have a 180degree flat seat, arranged in 1-2-1, then 2-2-1, which means on Swiss if you get a seat on the right of the cabin, or alternating left side rows, the seats are all singles, with lots of space (checkout seat plans/seatguru)
Also like the Swiss service, usually efficient and personable28 Dec 2012
LH is flying these days the 748i non stop from FRA to delhi with brand new lie flat business class seats.
So I recommend taking that flight over going through MUC and you might end up flying on an old crappy C class seat that’s at the end of its cycle.28 Dec 2012
Finnair have a good flat seat on their 330’s. These threads have been a little “Finnair quiet” over the past few months….. as I am writing this I wonder if they fly to Delhi!!
Worth looking at Finnair..28 Dec 2012
The 747-8 is the reason I am leaning towards Lufthansa. Therefore, Munich is out of the question. I want comparisons between the LH 747-8 which flies from FRA and the Swiss. Thanks for the replies everyone.29 Dec 2012
