Airbus A350-900 Lufthansa Inagural Service
Lufthansa took delivery of its first Airbus A350-900 in December 2016. The inaugural Airbus A350-900 Lufthansa service was on February 10, 2017, on the Munich to Delhi route. 3
Lufthansa’s flagship A350-900 began service to Canada between Munich and Vancouver in May of 2018. This meant that on my original Lufthansa A350-900 business class review I was one of the very first people to test it out. How does it rank? Let’s find out.
Lufthansa Business Class Seats Booking
For this Lufthansa A350 business class flight, I redeemed 60K Aeroplan points. This was before the program shifted its redemption scale and, in contrast, was excellent value. Under the new Aeroplan reward chart, this partner airline route starts at 70K points.
Airbus A350 Lufthansa Business Class Seats
Unlike other Airbus A350 900 business-class products I have tried, these were not pod seats. That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort and function of the Lufthansa A350 business class seats. What is lost in privacy is made up with practicality and experience.
Still, I would pick a flight with pod seats on a route of this duration over a Lufthansa a350 business class flight.
Our Lufthansa business class seats were at the bulkhead so it’s possible this accounted for some extra room. Either way, I could sit with my legs crossed, up, and completely flat without touching the bulkhead in front of me.
As well as being super roomy and comfortable, the seats have surprise compartments which made storing my laptop, notebook, headphones, accessory bag, shoes, and camera bag no problem. This meant I didn’t have to get up and access all these things in the overhead.Compare prices on Lufthansa Business Class flights with Skyscanner
Lufthansa A350-900 Business Class Review – Service
On my Lufthansa business class review, I found service to be tops and rival Turkish Air as a favourite for me. Staff is attentive (calling me by my last name), and always available to top up my Weizenbier or wine.
Amenities on this Lufthansa business class review also receive high marks. On top of the biggest pillows and warmest blanket on my business class experiences, the amenities pouch is full of goodies. The standards are there but the socks are a nice touch!
Another nice touch is the well-stocked serve-yourself snacks and drinks area…something I was only made aware of after my trip. My loss is your gain!
Lufthansa A350 Business Class – Food & Drink
Although nothing will top Turkish Air food in my books, Lufthansa comes oh-so-close. The dinner menu included a choice of appetizer and main courses. On top of being tasty, the food is presented in an appetizing way, something I always appreciate at 33,000 feet.
Throughout the 10-hour journey, the staff came around with snacks as well as breakfast service before landing.
Lufthansa Airbus a350-900 Business Class – Entertainment
The in-flight entertainment consists of plenty of new-release movies and TV shows as well as podcasts. The latter is a new-to-me feature as is the option to pair your own device through Bluetooth which is a nice touch. Another nice touch is the noise-cancelling headphones stored in the side seat compartment.
Lufthansa A350-900 Business Class Review – Worth the Reward Ticket Fees?
So, what are my thoughts on the Lufthansa Airbus A350-900 business class service?
Thanks to the comfy seats and great food I would be happy to fly Lufthansa business class again in the future. This is, however, my only experience flying with them and the A350-900 is the best of the best. Other aircraft may not rank as high.
That said, if there is a route with Lufthansa business class seats that are pods, I would select that or a competitor such as Turkish Airlines 787-9.
Also, it is a shame that they charge some of the highest taxes and fees when it comes to Aeroplan reward bookings, however, after my experience, I can say is *almost worth it.
