Die Lufthansa Business Class im Airbus A319 kann nicht wirklich als Luxus bezeichnet werden. In den meisten Fällen lohnt sich die Lufthansa Business Class auf Kurzstreckenflügen innerhalb Europas aufgrund des Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnisses nicht. Als Anschlussflug unseres Miles & More Prämientickets aus Dubai sind wir die kurze Strecke von Frankfurt nach Leipzig geflogen.

Since we arrived late from Zurich, we had to do quite a sprint from bus arrival A-S-W to Gate B10 with a pram, child seat and our three-year-old son. Anyone who knows Frankfurt Airport knows that this is quite a long way. Finally we made it thanks to the delay of the arriving Airbus A319.

Boarding at Gate B10 finally began with a delay of more than an hour. The reason for this was that the Airbus A319 from Düsseldorf arrived late. We were the first guests on board and were able to place the child seat in peace. As with almost every flight, we were asked whether the child seat was approved for the aircraft.

Lufthansa Business Class A319 – cabin and seat

As already mentioned in the introduction, Lufthansa Business Class on the Airbus A319 is not a luxury. These are the same seats and 3+3 seating as in Economy Class. The only difference is that the middle seat is always kept free.

On the way to Leipzig today there were five rows of seats in Lufthansa Business Class. Separated by a curtain, Economy Class began from the sixth row.

On the short flight to Leipzig, there was only a small snack in Lufthansa Business Class on the Airbus A319. A cold platter consisting of a shrimp and a roast beef roll was served. There was also an antipasti skewer with pesto. The dessert was a vanilla cream with rhubarb compote.

Unfortunately, Lufthansa's Business Class offer on short-haul flights is not always worthwhile. The cabin and seat are identical to Economy Class and only the vacant middle seat makes the difference. When it comes to service, it always depends very much on the staff whether the business class flight is an experience or not.
