Back in business class, the seat is flat, but at a noticeable angle, 30ish degrees, to the floor (more detail in my MUC-NRT post). It is more than six feet long and has decent, but not great, padding. Each seat has its own video on demand system with a mix of music, movies, and tv shows. A bottled water and amenity kit are waiting at each seat when boarding. Lufthansa knows this business class seat (First class is a large recliner, even more dated) is at least one generation behind the current marketplace standard and will be upgrading their fleet with the new seats similar to those on the 747-800. There are a few A340's with these new seats, but I didn’t luck out.

I didn’t sleep well on my flight; I tossed and turned for a while then just watched a few movies before breakfast. Sun rise came quickly and I had an omelet. It was a little bland, but the tater-tots and coffee were both great and picked me up.

Lufthansa has invested in their intra-Europe inflight experience with new seats and upgraded meals. European business class seats are just coach seats with the middle seat empty. The seats are comfortable for a 3 hour or shorter flight too. The flight attendants were friendly and very attentive on this flight. The meal was a delicious currywurst paired with a salmon something and mint chocolate dessert. It was a very enjoyable flight and I read up on Helsinki on the way.
