American Airlines’ Business Class
American’s Business Class is generally well received. Their food and beverage service gets positive feedback as well as their lie flat seat. In contrast, their lackluster lounges and bulky air bag seat belts are main points of criticism. You can read a more detailed review in English or German.
British Airways’ Club World Business Class
BA’s Business Class is subject to some mixed reviews. While it offers lie-flat seats in most aircraft configurations, they are deemed to narrow by some costumers. Since not all seats are facing forward, you might have to endure a long trip facing to the rear end of the cabin.
Further, that some business fares do not include free seat selection is critized, as it may cost €60 to select the seat of your choice. A more detailed review of BA’s 777 Business Class can be read here. Their Boeing 787 features a similiar layout that is reviewed here.
