There is no doubt that when it comes to deciding on a business class flight from the United States to Europe you're spoilt for choice. Here we have a choice from 5 of the best airlines that provide a true representation of business class on international routings. Their business class seating is matched by the service they provide before, during and after the flight.

Lufthansa: Est. 1953 


Because Lufthansa has the same seats in all their business class cabins you’re guaranteed consistent comfort regardless of your international flight route. As Europe's only 5 star carrier Lufthansa’s business class service is as good as it gets with constant high ratings for their menu and service. As of 2023 Lufthansa plans to roll out their new business class suite on the new A350 and Boeing 787. They say their new business class seats focus heavily on the customers comfort while sleeping. The seats have been designed in such a way that allows your shoulder to comfortably sink into the back rest, allowing even side sleepers to drift off into dreamland. While they say the focus is on sleep they haven’t forgotten about your immediate surroundings either. The dedicated work stations in each pod gives plenty of room for ideas to flow freely.

In 2017 Delta finally updated their aging business class (Delta One) and they didn’t do it by half measure either.

With these new introductions Delta have managed to elevate their image and place themselves higher up the rankings for worlds best business class carrier.
