Best biz class to Copenhagen

Best biz class to Copenhagen

    Hey OMAAT friends,

    I’m planning a Scandinavian adventure for the summer of 2020 and wanted your opinions on the best biz class flight. I’m based out of San Francisco, but after checking prices I’m not opposed to flying down to LAX as my departure airport. From what I can find I’ve narrowed it down to the following options. Given I’ll be a solo travel who prefers the seat and food over ground experience or service (to a degree), what’s the general lean?

    Swiss Air B777
    Air France B777
    United Polaris B777
    Turkish B777
    American Airlines B777
    Lufthansa A380
    British A380
    British B747

    The prices range from $3050 (American Airlines) to $5000 (Turkish). Given my desires for this biz class flight my initial lean is to Air France, United, or American. I’m ideally looking for a cabin with 1-2-1 seating (or 1-2-2) so I can have a little more privacy, but it’s not a complete deal breaker. I was really hoping Turkish’s hard product was more competitive but I’m worried about people climbing over me all flight if they are indeed 2-3-2 seating. Same concern with Lufthansa. I hear their biz cabins are all 2-4-2 or 2-3-2.

    Mike, if your main concern is flying solo with a solid seat and good food – I’d go with Swiss or United Polaris. British, Turkish and Lufthansa, as you mention, all don’t have direct aisle access.

    I think AA is great, when they want to be, but it’s definitely hit or miss.

    Wanted to add… US West Coast to Copenhagen is around 5500 miles flown, depending on the routing. That means your round trip in paid business class should you earn a considerable chunk of elite qualifying miles, if elite status is important to you. You’d be 90% of the way to Gold Status on American with the one trip, for instance.
