All opinions are always honest and my own. The airline has started to rebrand its A aircrafts with the new brand livery and Dream Collection in and most of the aircrafts covering the Asian routes from Frankfurt already enjoy the new look.

Arrival and check-in I arrived for check-in for my flight from Barcelona to Singapore via Frankfurt at Terminal 2 of Barcelona Airport with plenty of time to spare. And this time was only extended by the swift check-in which was practically immediate.
I had already pre-selected my seats and my only concern was making sure that my suitcase would make it since there were six kilograms of ham inside. But it was all done in a matter of minutes and I was only reminded of the Fast Lane access granted to my Business Class seat, invaluable in peak summer months in Barcelona when the airport queues can be horrendous.
After waving goodbye to my mother I went through the fast lane where there was no queue, and within 15min I was through, Singapore Changi Airport style.
Business Class passengers in Barcelona have all access to one of the two lounges available at the airport. They are both the same and the only difference is the location, one of them being in the non-Schengen area while the other is outside.
I like this lounge very much mostly because the food is good.
We are in Spain after all, so you can expect small proper sandwiches, pastries, yogurts, fruits, etc. I always enjoy one last ham or fuet thin sausage sandwich before taking off and sit on one of the comfy sofas to wait for my flight.
In this case, I also did some last minute shopping. Prices in Spain are so much cheaper than in Singapore and Barcelona Airport is a great shopping destination so I can never resist.
When it was time, I simply went to the gate to board for my flight to Frankfurt which was shorter than 2h. The Business Class flight from Barcelona to Frankfurt is fast and service includes a meal and drinks. As this was breakfast time, I got a selection of cold cuts, cheeses, some breads and pastries, juice and coffee.
The lounges in Frankfurt Airport Frankfurt airport at night Frankfurt Airport is big and there is always a fair bit of walking but in this case it did not matter too much to me because I had a 9h connecting wait and a business meeting so my date was waiting for me where we disembarked from the bus that took us from the aircraft to the airport and we headed to the closest lounge.
I was lucky enough that with my Gold status with Star Alliance I could also access any lounge so we walked into the first lounge we saw, which turned out to be a First Class lounge, and the staff at the gate were kind enough to let us both in.
This lounge is large and quite busy through the day with lots of passengers, most of which were on business. At one point I noticed that I was the only person there that was not wearing a suit and also one of very few women. I certainly stood out among the crowd of serious-looking business crowd.
Courtesy of Lufthansa The lounge had a large selection of food available but only a couple of more consistent meals including German favorites.
There were cheese pretzels, sausages and also the German version of gnocchi which is eaten topped with veal stew. Tasty, if not the healthiest options.
Through the day I enjoyed various drinks, sweet caramelised popcorn, chips, pretzels and even soup. All were quite enjoyable.
If you need to work, the lounge has a few desks available with power points, tables and proper chairs.
The relaxation area has semi-flat chairs that face a green foliage wall where you can sleep or listen to music. There are screens showing the main news channels, stools and high tables for a casual sit down or snack and lots of comfortable sofas with power points.
Courtesy of Lufthansa The cabin onboard my Lufthansa A aircraft had already been fitted with the new brand livery and design elements.
It looked very similar to my A experience only it was more spacious, as the A is a far larger aircraft. Most notably, there was extra storage space next to my window seat with two compartments with lids where I could fit all my electronics.
This is practically the only difference between the A and A from Lufthansa as is the case with other airlines flying both aircrafts. The cabin is designed in the same reverse herringbone layout with the seats on the sides facing the windows and away from the alleys for extra privacy and the two middle seats facing each other.
I had one of these window seats and it felt quite private even if a stranger was seated next to me. Lufthansa Business Class seat The seats are in the new grey of the brand and have copper accents, striped pillows and navy blue blanket-duvets. They bring the cabin to a much more refined level and a fresh image while keeping them warm and cozy.
The uniforms of the crew have also been upgraded accordingly and now have the historical Lufthansa yellow only on small details like the neck complements or the tie for the men. For those in transit between overnight flights, there are showers you can use to freshen up.
There were 8 First Class open Suites, 78 Business Class seats, 52 Premium Economy seats and Economy seats on Lufthansa A making the total number of passengers when the aircraft is full a whooping Review: Flying Singapore Airlines Business Class by Jeanne Horak on October 24, 21 Comments in Airlines, Singapore Anybody who has flown long haul flight will be familiar with the glamour of modern airline travel.
