Hello my Aviator,
welcome on board of my YouTube channel! Are you ready for departure to Miami?
I take you on a 11 hours flight from Düsseldof to Miami with Eurowings, the low cost airline of Lufthansa. They recently launched their “Business Class” product called BIZclass. I originally booked a premium economy seat in Eurowings “BEST” class, because Business Class tickets were over 4000€.
Before the flight I was not able to purchase an upgrade, but I found out that it is possible to do a cash upgrade on board of the plane. The upgrade is only available if there are free seats and I didn’t know how much it would be prior boarding. Luckily there were many seats available and the price was decent. From Best to BIZclass it was 450€ and from Smart (economy) to BIZclass 650€ on that day. 450€ is still a lot of many since you could already get a roundtrip ticket for one person in Economy to Miami.
Find out in this flight review if the upgrade was really worth it and what the low cost Business Class has to offer. Normally, I don’t support low cost airlines like Ryanair and Eurowings, but since the bankruptcy of AirBerlin and other airlines flight connections (especially long-haul) from Berlin reduced significantly.
Which leaves the passengers with no other option. Low cost means the airlines try to save as much as they can to be profitable. Especially the wage of the crew is much lower than compared to other local airlines. Passengers should carefully book their tickets so not to support loan dumping in the aviation industry.
