Miles & More (Lufthansa, Austrian, Swiss, and other partners) - Croatian Q400 Business Class Experience?
Jul 21, 12, 4:35 pm
I can't seem to find any info on business class on the Croatian (OU) prop Q400. Even seatguru and others don't show any business class, but I'm told I'm booked in Business from DBV to ZRH next month. I did a search and could not find anything on the forum.
Any info would be appreciated.

Just like any other european Q400, the class divider slides to accomodate the number of C fares sold. You will have a standard economy seat, with the seat next to you vacant. What exactly interests you regarding OU business class service? Here's what you can expect as far as F&B are concerned: http://www.croatiaairlines.com/Travel-info/On-board/In-flight-services

I only flew domestic C on OU, but I presume the service is much the same internationally too. As stated above, the seat is just the same as economy, which means not too comfortable, especially on the Q400, and especially on longer flights. It can be a bit too noisy for some as well, since the front of the plane is so close to the propellers. On the other hand, the crew is attentive, the meals are pretty rich and tasty, the choice of drinks is decent, and the overall experience is much what you'd expect from C class on any EU flight. The crew has even been known to arrange separate transfer for C passengers connecting to an onward flight. Overall, I'd say 4/5 for the soft product and 2/5 for the hard product.

"On all Croatia Airlines flights in Business class a representative meal that is a faithful portrayal of the different parts of Croatia is served. Lunch and dinner on flights that last more than 70 minutes are served in two or three courses, and the passengers will get warm towels, a menu and a vine list."
