The US carriers offer first class (or what's left of it... NWA flyer here) for shorter routes, so why can't the European carriers? I guess what bothers me is if I pay the hefty price for a transatlantic business class ticket, then connect in Europe, I have to sit in what is essentially a coach product for the remainder of my trip. For the price, I'd expect more.
