Business class returns to Ex UP destinations sooner than expected

If I'm not mistaken they said it would be a couple of years before the aircrafts used on the ex UP get Business installed again, but due to demand this has been brought forward.

Berlin and Kiev get it back starting October, and the other routes during 2019.

Customers may get to enjoy a business class seat and service in the air, but no ground experiance, with the flights still leaving from the "low cost" T1 (how on earth do they get away with that?) there will be no Lounge to use.
