As Lufthansa continues to struggle with it's loss-making Austrian Airlines there may be little time left to try Austrian Airlines' chef on board program. If you are not familiar, there is a professional chef onboard in addition to the compliment of flight attendants. I've been looking forward to seeing how the food and service is for some time - but there is one gotcha.
A 12 hour layover.
While I can get plenty of work done in that time, I have another award ticket booked with a more direct routing. So what would you choose? The nonstop or the Austrian flight before it final departure?
