Lufthansa A380 does not have fully flat business seat.

I was amazed to see that they have an angled bed in business.. and the pic that I saw looks very angled on their new A380.

Surely one would expect a fully flat bed. The reviews were not very complimentary.

Anyone been on it?

They have taken over the now bankrupt MaxJet Route market

I love them to euorpe biz class full reclining seats from $700

The seat on the A380 is pretty much the same as on all their other planes. Some minor, mostly cosmetic changes, but pretty much the same. The seat is okay, but suffers from most of the failings of the angled lie-flat seats.

FWIW, Air France also uses an angled lie-flat seat on their A380.

If you want flat bed seating in biz, then there are a few options. BA is the obvious choice, as they have such a strong TATL route network. Continental has finished installing flat beds on their 757s and 777s, and would be a decent choice, too. United has flat beds on their 747s and 767s. Delta has flat beds on their 767-400s. Swiss has a couple of planes with flat beds, as do Finnair and Alitalia. US Air also has a flat bed on a couple of planes that might be the best of the bunch.
