Apparently the new Business Class from Austrian (which looks much like Swiss' product) is still showing good availability for many dates to the East Coast from Vienna. LOT shows most availability from the US to Europe (not vice versa).

My take:

I have trips booked on Skyteam with Air France in Business Class in August and late September. It's interesting as most availability there also has shown on US-Europe legs not the other way around. OS and LO do not have direct flights to the West Coast so the options for me would be to change flights in IAD/JFK/ORD which is frankly too much hassle given my onward connection in Europe then.

However both products are fresh and equipped with lie-flat seats and they should at the very least generate some great, unique trip reports 🙂
