After checking in for our flight from Madrid to Brussels, we were informed that we could use the VIP Access line.

After going down the escalator one floor, we got to a security area that was completely empty. It was like going through security in the Lufthansa First Class Terminal, except in a bigger, brighter space. We were through in a matter of minutes.

Intra-Europe Business Class is an economy class seat with the middle seat blocked. In this case, we were the only two business class passengers, and were each given our own row.

Lasagna

A hot meal was served on the short flight. It consisted of pastrami, along with a tomato and mozzarella terrine. The entrée consisted of lasagna, which was rather soupy but tasted good. Dessert was not very good, and really sweet. I think it was a marzipan tart.

Roll

I chose a wheat roll, which was pretty tasty and sopped up the lasagna sauce pretty well.

Chocolate

The meal ended with a piece of dark chocolate.

The views over Spain were fantastic.

Drinks were refilled throughout the flight. The flight was pleasant but uneventful. Intra-Europe business class is not what you would call aspirational, but it’s amazing how service can be include a hot meal on a short flight. Although this flight was a little over a little 2 hours, hot meals are also served on flights lasting a little over an hour.
