Re: Lufthansa shows new Business Class seat

I guess that puts to bed (no pun intended) on whether they will take delivery of their B777’s or not.

It looks like a larger Rover. In the States, Jaguars are notorious for electrical issues, so many people tend away from them.

Hey guys,

So i just read an Autocar Review of the Jag SUV and saw that they rated it quite favorably. I however found it to be quite frumpy and generic looking, interior of low quality and overpriced. Am i the only one who doesn't like this car or am i strange?
