My connection time at Munich was 2 hours and 5 minutes, we immediately went to the closest FIDS to see what gate our flight would depart from, it was gate H38 but it later turned out that they would be using both H37 and H38 for my flight. There was no security control during my transfer, only a passport control. My father used the automated passport control and went through, however you had to be over 18 to use it. I'm under 18 years old so I had to use the regular passport control, and there was an extremely long line there! One of the agents at the passport control told me to tell one of the agents at the regular passport control, that my father is waiting for me. I followed his instructions and was through passport control in no-time! I was basically allowed to skip the whole line.
My father was not interested in the duty free shops or anything like that, he just wanted to rest at the gate so we just went to our assigned gate.
My ride to Munich, Lufthansa Airbus A340-642 (D-AIHP).
My father decided to sit at our gate, trying to get his Wi-Fi working. Meanwhile, I walked around and tried to spot a bit. Didn't do a lot of spotting, as I was too excited to fly on the A346!
Air Canada Boeing 777-300ER, this one was headed for Toronto (YYZ), most of the passengers waiting seemed to be of Indian origin.
D-AIHP to Delhi, love the A346, so beautiful!
Eventually it was time for boarding, first, business and star gold passengers boarded first, then the rest of the passengers. Flight time was scheduled at 7 hours 25 minutes.
Boarding was actually slightly delayed, 11:25 was the scheduled boarding time but boarding was announced 20 minutes later.
Not the best weather at MUC
Unfortunately this was an A346 with the old IFE, but it was a bit more responsive than expected.
The seat pitch wasn't the best, but decent for me during this flight (I'm 177cm tall)
The annoying IFE box.
Boarding was done at 12:15 or 12:20.
Takeoff from Munich at 12:45, 40 minutes late but the captain told us that we would make up time in the air.
Climbing towards our cruising altitude
They served a small bag of 'cloud hoppers' approximately 30 minutes after takeoff.
Decided to watch a film with my awesome 'cloud hoppers', I have no idea what the name of the film was and I didn't watch the entire film. Speaking about the IFE, it wasn't so good. The IFE was quite old, but LH is refurbishing their long-haul fleet with new seats and the new RAVE IFE. The content wasn't great, they really need to add more films and albums. They should also add more bollywood films if they want to attract more Indian customers. All of this wasn't a huge issue for me, as I just like to watch the moving map or look out through the window, it might be a problem for others.
The first drink service began a few minutes after the small snack, OJ and water for me. There were two flight attendants serving our aisle, one of them was fairly friendly with a few smiles here and there, but the other one was very friendly and attentive! All of them were helpful though.
Hot towels were also distributed.
The meal service began about 1 hour and 45 minutes after departure, no menus were distributed. We had the choice of chicken or Indian vegetarian, I'm a huge fan of chicken so you can guess what option I went with.
The meal consisted of a main course with chicken and rice, a bread bun, easter chocolate, a salad and a dessert. The meal was accompanied by a glass of orange juice as always. The chicken was quite juicy and tasty. The rest of the main course wasn't so bad as well. The salad was tasteless but the dessert was decent. The bread bun was a bit cold. Overall, I was satisfied with the meal. My father went with the same option as me and he really liked it.
They handed out these forms when we were flying over Turkey.
Not a lot happened after the meal service, it started to become dark when we flew over Azerbaijan.
Went to the lavatory approximately 2 hours before landing, the lavatories onboard this A346 are located downstairs.
They served a small snack before landing at Delhi, sorry, forgot to take a pic of it. It was a pizza snack. The weather wasn't great at Delhi, the pilot had to wait for a while before lining up with the runway. This resulted in a 20 minute delay.
Landing at Delhi, sorry for the bad quality.
First impressions of DEL were good, the airport was quite clean and modern!
The immigration wasn't as inefficient as I thought it would be, one funny thing happened here. The agent at the desk didn't even look at us when we gave him our passports. He talked with one of his colleagues next to him all the time and laughed. This resulted in a mistake, he stamped my passport with my father's signature and my father's passport with my signature, I guess that was a sign we were in India! Btw, he never actually looked at our passports.
We only had one piece of luggage as I mentioned in part 1.
One of the hotel staff came to pick us up by car and that's it for this flight.
BONUS from India, I didn't just visit Delhi, also went to Jaipur, Ajmer and Agra.

Munich - MUC
New Delhi - DEL
I think I'm quite satisfied with this flight with Lufthansa. It's my first long-haul flight with LH and I'm not disappointed. The cabin seemed to be a bit tired but they are refurbishing their long-haul fleet with new seats and a new IFE. The food was great, really liked it but the presentation wasn't that great. The 20 minute delay at Delhi wasn't a severe delay in my opinion, it didn't really affect us much. The seat pitch might be slightly or very tight for a lot of people, especially for a very long flight like MUC-HKG, I think it was enough for this flight. The service was excellent, probably the best service I have received on a long-haul flight. The flight attendants were very friendly, helpful, attentive and proffesional. Overall, I'm satisfied with Lufthansa's service. I think I would fly long-haul with them again, if they have competitive prices.
