My World Youth Day trip
1. LH731 HKG-MUC 23/7/2016 A346 PEY (here)
2. LH1622 MUC-KRK 24/7/2016 A321-200 Y
3. LO3836 GDN-WAW 7/8/2016 DH8 Y
4. LH1615 WAW-MUC 7/8/2016 E195 Y
5. LH730 MUC-HKG 7/8/2016 A346 Y

This is my first trip to Europe, I chosen Lufthansa to my destination. I will take LH731 to Munich and
transit to Krakow, it look a nice trip for World Youth Day. However, I heard that LH797 to FRA was
delay due to weather problem. There a lots of passengers ask for the hotel and allowance.

The passengers ask for information of LH797

There are some surprise for me, I used mobile boarding pass. However the light turn red,
the staff checked my passport and told me "Sir, your seat changed to 23C from 57K. It is the premium
Economy Class, it is much comfortable. Enjoy your flight. Wow, it is my first time upgrade.

Conclusion

It is really surprise jounery for me, it is nice to enjoy the Premium Economy Class for 12hrs flight.
The seat is comfortable and enough legroom for me. The overnight kit is useful for the overnight flight.
I really like a bottle of water, it is the extra item from Economy class.

For the meal, it looks quite similar to Y class. But they use more elegant tableware and the glasses cup
for the drinks. The dinner is more attractive than the breakfast. Totally sum up, the catering of LH
is out of my expect.

For the crew, they are really like to smile and they have good language skills. The FA who serve me
it speaks Cantonese. On the other hand, the serve the drink every an hour. Good job.

It is very nice experience on PEY, hope I can on board again.

    Thanks for this very nice report on Lufthansa's Premium Economy! The product looks very nice overall--from the good seats and good amount of space to the better service and catering. The only thing I find weird about LH's Premium Economy is that they only use those flimsy screens to separate PE from Y instead of a true bulkhead wall like other airlines. On some aircraft, I believe on the A380, LH's PE is surrounded by Economy class in front and in the back, which I find even weirder. Aside from that, everything looks great. Thanks for sharing!

      Yup, Lufthansa's PEY is really nice and comfortable. But I like the screen in front of me instead of store
      in the armrest. A346 's PEY is better than A380's, because the IFE system is the latest model. The screen it look
      nice.

    Very nice look at LH's PE offering on the A340.... looks like a good offering. It's nice that even if the second meal (breakfast) is kinda economy-ish, it's served with real dishes and tableware. My only longhaul PE experience is AC, where you get a domestic J-style meal for the first meal, and after that, it's all economy service all the time. Hard product looks good for PE, and service seems to match.

    For some reason, I find the downstairs lavatories on the LH 346 the coolest thing. Just novelty, I'm sure, but it's so different.

    Thanks for sharing this!

      LH's PEY is really nice, especially the dinner is tasty and full enough. Also, the overnight kit is useful
      for thus flight. The downstairs lavatories is unique of all the 346. That's why I choose A346 to MUC instead of
      the boring A388 to FRA.
