Hello!

I always hoped to fly with Lufthansa, When I decided to travel to Germany with good friend, I bought flight tickets with LH and here's my experience with Lufthansa in the flight from TLV to FRA.

TLV Terminal 3:

The food area was empty, because Kosher restaurants in Israel aren't open in Saturday.

The way to the gate:

The original take off time was 4PM, but the boarding started at 4.30PM. I don't know why.

We took off with delay of 55 minutes.

Shortly after takeoff, over Tel aviv:

40 Minutes after take off, over Cyprus, the crew served lunch:

Included: Salad, Pasta with tomatos, bread, butter, cheese and apple cake.
The Salad was OK, the Pasta was too hot and unsalty, the other ingredients were nice.
Totally the food was nice, but I got better food in Elal flights and in LH694 flight (FRA-TLV)

Nice view, 2 hours after take off, I guess it's over Hungary or Romania:

During the descent the flight became bumpy and uncomfortable.
This flight was my horriblest flight in my life, due to heavy rainy storms over Germany.
I can't tell You how I felt during the approach to Frankfurt, but I can tell you that I hoped that we land soon, and fast as possible…

You can see the bad visibility from the window:

Again I landed in Frankfurt, and again I rented a car. (Again from SIXT…)
Nice BMW M4:

I ordered VW Golf, but actually I got Nissan Qashqai 1.5 DCI:

Conclusion

LH is very nice airline. I think that they offering good product in the economy class.
The aircraft to TLV are usually newer than Elal aircrafts in TLV-FRA route, and also the cabin is cleaner, the legroom is the same and LH take off in Saturday, while Elal not.
But I can't Ignore that the flight took off with delay and also landed with delay. But I can understand the delay in the landing, because of the rainy storm.
The food needs some improvment, and I also think that the Overhead TVs are missing, even LH offered streaming from the Smartphone.

TLV airport good as usual, but this time they got lower score in services, because in Saturday many of the resturants are closed.
FRA airport is amazing and very clean, they got low score in access because the long distances from place to place and because the way to the Rental cars area wasn't clear.

Totally, even there were some disadvantages, I enjoyed from the Flight with LH and the visiting in FRA airport.
