Hello everybody and welcome to my America - Europe grand trip!

I took a brake of 3 weeks from college & job for travelling across the USA, Carribiean Islands and Poland.

The flights:

TLV (Tel Aviv, Israel) -> FRA (Frankfurt, Germany) LH A321 Economy
FRA (Frankfurt, Germany) -> MCO (Orlando, FL, USA) LH B744 Economy (YOU ARE HERE! / VOUS ETES ICI!)
MCO (Orlando, FL, USA) -> EWR (Newark, NJ, USA) UA B738 EconomyPlus
JFK (New York, NY, USA) -> WAW (Warsaw, Poland) LO B788 Economy
KTW (Katowice, Poland) -> TLV (Tel Aviv, Israel) E4 B738 Economy


As my flight should deaprt at 1.40PM, I had more than 1h30 to spend in Z part which is the new part that serves the most Intercontinetal flights of Lufthansa.
What a long corridor!

    Thanks for your report! I have always had an eye on LH and I find it quite nice to see that they updated their 744's with new seating. Quite an odd move for those old ladies given that for example, AF and KL have and are in the middle of phasing them out. They do look quite appealing to me! Need to check LH out for sure.

    Thanks for this FR.
    Flying on a 747 is becoming a treat.
    Decent experience on LH, but a basic one.
    The crew makes all the difference with such a product.

    Thanks for posting this FR! Despite being relatively old planes, LH 744s look very comfortable, because the updated interior (which is basically the same interior found in 748s) makes a big difference. Sadly, the 747 is on its way to extintion (In 20 years, they will only be a nice memory).

    Nice report! Always nice to see reports on the Queen of the Skies. It's such a beautiful bird. With DL and UA both retiring their 747 fleets, they're going to be more and more rare here in the U.S. I'm glad LH has 748s as well as the 744s, that way there will be 747s around for a while to come :-)

    The cabin looks good for an older aicraft with the newer style seats, though the bins are still the old style. The catering looks good for transatlantic Y. Especially the fact that they serve a hot meal for the 2nd meal. Most other carriers only serve a small sandwich or snack for the second meal.

    Thanks for sharing!
