Introduction:
After 2 weeks trip in Germany and Austria, it was the time to come back to Israel.
I started my trip in Frankfurt and finished in Hamburg, so I took flight from HAM to FRA with Lufthansa, LH031 and then this flight, from FRA to TLV.
I had only one hour between two flights, so there's no photos from the terminal or something else. Really sorry for that, but I hope that in September I'll visit in Frankfurt again, and I will take a lot of photos :)

Here's some photos from Germany and Austria:

I travelled with good friend who checked in for 19E seat, after the boarding completed, we found that 19D seat is free, so We felt like passengers in European business class.

Really good meal for 4 hours of flight, It was very tasty.

Conclusion

LH is very nice airline. I think that they're offering good product in the economy class.
The food was very good, the FA were very nice and helped, the cabin was clean, the legroom was OK and the streaming system worked almost perfectly.

FRA airport is amazing and very clean, they got lower score in the access criteria because the distance that you need to walk from gate to gate. (I had connection flight)

TLV airport good as usual, all worked perfectly, so I can't reduce the score.
I hope that I'll fly with them again in September.

    Thanks for this FR.
    The timing of the flight is a bit odd, but i guess it helps with connection from FRA.
    The very basic salad and small dessert does make a bad overall impression of the meal.

      Not only because it helped with the connection flight, I chose this flight because I could travel in Hamburg in the last day until 5PM, and I always prefer to choose night flight in my return flights, because I can travel in the last day, almost like normal day.
      The salad is small, but the meat and the cake were very nice, and the salad was good. LY meals also including small salads in the Y class.

    The whole flight looks like LH has a great short to mid haul product. My one observation would be that LH should look into having a meal that doesn't mix milk / meat. or even better, is fully kosher on their Israel flights. I flew swiss ZRH-TLV-ZRH a few years ago, and these considerations were made.
