August 15th is a bank holiday in France, a perfect opportunity for a day-trip in Europe, but don’t be misled, this day-trip is not about the destination XD

To make things work I had to position myself with a doggy early flight to Frankfurt, I could either take AF or LH but I chose the later as it has been a while since I flew with the germans, and I was keen to try out their NEK seats, especially to compare them with our infamous AF “ironing board”

LH’s satellite has been refurbished and is quite pleasant.

I was secretly hoping for a Sharklet version of the A320, but this is all the opposite, D-AIQD one of the oldest of the fleet!

Boarding started on-time

The long awaited seats!

Well there are very thin too and not that much comfortable, but they do recline and offer a descent sized table.

Service consisted of a chocolate filled croissant and a choice of hot and cold drinks

Taste was very average but quantity wise it was good

LH magazine often has very good articles on the company backstage operations and airports, this month they are showcasing A330-300 new Business-Class retrofit.

We landed on the new runway facing west then had to taxi for a good 10 minutes before getting to our gate, but luckily not a bus gate!

Conclusion

LH is offering a consistent European product, I am not a fan of their new seats but IMHO they seem more advanced then AF counterpart. It’s good to offer on a morning flight a full choice of drinks and not only HOT DRINKS, and a descent sized croissant...a word to the wise.

Stay tuned, the beast is yet to come!
