Hi,

I arrived at a sunny Munich Airport on a rather busy Friday afternoon. Nonetheless there were no queues at the Lufthansa priority check in area and my luggage was on its way within seconds. 

Once airside I headed to the Lufthansa Senator Lounge at G 24 area. In the begnning it was still rather busy but at ca. 16:30 it started to get empty quickly. Here are some shots of this nice lounge which feels rather cosy and quite modern overall. 



The self service buffet offers some cold salads, dessert & ice cream.

All drinks and warm food however has to be ordered and is handed over by staff.

I started with some meat balls which actually tasted very nice. I also tried the cold bean salad and some very creamy potato salad.

Followed by some ice cream and a cup of tasty Espresso.

Boarding had just started when I reached the gate - as always in typical Lufthansa way with a mess and no proper queues for priorities etc. This keeps to stay an ongoing problem for Lufthansa at Munich forever in my opinion.

A short shot of our A 319 for this evening's flight.

A friendly cabin crew welcomed us and handed over disinfection towels.

I took my window seat in the second row of a huge Business Class cabin filling 10 rows this evening.

A look outside the window before we started our pushback and departure direction East.

This flight was announced to take 1 hour and soon the cabin crew was released to start inflight service.

A cold meal with a warm bread roll out of a basket was served.

Another picture without the plastic covers. The tomatoes and mozzarella balls actually tasted very bland. The dessert was not very tasty neitherand tasted very artificial.

Drinks trolley followed and I had some wine, water and tea as usual. On this occasion I noted that Lufthansa uses below picture standard glasses only on domestic flights. All International flights get a proper mix of separate wine and water glasses.

The cabin crew was friendly but typical Lufthansa way nothing extraordinary. The flight progressed smoothly and soon we were descending into sunny Hamburg skies.

We touched down and parked next to a nice looking Iberia Airbus headed for Madrid.

Conclusion

In general a nice short flight. However the meal was really tasteless and Lufthansa should definitely switch to better tasting Business Class meals and more variety again rather tomorrow than later. Lufthansa really frustrates frequent travellers with the same meals repeating and repeating for ca. 1 year now.

    Danke sehr für diesen sehr schön geschriebenen, kompakten Trip Report! In der Tat handelt es sich bei der G24 SEN um eine sehr schöne, angenehme Lounge, die auch äußerst mag! Über das Inflight Meal müssen wir nicht groß reden denke ich, standardisierte Tomate-Mozzarella halt... Ich kann es kaum erwarten, wenn im September die neuen Business Class Menüs erscheinen!
    Bis zum nächsten Mal und VG

      Hallo Lars - danke dir für dein nettes Feedback! Ja es wird wirklich Zeit, dass sich an den Menüs etwas ändert! Hast du denn schon irgendwo konkretere Infos, was sich ab September konkret an den Business Class Menüs für Europaflüge ändern soll? Hoffentlich behalten sie zumindest die warmen Mahlzeiten mit Aperitif-Service auf den Prestigerouten bei - natürlich nur mit besserer Qualität und mehr Abwechslung. Falls du mehr weißt, gib gern Bescheid. VG Alex

        Guten Abend Alex,
        Sorry schon mal für die späte Anwort!
        Bisher ist noch nicht sehr viel darüber bekannt, doch es wurde bereits im LH HON Circle Talk von Frau Förster angesprochen. Zentrale Idee des Konzeptes soll wohl sein, dass die Menüs regional und qualitativ auf den Abflugort abgestimmt werden sollen, aber keine Ahnung wie man das bei der LH deuten darf?! Gibt dann ab MUC wohl Leberkäswecken xD.
        Viele Grüße

    Hi FlyAlex, thanks for sharing!

    Ok, I know it's a short domestic flight, but those 5 mozzarella balls and 3 tiny tomato slices look really sad 😂
    It's definitely better than anything that would be served in the US on a similar length flight, but it just made me laugh.

    However the meal was really tasteless and Lufthansa should definitely switch to better tasting Business Class meals and more variety again rather tomorrow than later.

    LH should take a lesson from OS and hire Do & Co to do the catering!

    Thanks for sharing!
