We were warmly welcomed, the lounge isn't big but lots of daylight and nicely air conditionned:

There are also sandwiches but since they were not refrigerated (one was with chicken the other one with cheese) I didn't try them.

Close to boarding time we went to the boarding area with a toilet stop first. I have never, ever, seen toilets in such a disgusting state.

the flight


Boarding started on time with two agents that were the people the less friendly we have seen during our whole stay. Disorganised, arrogant, and so on. No priority boarding, we had to make our way up to the desk to be able to board.
Boarding was via stairs and walking to the plane:

The terminal is getting a new wing:

Our purser, Sebastian, warmly greeted us aboard, and I made my way to the infameous NEK seat:

In coach, no more free service apart from a bottle of water and chocolate:

Austrian's BOB is better, in my opinion.

I find it "funny" that inflights magazines are no more available due to the pandemic and the risk of infection but there is no problem to publish a buy on board brochure …

The meal:


photo img_1903_resultat

Bread is served hot, the only "problem" is that there is no salt or pepper on the tray and with mozzarella cheese, no condiments is a bit odd. Fortunately, I still had it from my Austrian flights :)

And a chocolate to conclude the light meal:

Conclusion

The NEK cabin is showing its age and worse, it is not comfortable at all. A super friendly purser that did more than its job and was happy to do this flight and take care about the customers.

The meal was on the light side but perfectly fine.

SJJ was great, apart from the toilets :(

FRA was easy to transfert, not too much people.

The lounge is a nice place to wait for the flight, only the catering could be better with, for example, put the sandwiches in the fridge.

Thanks for reading!

    Hey Stephan, thanks for sharing ! The old NEK cabin looks even worse now that it is ageing. The new cabins look better but not sure if they’re more comfortable.

    Airlines like BA and TP and the new KL cabins have nicer thicker seats up front, too bad LH didn’t take part in that trend with their new cabins.

    Totally agree that having BOB menus but no magazines makes zero sense.

    Thanks for sharing !
