Narita to Frankfurt – wish I’d paid the extra money to fly business class! Crammed in the lower deck with 419 other people, it was plain uncomfortable for the whole eleven and a half hours.

The whole airplane seemed to be designed for Asians. Narrow seat, small seat pitch, the seat back of the passenger in front of your face most of the time, except at meal times when the attendant ordered him to sit up.

Boarding was reasonably quick but de-planing was a long drawn-out process, not helped by a number of first-time passengers, and an absence of instructions from staff.

Service and meals were good, but not much space for it, juggling items between the table and the seat pocket.

Flew back from Munich on a 340-600 much better. Never again in a 380!
