Philadelphia to Frankfurt
Boarding was very relaxed. I settled in and was promptly offered a glass of Champagne de Castelnau Brut Réserve.
My seat was in the first row of the rear Business cabin which was full today. Please note there is a little CC office immediately to your left, but for most of the flight the curtain was closed and it didn’t bother me.
Meal service was erratic. My neighbour, who had ordered a starter and dessert only, had nearly finished by the time I tucked in…seasonal salad (my first choice of chicken spring roll was not available) followed by pumpkin ravioli.
The cabin was in mint condition, the IFE choice superb and the seat very comfortable at full stretch. However, I did miss a BA-style dividing screen!
Meanwhile I listened to Caetano Veloso and Amr Diab, and read the New York Times.
I didn’t manage to get any sleep, but soon it was time for breakfast: salami, Swiss Emmental and cream cheese with chives, coffee, fresh orange juice and strawberry yogurt.
It was only when we landed that I realised just how tired I was and I think for that reason I found FRA a complete maze and was the last person to board the bus for my connecting flight.
Overall, a good flight….but I can honestly say that my last LH longhaul flight to Addis Ababa in Economy was on a par.20th October 2015 at 12:42 #538858
Interesting article Icenspice.
Ultimately though, for all the food, IFE and other gimmicks its all about sleep. And if you failed to sleep on a PHL to Europe overnight then I would suggest the product failed.20th October 2015 at 19:51 #538859
No matter how good the hard product is, I will always have problems sleeping on aircraft. Maybe I don’t work hard enough to merit sleep !!!22nd October 2015 at 18:35 #538860
Hi Icenspice !
Thanks for your report ;short ,concise ,inspiring and informative !
I like the new LH Business Class product generally but you turned on a lamp when you said that IFE choice was superb : you are reassuring me for my next LH flight as I have never before found the LH IFE on their longhaul network any good or inspiring …On my last LH flight on FRA/IAD on a 747-8 in Business Class the IFE was indeed poor and uninspiring ..23rd October 2015 at 13:46 #538861
Thanks for your compliment!
I hope you enjoy your next LH longhaul flight.
Have a great weekend.23rd October 2015 at 14:12 #538862
