Topic: PHX-TLV F/J Class On US And LH
Username: Itsnotfinals
Posted 2007-07-01 21:24:31 and read 9443 times.

This is my first trip report on A.net after reading them for over 5 years (so please be gentle  . I travel pretty much every week for work, but decided to go ahead and write a trip report up when the TV in my hotel in TLV didn¡¦t work.

When I booked this trip just 3 days before departure (Thanks to a client not signing a contract in a timely fashion), I had no idea that this would turn into a trip full of characters and circumstances that left me as tired and jet lagged as I can ever remember.

This report is for my outbound PHX-TLV which involved 3 overnight flights in a row (that¡¦s what happens when you book last minute, the best routes where sold out or over 7800 USD for economy).

Luckily as a *A FF I was able to use some miles for J the entire way.


PHX-TLV

Chapter 1: They better have more than 4 Heinekens on this plane!

June 13 US18 Seat: 1F (A319)
Tail Number (Not available too dark and bad gate for viewing)
Depart: PHX 13 June 21:49 (Actual 21:49)
Arrive: JFK 14 June 05:39 (Actual 05:45)

Upon boarding the first Red-eye of the trip I was in feeling rested and ready to go. The crew was polite and friendly, welcoming everyone onboard and getting everyone a pre-departure beverage. I settled for the usual merlot in plastic cup and watched the interesting mix of NYC bound passengers board the flight.

Just as I was settling into a magazine, two very obnoxious guys got on the plane and sat in 2D and F. They made sure to announce loudly that they were going to drink all the Heineken and that there "better be more than 4 cans on this flight", since that is all that was available on their previous flight.

I did my best to ignore them and thankfully we left the gate right on time. After a brief taxi we departed off east bound and with the help of some Bose Quiet Comfort headsets, the Heineken boys soon faded out thankfully.

US does not serve food on domestic F flights past 7:30 PM departure times so I settled on the usual snack choices served from the wicker basket (cashews, and Cape Cod chips) and a few Gin and Tonics as Wild Hogs was shown on the overhead LCD¡¦s.

After about 2 hours I dozed off and managed to get about 1.5-2 hours sleep. I woke up about 45 minutes prior to landing in JFK.

The flight attendants offered beverages again and shortly we arrived in JFK's abysmal Terminal 7 and parked next to a BA 747-400. Terminal 7 is in serious need of a facelift and does not reflect very well on NYC.

Since I had over 10 hours between flights US could not check my bag through to TLV on LH., so I claimed my bag and made my way to the intra terminal train and proceeded over to Terminal 1 for my LH connection.

Arriving at Terminal 1 at 0610 the terminal was very quiet with just a few passengers around. This terminal is very nice and modern looking with lots of natural light and was much more an international gateway terminal that anyone could be proud to say was an example of US architecture.

I managed to find a breakfast place on the 2nd floor overlooking the ramp and did some spotting. I saw mostly B6 A320s and E190s some DL 738s and CRJs. The Saudia 744 came and I saw some Avianca flights blast off.

Finally after working on my presentation for my client for 5 hours I queued up at the LH counters and waited for their staff to open the check-in. At about noon I was finally able to check in and I was lucky enough to ask and receive Seat 9A which is the window next to the 1L door on LH's 744 and has about 8 feet of leg room.

Next it was off to the LH lounge. The Lounge is very airy and I immediately smiled when I saw the trademark grey leather seats with yellow piping. I helped myself to some bitter lemon (I used to live in AMS and got addicted to that drink, so I always drink bitter lemon when I see it!) as well as some fresh soft pretzels followed by some excellent coffee to fend off my extreme sleepiness.

About 1:30 the staff bought out some ham and turkey wraps which was just a nice light lunch.

The lounge had a nice selection of middle of the road champagnes and wines and the usual fine German beers. The usual international papers were all available.

My departure time was scheduled to be at 1630 so I left the lounge at 1500 for some spotting on the concourse. I managed to get through TSA security in less than 15 minutes which was great as the terminal had become very busy for the late afternoon European departure bank.

After looking at the Alitalia 772 , an Air France 772 and an Air China 744 I saw my LH 744 at the gate. As many times as I have been on or around 747s, I always love looking into the cockpit from the gate area and watching all the ground activity around the aircraft.

Boarding commenced at about 1545 and was a little chaotic as everyone did the usual rush to board "Bum rush" After the gate agents made some announcements boarding went smoothly.




June 14 LH401 Seat: 9A (B747-400) D-ABVL "Munchen"
Depart: JFK 14 June 16:35 (Actual 18:12)
Arrive: FRA 15 June 05:50 (Actual 07:35)

http://www.airliners.net/open.file?i...38&prev_id=0889694&next_id=0876536

Chapter 2: The bag wasn't even Prada!

On boarding the flight, the 2L door was being used for boarding, I made a left turn and settled into LH's excellent cradle sleeper seat. I did indeed have 3 windows and the 1L door all to myself and I truly enjoyed the blue fabric seats with the iconic yellow crane. There was a 15 page booklet explaining the seat function and the AVOD system. This seat had the AVOD screen in the arm of the chair rather on the back of the seat in front of it. I quickly got acclimated to the environment and settled in for departure. The flight attendants were quite pleasant, petite and offered pre-takeoff champagne, water or juice.


Shortly after 1630 we had a little set back. The cabin staff kept paging a woman to ring her call button. After 10 minutes an announcement was made that a passenger who checked a bag didn't board and they had to retrieve her bag. Everything was sorted out finally shortly after 1700 but by then it was departure rush hour at JFK. We sat at the gate trying to get out of the "alley" for almost one hour. After 1.5 hours of total waiting for push back and taxi we finally got off the ground. I noticed at least 24 aircraft waiting to depart so I was glad our departure time was toward the front of the core European departure times as I had read many times on A.net of 3-4 hour delays at JFK being commonplace. I shudder to think if there had been any weather in the area how bad it would have been. I have only arrived on International flights to JFK so I had never had to enjoy the departure evening bank before.

After departure I put the seat into a recliner position and cranked up the AVOD. Of course the moving map was first to be turned on as we took a very southerly transatlantic route due to the unusual winds that night. We flew well south of Long Island sound and out over the Atlantic.

Menus were in the seat and the Flight attendants came around to ask which item we would like for dinner. The full menu is listed below. I chose the items in bold.

The back of the menu has an add for "Fives"restaurant at the Peninsula


I must say this meal was prepared and presented almost flawlessly. The chicken was moist and everything was truly is if I had ordered at the Peninsula hotel. Lufthansa has never disappointed me in the past and the trend continued on this flight. The passenger next to me had the Salmon and it looked absolutely fantastic also.


I watched "Night at the Museum" and "Wild Hogs" again (Since I missed the last half on the US flight due to sleep). Both movies were great and helped me forget all the work related items swirling in my mind from my morning prep session in Terminal 1 earlier in the day.

I spent about 10 minutes trying to find the optimal sleeping position in the sleeper seat (These seats are almost lay flat and similar to CO's Business First seats I had experienced before, if you play with the settings long enough you can get a very comfortable set-up configured). After a very solid nap in the cradle sleeper seat for about 3 hours the lights came on and the cabin staff prepared breakfast.

This service consisted of:

Brunch

Fresh Fruit

Entrees

Cold Gourmet Plate
Salami, Breast of Turkey
Brie and Pepper Jack Cheese

Or

Hot Specialty
Omelette served with Mushroom ragout,
Tomato Concassee¡¦ and Rosti Potatoes

From the Bread Basket

A selection of Rolls, Croissants and Muffins
Butter, Preserves, Honey and Nutella

Last Minute Breakfast

Coffee or Tea

Orange Juice

Croissants

Again the omlette was picture perfect and not too much nor too little food.

We arrived into FRA over an hour and 45 minutes late due to our delay at JFK. Many passengers missed their connections. I however had until 22:20 PM for my flight to Tel Aviv as the morning departure was full. I decided to enjoy the splendors of FRA and the LH business lounge by gate B44. I put my name on the shower list, there was almost a 3 hour wait for showers as there were quite a number of transiting passengers.

http://www.lufthansa.com/online/port...zMzkvc2EuRGV0YWlsQWN0aW9u#7_0_11VT

While I waited I helped myself to some light snacks and orange juice. I spent the entire 14 hours or so back and worth into this lounge, leaving every few hours to look at duty free and do some spotting while walking around. If I had to do it again, I would have just gotten a hotel and slept, but I had more revisions to my presentation to do so I powered through and got that done in the lounge. I found the 18 Euro for 24 hours of internet a bit expensive, but I did get a lot of use out of it at least!

The shower facilities were certainly adequate and were as usual self contained hotel style rooms with a private toilet, sink, provided toiletries, a glass enclosed shower and several very large bath towels.

I always travel with all my own toiletries and at least 2-3 days of clothes in a carry on when traveling long haul, so I got cleaned up, changed and felt human again.

Throughout the day the food in the lounge included Ham and Bean Soup, Strawberry cake and limitless amounts of candies, crackers and ham spread. This lounge was very airy but did get a bit cramped during a few peak hours mid morning.

In the early afternoon I went to the ¡§Relaxing Room¡¨ in the lounge which consists of a quiet dark room with several deep reclining chairs. I wasn¡¦t really able to sleep that well there because it didn¡¦t feel too private, but it¡¦s still a nice touch on LH¡¦s part. Only the B44 lounge has this room according to LH's web site).

I had a few more snacks and watched the Vietnam Airlines 777-200 come into the gate, along with a Croatia A320 and several other exotic airlines.

I really enjoyed LH's lounge and I am sure they were not designed for 10 hour plus stays, but I was grateful for access that is for sure!. I hear the F lounges are spectacular, but I didn¡¦t burn the extra miles to experience that, maybe next time.

Finally about 2100 I left my new home away from home and headed to the departure gate.






Chapter3: Everything but the happy ending....

As I made my way to the departure gate area I had an extremely thorough security screening with a full body pat down. This was the most extensive security I have had at FRA and by the time it was over I didn't know if I needed a cigarette or a lawyer  .

That being said I was surprised not to have the usual heavy questioning prior to boarding that I had experienced on my last trip to TLV a few years ago (on CO).

The aircraft was parked at a remote stand so we used the as usual very efficient bus to get to our aircraft. The first bus left a full hour before the departure time, as it was still light at 2100 hrs this time of year in Germany, I got on the first bus to see the A340-600 up close with decent light. After a 10 minute bus transit we pulled up to our aircraft.

June 15 LH690 Seat: 6A (A340-600) D-AIHB "Bremerhaven"
Depart: FRA 15 June 22:20 (Actual Time 22:25)
Arrive: TLV 16 June 03:15 (Actual Time 03:20)


http://www.airliners.net/open.file?i...=2&prev_id=1071030&next_id=1008231

Boarding from stairs gives one a great reminder of just how massive the A340-600 is up close. I noticed the name of the plane was "Bremerhaven" and had to laugh as I had seen it at DEN the prior week when I was trying to fly back to PHX (Another story). Climbing up the front set of stairs I made my way to the J cabin.

The cabin staff were again very polite and I had a champagne sitting by me within 3 minutes of boarding.

The final bus arrived about 10 minutes prior to scheduled departure and the J cabin was only about 60% full. The seat next to me was empty so I enjoyed the extra space and settled in for the 3 hours 45 minute flight.

We taxied off the ramp about 5 minutes late but made a very brisk taxi and departed FRA within 15 minutes of engine start.

Again there was a full dinner menu, this time featuring spa food from Baden Baden. I reviewed the menu and cranked up the Airshow again and watched our progression as we headed over Munich and down past southeastern Europe.

Menu:

Featured Chef:

Andreas Krolik
Brenners Park Hotel and Spa

After yet another excellently prepared and presented dinner I went back to the economy cabin to witness the "lower level" Toilets I had seen in A.net pictures for myself (The J cabin only has main level Lavs). The Y cabin, in stark comparison to the J cabin was very cramped and stuffy looking, economy was completely full. I made my way back to the wing and went down the stairs to the lower level where 5 lavs were located. There was a little waiting area and some Lufthansa advertisements. It was a different experience to go down a level on an aircraft for me for sure.

I made my way back up to 6A and passed out the rest of the flight.

I awoke about 20 minutes prior to touch down and could see in the distance the lights of Tel Aviv on the edge of the Mediterranean. We passed just north of Jaffa , right over the downtown beaches of Tel Aviv and landed at Ben Gurion shortly thereafter.

After a brief taxi we pulled up to the very modern terminal (< 3 years old). I was sad to leave the aircraft as I knew it was time to work, I breezed through customs in major contrast to the last time in Israel. Maybe because it was 3 in the morning the customs officer might have been tired , she literally swiped my passport and handed it back to me without one question at all, which I found unusual.

After 20 minutes my bag came down the baggage belt, I was a little relieved since I wasn¡¦t sure how a 15 hour layover in FRA would impact my bag staying with me.

Chapter 4: "Is this a Le Mans race?"

I hopped in the first taxi I saw and the gentleman proceeded to drive 170-180 K/ph (>110Mph) all the way to downtown Tel Aviv. This guy was a true crazy man, but I was so tired I just cinched the seatbelt as tightly as possible and hung on. I got to my hotel about 0500 which was located right on the beach in downtown Tel Aviv.

In my past travel to Israel, I was working out ¡§in the suburbs¡¨ and so I never realized that Tel Aviv rivals NYC in terms of nightlife. The streets even at 5AM were full of people of all ages enjoying the excellent weather and summer in general.

At that point I was too tired to even think about walking around. Even though it was a Saturday, my client had arraigned to have a meeting at the hotel at 1600 hours that afternoon.

I was able to check in early and went right to my room, just in time to watch the sun coming up.

I passed out for 7 hours and then got to work, but I think I have written enough for now.  

Thanks for reading my trip report!

Very good first trip report!!! It's a pity that you have no photos. Nevertheless a very interesting report.

You write in your profile that you are a professional traveller. May I ask you what you do exactly? From autumn this year I'll have one year spare time with some salary. My plan is to fly as much as I can. I'm looking for a way to finance this plan. If you have any advices please let me know.

Will you make more trip reports in the future? I'd be glad to read more about your travels.

Regards,

Stefan

Well that's just a "smart/funny" answer. In reality I am a strategist and technology architect to the Telecomunications and Banking industires. I travel as a result 42-50 weeks a year.

If you have a year off, by all means buy an "around the world fare" they are an excellent value and very flexible. Every major alliance has them.

Wow! What an interesting and exhausting report. But very well done. Your personality shows through nicely. I certainly hoped your company/client reimbursed you well for those looooong layovers. I think I would have gone crazy. At least the LH Lounge in FRA had showers.

I've flown SFO/FRA with LH on the 744. Great trip and great service, but at least we were on time. My connex was to LIS, so no long distance and no long layover. But I know the feeling of sitting around an airport and onboard a delayed aircraft - it ain't fun!

For your first trip, you done well, my friend. Keep 'em coming and write about the smallest trip. I would hope some of the airline execs would read these threads and maybe learn from their best customers. Thanks again, amigo!

I do have some pictures I need to put on Photobucket and get up here. I left my good camera at home on accident so all I have is 1.3 mega pixel camera phone pictures.


The amenity kit was very basic. It contained socks, a toothbrush and toothpaste, ear plugs, an eye shade and a small tube of moisturizer, and ear covers for the headsets.

I should have also mentioned that the Recaro seats in the 744 and the A346 had hard wired Sennheiser noise cancelling headphones in the seat.

All the flights were good, even US !

Thanks for the feedback.

The trip back was even more crazy and involved TLV-VIE-FRA on OS, Overnight in FRA then US FRA-PHL-ORD-PHX so that one will take a while to write up  Smile

no, TLV has very strict security requirements.

Quoting RJpieces (Reply 13):

No they do this all the time. Expect 10-25 minutes of questioning and 40 minutes fo total screening, BEFORE you can even checkin for the flight  

Quoting RJpieces (Reply 13):
Which hotel were you at?

Park Plaza Yamit , not too fancy, but a great hotel for the price and not a dive at all. good reviews on expedia if you want to check it out.

Well Done! Keep the great trip reports coming. May I suggest the next time you condense the way you present the menu on each flight. I found the menu section to be a little long. Other than that minor thing, very good report!
