Im due to travel from LHR-FRA-Shanghai and return again on 20th July and 10th August. I know that on return we arrive back on LHR at 22.00. I was wondering what aircraft would be used and what is LH service (pitch, service, PTVs etc.)?
And of course a report will be posted!

You'll most likely fly A300 and B744 on those routes (in case you fly via FRA and not via MUC). The seat pitch on the longhaul is comparable to most other airlines I have flown on. (BA, AF, SQ, UA, DL, IB), the pitch on the short-haul will be an inch or two more. You're most likely to get decent, but not really delicious, food; and expect a professional, although not really open-heartily crew. LH does not have PTVs (I suppose we're talking about Y class), likely 2 movies will be shown on the long-haul.

Your FRA/LHR flight which arrives at 2200 is going to be an A321 Im quite sure. I have taken this flight three times now and it has always been the same.
Each time we arrived at LHR ahead of schedule but then we ending up waiting a good 15 minutes for a gate at terminal 2 to free up. On each time its been a gate for a Transaero (?)flight to Moscow which LH is waiting for.
