Sorry, I have to break off the Cathay Pacific train, as I have never flown them. I fly frequently to London, and generally fly British Airways for convenience, as well as good service, but once I did fly Lufthansa, and it was excellent, enough to prompt me to say that they are my favourite airline. I'd like to fly KLM, because I hear they are very good, but in order to fly KLM for an hour on the AMS-LHR route, I'd have to fly Northwest for over 7 hours, and to me that just ain't worth it. I think that the Lufthansa crew was very professional, plus the showed the moving-map-display the entire flight, except during the movie and a news presentation. Terminal 1 in Frankfurt is recently been re-done, yet already smells like cigarette smoke. The clean cut LH operation is consolidated all to Terminal 1, as well as all Star® partners. Obviously I speak English, but I also speak German, but the only time that was needed, was when I went to the observation deck, and Herpa shop. The guy there didn't speak English. BTW, if you are at FRA, the last time I was there the observation deck was DM5 (around US$2.50) and worth it. You can see the whole field, just make sure it's a nice day, or be prepared to weather the elements. The day I was there the café was closed so we had to stand outside in driving rain, but it was definitely worth it. I've kind of got off track, all I meant to say was, Deutsch Lufthansa is my favourite airline.
