I don´t think LH
´s Y-Class product is THAT bad. Of course, you don´t get PTVs unless you fly on the A332 or B763 which is astonishing considering most major airlines have installed or are installing new IFE systems at least on their flagships (which would be the B744 or A346 in LH
But: I have flown a lot on LH
longhaul and was never treated in an appropriate way. Yes, you might not get as many (faked or not) smiles as on SQ
or a nice amenity package as on MH
but the service is consistent, efficient and professional.
And yes, the A340 is a slow climber but from a general passenger´s perspective a very nice airplane (quiet, 2-4-2 configuration in Y-Class).
I like to fly LH
, even in Coach Class, because they heve never disappointed me, flights are more punctual than on many many other carriers and the seat pitch is just the usual crapmped 31" you get on most of the other airlines flying transatlantic as well.
Would be nice to read a trip report after you´ve finished your flights.
