Also recently flew KIX
) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA on one! The IFE was none existant for the first hour a guy with a pony tail (i assume to be the engineer from rockwell)was making frantic attemps to get it working! eventually had to reboot the whole system. The crew were a bit anoyed as they had to do the saftey demonstration manually.
I personally found the Lufthansa long haul experience very poor and uncomfortable, not a patch on BA
or KLM and miles behind BMI
Try row 26 A,B,G or H in economy window exit seats! good leg room but no window & the Recardo seats are awful!
The guy sat next to me said the A340-600 was far more comfortable than the B747-400, so I dread to think what they are like!
The flight was late into KIX
the Pilot said the origional aircraft had gone Tech & required an engine change so D-AIHI substituted, less than 2 weeks old at the time so I suppose it may have had a few teething problems!
Have to say the A340-600 is very smooth and very quiet & the flex in the wings is really something in a bit of chop!
