I can't believe that no one has said AirNZ!!!!
Why not take AN to Sydney and then AirNZ to LAX and the LH to FRA. Much better. then you get a real experience of the three airlines in the top 20 in the world.
Service..... Simply superb!! Food is great, flight attendants very friendly!!
PTV's..... Are getting installed now and will be placed on the SYD-LAX v.v flight first due to how long it is.
If you are flyin in July then you will get them.
Luthansa is also meant to be very good. But remember PTV's are not everything.
Remeber AirNZ offer the best seatpitch in the skies, with a wooping 34"!!!! oh my god!!!!
If you donot want to do so many connections thenm i recommened Korean Air.
State of the art Airport opening in March. The newest in the world!! Woohooo!
Very good service!! I can tell you that, planes very nice and on almost every flight you take wth them you will have a Western pilot.
PTV's are out on Flights now!! So you will get the PTV. I bet once you fly Korean Air you will want to keep flyin them. The FA's also speak very good enghlish compared to most other Asian Carriers.
I recommened AirNZ, Ansett, Luthansa or Korean Air.
Remember Korean Air has not had an Incident since 1997/8.
AirNZ: The worlds warmest welcome!!
