The picture below prompted me to ask if LH tend to cruise slower than other airlines. A few years ago I was on a BA 777 crossing the Atlantic to JFK and we passed a LH 343 like it was standing still. It was a little higher than us like the LH 744 in the picture. I know there alot of variables that determine cruise speed and was wondering if this a coincedence or does LH actually fly slower.
