Munich - JFK LH 410 In Flight

Fri Jul 08, 2005 4:28 am

Hello everyone,
Although not the first one to write from 37,000 feet, it's a first for me.
I am halfway throught the flight from MUC to JFK of today, July 7.
D-AIGK ( 340 - 300)
Took off at 3:51 local time ( 21 mijnutes late)
Estimated arrival time 6:40 p.m. local time
The latest info from the F/O is that we will be using 31R for landing and that numerous cranes arfe operating at JFK (I suppose we have almost finished the AA terminal then)
Wind direction is 040 and is at 10 km/h. Clouds 8/8 ( overcast) and 600 meters height.
Visibiility is 16 Km.
We are flying outside the 6 main Atlantic "highways: with a routing that took us to the southernmost tip of Greenland. Incredible view over the land with no clouds and thousands of icebergs dloating in the water.
On board life is easy, Y is packed solid, C is almost full and in F we are 4 people. A glass of 1989 Champagne Henriot cuvee des enchanteleurs is keeping me company. well, I spoke too soon...a mild turbolence is here...anyhow... I hope to provide more updates later. Cheers!

I ahve about 1 hr and 55 minutes before landing.
Smooth ride which is going to take us over Labrador and Boston and then over Long Island and JFK.
I think that F on LH is simply outstanding. True, the seats are seats and not beds, still they recline 180 degrees and the service is superb. Because of only half cabin the service is extremely attentive and friendly. The purser spoke with the F/O about my passion for airplanes and he is sending a stream of messges to my seat updating me on the flight status and regretting that I cannot join them in the cabin.
I will add the full menu later or but let me say that the 2 rounds of ossetra caviar are always a good start.
I like this product much better that AF and BA and at least on par ( if not better - now don't flame please - than SQ). They will have to drag me out of the seat!

Vermeer,

Sounds really good !
Have seen pictures on A.net of First Class and it looks very tempting; did you ever try LH's EWR service (by BBJ) ???
don't throw away tomorrow !

Glad to see MUC-JFK is doing well....Do they always operate A343s with First Class on this route? 4 out of 8 doesn't seem so great, but you said the J cabin was mostly full?

Talk about LH and wireless internet on board....
