Likewise, welcome to Airliners. Sadly, the world is full of people who simply write to provoke a response.

Wow. The presentation of the meal is so classy, not. Sure it's a short flight and a hot meal is welcome. But aluminium foil in business class? A sturdy plastic container could be substituted - maybe the kind that EK used to have in economy. They could be recycled rather than just scrapped, but I kno...Jump to post
Good trip report and once again, it is pleasing to see that you also wrote a report rather than simply posting a link to somewhere else. I do enjoy a good read. The service seems reasonable for the flight duration. Is this one of the routes that CX plan to move over to Hong Kong Airlines? If so, it ...Jump to post

Hi ClassicLover! Another excellent trip report there! Love all your pictures in places in Australia that I haven't managed to visit.

Nice report! ... I dont think ive ever landed into a non gusty geraldton! Thank you for your comments.

Hi once more, Allrite. After reading your report I am pleased to see that you ended on a positive note. You still have a journey ahead of you but at least you're optimistic at this point.

Hi Zolagola! What a fantastic day out. Lufthansa certainly spared no expense in this special flight. No wonder there was a queue at the buffet in HAM.

Great report on a seldom covered destination. I'm glad that you and MrsG enjoyed your trip.
