Love of an Airlines:  Lufthansa

The trip was going to be arduous at any time; however, in these times of heightened security, flight delays, weird weather and cut backs in quality up and down the line, we knew we had to be smart in our choice of an airlines. After all we were flying New York City to Frankfort to Istanbul and returning Paris to New York City.  As seasoned and sometimes disappointed travelers we knew a  lot of discomfort and angst could be part of our flying experience.

That’s why we chose Lufthansa. We had flown this superior German airlines before and were quite satisfied. This time around was more of the same - -quality control, punctuality, efficiency, courteous staff up and down the line.

We flew Business Class, what a pleasure. From the executive lounges in the airports, to the ample space on the plane, the highly comfortable seats that reclined into comfy beds, the flight attendants who were always available and concerned about our being – this was the way flying was meant to be.

On all the legs of our journey announcements from the flight deck were unobtrusive but informative. Food was served on real dishes with real cutlery. And although airlines food is generally something to complain about, we had no complaints about what we were served.

It seems to us that with the economic downturn, the new normalcy is characterized in all sectors by niggardliness, a lack of attention to details, and sloppiness.

Fortunately, this is not the case on Lufthansa. It remains an over-the-top, premier airlines, and one that is so easy to love.
