Lufthansa:  There's no Better Way to Fly

We knew the trip would be long and arduous.

We knew we had to go from Boston to Frankfurt to Berlin to Munich to Kiev and then back to Frankfurt and then on to Boston.

We knew we needed an airline that would ease the pain and the fuss, soothe the way.

We chose Lufthansa.

We made the right choice.

The company’s slogan: “There’s no better way to fly” sounds like a bit of hyperbole, yet it is right on target.

All the staff we came into contact with  - at airports, on the phone, in the Business Class lounges,  on the airplanes – were informed, courteous and helpful.

Flights were all on time or just a few minutes or so off time. They were pleasant, smooth, expedited in all respects. 

Both in economy and Business Class, one especially nice part of the Lufthansa experience was the information flow provided on board each and every plane we happened to be on. A cheerful welcome on board, time to destination, flying weather conditions , weather at the destination.

In Business Class, the sleeper seat is ergonomically shaped and adapts to any body shape.  By pushing a button this “PrivateBed” extends to a comfortable seven feet lounge with just a slight incline allowing one to lie almost completely flat. Undisturbed sleep is guaranteed - whether you lie on your side or on your back.  

And for those who must work – excellent conditions are there: a large work table, a laptop and file storage pocket, individual reading light – all smartly integrated into the seat that boasts a PC power point with that functions without an adaptor.

From its origin in 1926 when the first passengers used a ladder to climb into the Fokker-Grulich FII, Lufthansa has kept making major moves in the world of aviation. Its sterling reputation has come not by accident but through careful attention to details and passenger needs.

Many will find the company’s slogan: “There’s no better way to fly” – one they will take to heart.
