I didn't find a similar thread - hence a new one

NUE-CDG afternoon flight. I was surprised of the poached egg.

I presume the egg was cold?

In any case, disappointing. How is it possible that the Germans have better food than the French?

of course the egg was cold. however from German frequent flyer forums - everyone makes fun of the food that is served by Lufthansa on its European routes. Almost everyone hates the food served by Lufthansa.

Maybe the German frequent flyers should take a look at what AF and especially KL offers.

The Heimat concept on intra-EU flights is miles ahead of what AF and KL have.

For sure , LH J food is not always the best you can find on EU flights , but at least you get served a hot meal on longer EU distance trips, what AF does not provide any more even for flights of 4h30 duration .

The same meal with the poached egg was served on LHR-CDG. The good news is that we are back to a "normal" service on those UK routes

It would be interesting how much the CDG inbound catering varies in a month. I hope that not all inbound flights get the same meal.

On my last LH trip CDG-FRA I had some almost inedible stuff from "Leipzig". The same crap was served two weeks later on FRA-CDG - maybe bad luck.

My LH experience is not that extensive, but I've been served different meals for breakfast on two consecutive morning flights with a FRA connection. I agree with Fabo.sk, the Heimat concept is quite nice, and definitely way better than KL's crappy Wonderful Wanders Box.

Again cold I guess... I think AF went from one of the best in Europe to the worse airline now... I can't think of any other airline that doesn't serve hot meals in Business Class and that's down to them not properly sizing ovens on the A220. They need to face a barrage of complaints.

This was served on GOT-CDG Sunday evening, wasn't too bad but certainly would have been better warm. Was surprised by the green paste when I realised it was essentially mushy peas mushed too the max, again I prefer my mushy peas warm... Meanwhile I spotted an Ulti that was upgraded to an empty row 2 after boarding, hello if you're reading! They had enough meals for all of us.

CDG-IST Monday scheduled 9.15 was I think a bagel with salmon slices on, didn't partake for this as already eaten in the lounge. Also a basket of chocolate shortbread and "2 Rochers Praline" was given out. Overall a good service from the crew, they disappeared for the last hour or so of the flight, but till then they were regularly checking on the cabin.

Having flown FCO-AMS on KL - their catering gets only points in package design. Not sure whether I should open a KLM catering photo thread in the KL subforum

Their couscous salad was plenty but absolutely not to my taste - the falafel were a joke and the passion fruit looked and smelled like a Dr. Oetker instant powder mousse that I would not even touch in a coach class menu 🤪

At least now I can understand why many are moaning over AF/KL catering 😂

No need, there already is one. There's also a thread on pandemic catering.

All the pics you could ever wish for.
