Club Kitchen

From now on I will take sandwiches/biscuits from the lounge, if available, and bring on board. It is happening too often lately, especially on day time flights, that the Club kitchen is zeroed out and when feeling hungry nothing except bags of nuts are available. Coming back from ICN on a busy flight last Sunday there was nothing available within 3 hours of the flight being in the air. Take note, bring food on board.

On scores of LH flights east and west over 2 decades I have never taken anything from the CW kitchen other than water.

Young Pox swears the chocolate selection in Y is better though (or possibly more plentiful)!

On several recent DME flights there was no club kitchen setup AT ALL. Lazy crew I guess - got some Avios compensation.

I know its a first world problem but I was pretty hungry and looking for some snacks for the loooooong drive to the city due to the usual Moscow traffic problems.

Yes I did, hence they offered me the only thing they had left, the nuts handed out at the start.

It seems that the shorter routes dont seem to have much at all.

London - Montreal had very very little

I fully agree, do not rely on the Club Kitchen, availability of food is not consistent. BYO.

On my flight back from Vancouver, girlfriend was peckish so headed downstairs to the kitchen. She came back with what she thought was a choc ice, but a CC member spotted it and stopped her just in time - it was a freezer bag

Is the Club Kitchen available to F passengers or do they have their own one. I've only ever heard of the Club one mentioned.

In F you can have anything from the menu at any time, so no need for a larder. If it's still available you can enjoy it. They will also raid the J menu if you want or ask for something that is there but not in F. Once Mrs Greenpen and I had one F omelette and one J omelette as there was only the single F one left. By the way, both were dry and not very good but the F one came with some sort of green sauce that allowed it to progress to the stomach more easily.

Very little left about 30 mins after opening on the recent JFK 175 I was on.

Thatís what F is all about, extra green sauce.

Iíve never had any problems with the Club Kitchen, then again I always have a stash of items from the lounge or from home with me.
