- complain about the FA's English.
- complain that the FAs do not want to listen to your full life story.
- complain about the poor selection of US newspapers
- wonder why your partner travelling Y is not allowed to join you in F

This is clearly the most brilliant post I have seen so far on FT (and there are many great ones here). Thanks Rambuster, you made my day!

  • Plan an overnight stay in ZRH/FRA/MUC in order to be at the lounge door at opening hour.

-Enter and exit Germany a couple of times in each one of your multiple stopovers in FRA throughout the day, in order to sample the Arrivals lounge.

-Complain that their shower rooms are too claustrophobic compared to the FCLs and that no duckies were provided for your comfort.

-Complain that the duckies are farmed and not the original ones. Much like everything on LH F.

-Ask for seat blocking to be activated in your couch while in the FCT.

-Grab at least 50 free T-Mobile internet passes and sell them to the plebes outside a SEN lounge. Sell the wasserdischt ones at a premium on e-Bay.

-Find at least 3 corked bottles of wine (you have to sample at least 200 bottles). Duly report and complain.

IMHO, this is the best thread of the week

Easily beating the "Girl Friend not allowed to fly from Canada to US" one from Tuesday.

-Be sure to tell the other passengers they were idiots for paying 8.000 EUR for their FRA/ORD flight when they could have routed via Doha and received real first class service, an extra 10000 miles, and another 9 hours of the experience.

Dude, how come I missed this one!

I guess this thread could be renamed as:

All you can eat / drink with 1000 EUR max!!

If the PA for some reason would not fulfill this demand, make sure to inform her that you are to arrive 10 minutes after any body else to the limo departure area , and while you are at it , make a serious complaint about the very slow elevators .

- Get hit by a car walking to the FCT on the upper ramp. Then sue LH for liability and settle for lifetime HON membership with access the FCT whenever you want.

Book the latest F flight and spend the whole day at the FCT.
