Interesting! I was on Premium Economy few months ago and OS was much better than LH.

Having said that, OS had upgraded meal in PE when LH had regular Y meal.

LH was not terrible and had a choice in Y.

Flights were MRU-VIE and DXB-FRA.

To anyone interested, there was only 1 meal selection in Economy class on our LH FRA-MCO flight last week.
Interesting, the flight was catered by Gate Gourmet rather than LHG SkyChefs which I thought was owned by LH.

LH sold LSG to GateGourmet. No more catering owned by LH.

Meals are nowadays

Economy: 1 choice, usually veg. pasta
PremiumEconomy: 2 choices, the veg pasta from Economy + another usually with meat

That explains it. I had not heard that so this is good to know. No more good German meals.

Yes, vegetarian pasta was the offering on both my OS and LH flights. No thanks.
While the meal is just a small part of the overall experience, I think I will stick with DL/KL/AF where there are still 2 meals choices in Economy.
Danke.

Airlines specify what the caterer is supposed to deliver, the location of the HQ of the company (gategourmet is based in Switzerland) doesn't really matter...

LH didn't serve a warm meal on FRA-AMM, just this very dry cheese sandwich:



OS did serve a warm meal on TLV-VIE, albeit no choice just vegetarian pasta:

Apologies, I wasn’t aware LH group has hit all time low. To be honest I am not sure what the other airlines are offering but the Sandwich looks sad.

Wow, that crap sandwich on AMM-FRA is horrific.

No worries - luckily I'd eaten in the lounge before FRA-AMM, so the sandwich was more of an amusement than anything

The pasta was tasty, although as you can see from the photo there was more tray than food.

I flew on RyanSwiss bet ZRH & TLV twice in the past 2 weeks. It was on a 321 they used to serve a full hot meal and now its a cold snack both at lunch and dinner time

To make matters worse the seats didnt recline

it would be 1 thing had the LH Group had LCC fares but they have Full Fares and treat you as if its an LCC

It's bad out there. I was surprised myself when I flew LIS-FRA in October, 2021 and service was still water and a small chocolate bar unless you wanted to pay. My previous LH flight had been in early March, 2020 and the difference was staggering.
