LH F meal in Jan/Feb ex FRA/MUC to the US is pathetic (again)

Per my recent experience I must report, that the meal offerings are pathetic this month (and next month). When I talked to the purser she completely agreed and said, that a couple people complained already.

Wine selections went down as well. Who the hell needs a Zweigelt, aside that it is from Austria.

I will probably move my next scheduled trip from February to March in order to avoid this meal again.

BTW, purser told me, that the business class meal is not any better.

nothing wrong with wine selection

Sorry, but disagree about wine selection.

LH offers in F/C a selection that includes some well known wines (French Bordeaux or Burgundy, Calfornian Cabernet/Sauvignon, Australian Shiraz etc.) and one which is a bit less common but meets the same quality standards. For the red this is currently a very pleasant Zweigelt from Austria, it will be something else later this year.

I often like to taste a glass of wine which I don't get every day in each and every restaurant. In fact also the current Zweigelt was delicious and I certainly recommend anyone who gets the chance to taste it.^

In contrast I find wine selection on many other airlines rather boring ...

F wine selection is usually interesting

I have never been disappointed with the F wine menu.
On the recent flights I had in Nov/Dec, I liked almost everything on it, including the champagnes. I guess they opened 4 bottles on GRU FRA because all the guests liked the champagne - with the UD only half full.
And I did enjoy the Michel Rolland Clos de la Siete in the air.^
Curious how it will taste at home...

As for the food, my impression is, it has become less tasty and less inspired since they introduced the étagère concept again. But how much more do you really want to eat?
However, the FCT food beats the onboard food every time IMHO.

I absolutely agree with SoG's observation. Food quality on board in both C and F has been declining so badly over the recent months that I regularly don't bother anymore to wait for dinner service on night flights.

I was also hoping for an improvement in January and experienced the same disappointment as SoG. Unfortunately I can not wait until March...

The options to/from Asia aren't something to write home about either.

And another interesting datapoint: the "express dine" option from FRA to SIN in F had very strange similarities with one of the 3 main dishes offered in C. Seems like they don't even really bother that much anymore as to present an express option with a real F dish...

Great! And LH would have saved some money again. Exactly what they wanted. What a brilliant plan.

I flew FRA-JFK last week and found the food excellent. The starter display of three tiers was impressive, and the fish main course was nice and tasty.

The crew were excellent as well ^
