I must add LX F to my list of flying experiences.
Your recent TR has got me wanting to try QF to Oz. We are thinking about going next year so am on the lookout for another great QF sale.

Not so noticeable on my HKG-ZRH trip. 7 men, an overnight flight and 1 bathroom was not ideal but didn't cause any great queues.

By contrast, on my ZRH-JFK flight last year the cabin was almost full (11/12) with 4 women and 7 men. There was a permanent queue for the last 1.5 hours of the flight.

Thanks for the trip report. Jet dom business class doesn't seem like it was giving up the direct flight for.

It was interesting from a point of view of writing a trip report and sampling a different product.

BIH, thanks much for referencing me to your TR. Fantastic work (just the type of language and formatting for a TR that makes me want to read on). And yeah, it also answered my questions about BOM.

Thanks Again.

What a fantastic report. I just finished mine and know how much work it is to write a such detailed report. Thank you.

The Chief FA (I didnít catch the title that LH use)
They are called Purser like on a cruise ship. If they have two purser on board one is the chief purser and the second is the assistant purser. Only f/a with a high seniority and special training can become purser.

Thanks, good to know. Whilst it was delightful for him to speak to each F passenger, it really did hold up the lunch service.

Very nice trip report. I just flew TG F FCO-BKK and BKK-CDG and the "hit or miss" is exactly right. When they do it right, it's great. When they miss, it's really dismal. But the Royal First Lounge in BKK is supreme. IMHO, the best F class lounge anywhere in the world.
