Cons: "Flight took after 1.5 hours delay , with 30 min incremental delay notifications. After take-off, food service started 2 or 2.5 hours later , they could have expdited it considering that the flight was delayed. Seats ,as I have come to expect from Lufthansa , were cramped laterally ,although i was pleasantly surprised with how much they reclined, given my low expectations. Main dish in the Food service was served hot but were quite minimal in taste/quantity & variety comapred to other inter-continental providers. I was feeling hungry most of the flight and couldnt sleep as well."
Pros: "flight left on time"
Cons: "arrived on time with no problems"
Cons: "I couldn't use the entertainment pack because I didn't have it downloaded on my iPad. I was told to download it when we boarded onto the plain. But at that point i couldn't access wifi. The 7-hours flight could have been more memorable if I could access the entertainment pack."
