Thought for the day….”Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on when others have let go”
“Life is not a rehersal, it is the real thing”.
I get to fly a lot, and one of the things that I am noticing more and more are the cutbacks on the airlines. I used to be a shareholder in Lufthansa, but I am happy that I am no longer one. Today’s photo is of the ‘meal’ served on a recent Lufthansa flight. It did come with tea or coffee though, although the small size of this ‘meal’ is quite incredible. I wonder how Lufthansa can advertise this as a meal? Not even served on a tray, and only half a sandwich. Two pieces of bread and a piece of cheese. That was the ‘meal’. And, as usual, the coffee came in small cups (paper) which they only half fill. Why?? Things like this, and the fact that the Lufthansa group are now charging for choosing a seat or checking in a bag, are just going to drive me to the budget airlines. Before, there was an advantage to choosing one of the ‘legacy’ airlines. Not now. The news that seating onboard the new Lufthansa A321’s will be even closer than on Ryanair, and that the extra seats in the back of the aircraft will be windowless, will also make people choose the cheaper airlines. No point in paying more for less. Certainly, the ‘meal’ from Lufthansa would not encourage me to pay extra again. Luckily, we have a choice…….
