Movies were really old. Earphones provided were terrible. Plane departed 30 minutes late. Passengers had to wait that time for 40 others who dribbled in from a connecting flight.

I choose Lufthansa cause it’s a good airline with great quality but this one was soo old and poor. Food was terrible. Blankets and pillows very old, looked like they were like used. The chairs were soo uncomfortable
