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

Basic economy experience needs to be at least on par with other airlines. Gate agent was rude and singled us out to step aside. Bags were lost despite paying for then, and claim agent told me it was because I was basic economy.
