Frankfurt's weather was pretty good that day. However, dark clouds moved in later in the day just as I boarded my flight for London.

Lufthansa's sandwiches are not bad. There is a lot of cheese and the ham was OK :

One of my biggest disappointments was the flight approach to Heathrow. We didn't fly over central London from the east. Instead, I think we flew away from London and made a 180-degree turn to land from the west. I thought the flight path over central London was quite popular and I purposedly booked a window seat to take advantage of the view.

Overall Thoughts

Lufthansa's service is quite consistent. Sandwiches and drinks are standard for the intra-European flights, and the flight attendants are very courteous. I especially liked Frankfurt airport. Free newspapers are abundant throughout the Lufthansa gates. I helped myself to a number of English papers. There were a lot of German papers as well. Too bad there wasn't much entertainment on board. Although the flight was short, I wanted to see a map of the flight path and where we were.
