Hurry! Aeroplan allowing Swiss first class bookings!
« Reply #75 on: December 02, 2017, 07:39:43 PM »
I've never been disappointed by LH. Only good and fantastic.
I have, they had a very young FA who clearly didn't have a lot of experience, working F when I flew. The whole experience was still great but it definitely took away something. I was expecting this flawless service that everyone talks about and it was definitely not that.

Our LH F was far from flawless.
LX F was flawless.

Neither are in the league of NH/SQ.

I agree, SQ was a different league. Although I will say the food on LH was way better than anything else I've had, though I didn't end up having a KSML on SQ so I can't compare to that.

Surprised that you'd rank NH F above LH/LX in terms of service

LH F KSML ex FRA is my second favorite to BA F ex LHR. I prefer it to non-LHR hermolis

It's not even in the same ballpark. NH F was bliss.

Were we on the same flight? I don't remember it being bad, but I also don't recall it being memorable.

NH F is really nice and arguably the best use of 93k MR when the bonus rolls around. But was no better than the other top F products out there.

You were probably running a fever, puking, or busy finding your lost passport. Also probably 50 steps behind me.

That's contradictory. If it's not better than the rest, there are much cheaper options for F than 93k

It's RT in F to many destinations in Asia for 93k MR, you can't beat that.

I'm a sucker for Asian and especially Japanese hospitality.

I thought the bed was excellent, my glass was never empty, the top shelf drinks flowed freely throughout the flight, extra amenity kits and pajamas were provided for my wife back home and to replace the pair that was used during the flight, there was no hemming or hawing about my BYOK or making up an empty seat as my bed, etc.

So yes, I loved my NH F experience. Much better than anything Europe has to offer.

Interesting data point: I had booked TLV-ZRH-EWR in Swiss First for 115,000. I just called aeroplan, and after HUCAing Aeroplan, they rebooked me in United Polaris DIRECT TLV-EWR on the 777-300ER. While I understand that to most people this wouldn’t be an upgrade, to me it’s l’chatchila. Seems that they’re desperate to re-accommodate. Just figured I’d share...
