The food on the Lufthansa flight (business class) Seoul-Frankfurt was nothing short of an abomination. It was no better in the other direction, by the way, but I didn’t take photos then. A great way to diet, but I wasn’t aiming to! The salad to start was rather nasty – just some bits of lettuce with some tasteless bits of olive and less-than-crispy croutons.
Yes it is beef
The main course was beef, which arrived looking a rather strange colour – even for airline food. It was edible, but really only just and far below the standard one would usually expect in a business class cabin. The accompanying mash and vegetables were equally bland. The wine sweet and near-corked. There was a choice of red wines – “French” or “Italian”. Hmmm – how informative. None of the flight attendants seemed to know any more than that either. Really NOT the sort of quality and service you pay a business class ticket for. I tried the “Italian” and it was undrinkable. So I swapped to the “French” and found it little better. I abandoned it, shortly before abandoning the rest of my meal.
Dessert was not the greatest either. It was some sort of pastry with cherries and some sort of apricot puree attached to the side. It looks much better in the photo than it was. It was simultaneously too dry and too sweet. The small bit missing in the photo wasn’t a mouse, by the way – that’s the little bit that I ate.
