I hope that Lufthansa takes over.
They're still OK but I've noticed a drop in standards over the years. Where low-cost airlines go, others follow.
Turkish Airlines (not so great in Business Class but otherwise good - excellent lounges, always on time) would be ideal.
"Noise survey of 50 carriers landing at Heathrow finds Polish airline is the loudest"
Polish planes landing at Heathrow are the loudest the first ever 'league-table' of airline noise reveals today. By contrast, British Airways' short-haul services are the quietest new data released as part of Heathrow's new 'Fly Quiet' programme shows. The worst offender is Polish airline LOT, in last place, just ahead of Israeli carrier national El Al in 49th place and Thai Airways in 48th place.
It seems to be all about the age of their fleet.
