Lufthansa claims to be more Indian than you think across their marketing communications in India. And then, they have in many instances where their Indian customers are treated at the bottom of the ladder when travelling from Europe to India. Just last week, they refused a solo Indian passenger a hotel room because she was travelling alone. In July, they made a couple wait for two days in Frankfurt, because they had a misconnection on Lufthansa. No rooms or compensation again. What gives, Lufthansa?
Lufthansa has taken the opportunity to wish their Indian patrons Independence Day with some special gifts and souvenirs. They indeed are More Indian Than you Think.

Anyhow, I’m glad to report the mess is now sorted, and Lufthansa is all set to fly their maiden A380 flight to Delhi today. Here is how the schedule will look like going forward for Lufthansa’s Delhi service with the A380. LH760 FRA1340 – 0130+1DEL 388 DLH761 DEL0330 – 0720FRA 388 D That makes Emirates,…
A380s are clearly the newest attractions for Indian flyers, ever since they were cleared for take off from select Indian airports. Singapore Airlines took the lead, then Emirates brought in their A380 to Mumbai. Earlier this year, Lufthansa had stated their intention to start operations for the A380 in India from the winter schedule, which got into effect from this past weekend. Lufthansa’s original plan was to start flights to Mumbai and Delhi on the A380, however they got a rude shock when the Mumbai slot was allocated to Emirates instead, after being promised to them.

In the beginning of the year, I wrote my credit card strategy for 2014. I’ve been meaning to give a mid-year update, but not been able to do so far.

I intend to keep it and use it as my primary card to book airline tickets and make use of all the special Citibank promotions that come 3-4 times a year, such…
