German conversation – August

Holiday season again for many but few of us would be excited at the prospect of an aircraft meal nowadays;those hard rolls,curry with unidentifiable meat and claggy puddings in plastic pots.But in Germany an on-line supermarket is convinced there is a market for them and has joined forces with Lufthansa to start home deliveries.The best thing about the meals?Perhaps being able to eat them without someone in front of you suddenly reclining their seat and shoving your food into your lap!

We have had some interesting reports about members’ holidays recently–but nobody has even mentioned aircraft meals.
