Air India or Lufthansa anyone?

Hello

I am currently looking at booking some (cheapish) flights to India. the current choice seems to be Air India or Luftthansa. As everyone slates Air India for being absolutely terrible - would LH be a better choice?

Any advice appreciated.

Sorry, but I think you generally answered your question. Lufthansa, to me, would be the better choice. From what I've also read about Air India any savings are not worthwhile flying them.

Not a fan of Lufthansa but preferable to Air India. I normally find best fares to India with Emirates - obviously depends where and when you are travelling. Worth checking out Emirates prices - a much better airline than LH or AI.

I've flown Lufthansa to India many times - all in economy - and found them to be absolutely fine.
