D-AINC took me from Frankfurt few days ago and it still operated the Frankfurt-Hamburg route today, while D-AILC operated the flight to Munich.

After the plane spotting, I found that there was a long queue in front of the security check, so I needed to be hurried. As I reached the gate, there was already many people waiting. As expected, an announcement was made informing that due to late inbound of the aircraft, our flight will be delayed.

Boarding commenced at 13:10pm. I chose the left window seat at the last 4th row. The new A320 of Lufthansa adopts the same seat arrangement with A320neo, so you cannot tell the different from the cabin inside. As far as I can see, the loading was closed to 100%. The first 3 rows were assigned as business class section.

Cabin during boarding. There was an announcement explaining that the delay was due to the bad weather condition in Munich. He mentioned that due to the presence of freezing fog in Munich, the aircraft had to be deiced before take off from Munich. Flight time was expected to be one hour.

As we approached Munich, we were able to observe the fog layer. The fog layer was formed at very low altitude, once we passed through we were very close to the ground.

When I read the shopping catalogue, I found that Lufthansa released an Aviationtag which was made from the original sheet metal of the scrapped 747, D-ABVC. The tag is limited to 2000pcs. Without any hesitation, I decided to buy one for my own collection. Therefore, I headed straight to Lufthansa Worldshop once I left the aircraft. I was hoping to get the blue one but they only have white version left.
