After arriving from Albany, we get quickly to the Admirals Club.
CLT used to be a hub for US Airways, this Admirals Club is indeed a former US Airways Club, i.e. a Star Alliance lounge. As part of that time agreements, Lufthansa elite passengers are welcomed to use this lounge.
The lounge is big. At that time of the day, it's easy to find some available seats.
The masterpiece of the lounge is this bright dome.
Outside views on the planes, some of them being already painted with the New American color.
Press with only 2 choices. Mogoy would like it though ;)
Corporate pic on the computer in free use in the business area.
The buffets has been recently reported by Kévin here. My selection for tonight.
Our beers finished, we are on our way to gate C10. Corridors are crowded !
Main cabin boarding has just start. As First Class and elite passengers (Emerald for Pititom and Sapphire for myself), we can use the priority lane.
On board, real business class in 2-2 config. Blankets are already disposed.
Comfortable pitch in this first class section.
Pre-departure beverage. Why does Pititom have a straw but not me ?
Our neighbor, Airbus A321.
While taxiing, we have some views on downtown Charlotte.
For this 1h46 flight, the catering consists in some snacks.
Drinks. Here again, could you guess why does Pititom have a straw but not me ? ;)
After a quick nap, start of descent.
Nice views on downtown Manhattan by night !
And here we are in JFK, welcomed by this pair of BA's 747.
We get out the plane fast. So fast the gate is not opened yet to let us inside :D
23h49, we are more than 10min ahead schedule.
Thank you for reading my 99th flight-report :)

Charlotte - CLT
New York - JFK
Company : Comfortable plane. I wish I had a refill after the first drink. Very good on-time performance.
Lounge : quiet & comfy at that time. Catering is very poor, but the brownies were very good !
Departure airport : crowded with all the evening flights.
Arrival airport : I've never seen JFK so empty and quiet ! Hotels shuttles are not convenient : Airtrain + phone call + wait for the shuttle...
