This series will cover a short trip on LH from Munich to Hamburg. Instead of flying directly from Munich to Hamburg, I purchased a ticket which created a transit at Frankfurt airport. The reason was that I really wanted to try the A320neo of Lufthansa. People might think that this is absolutely nonsense.

2. LH020 FRA -> HAM Here
3. LH2069 HAM -> MUC Here

In the morning, I took a bus and S-Bahn and arrived at the airport at 10:15am. As I didn't have any checked baggage, so I printed out the boarding pass at a automatic machine. I went to a bank and withdrew some money before going through the security check.

Our gate was assigned at G26. When I got to the gate, the parking slot was still occupied by an A321 of Lufthansa, but I forgot to check where the plane was flying to. I found a seat next to the gate and read my ebook on mobile phone.

Very soon, my plane arrived after the departure of the A321. D-AINC would be taking me to Frankfurt and then to Hamburg today.

Boarding was started at 11:39am. I chose a window seat at the second exit row, 12A. Boarding was completed in no time, and I guessed the loading was about 60% only. My neighboring seat was unoccupied and a guy was seating in the aisle seat.

Seat is identical with other A320 series. There is a diagram at the back of the tray which teaches you how to open the exit door.

Pushback commenced at 11:57am, 3 minutes ahead of schedule. Air China A330-200, B-5918 parked next to us preparing for the flight back to Shanghai Pudong as CA828

Once the seatbelt sign was off, my seat mate went to the lavatory. Due to the sunlight reflection, it was hard to take good pictures so I decided to move to 11F at the right side.

Drink was then served and I opted for apple juice.

I went through the Lufthansa magazine. Topic of the month would be the retirement of the 737 series. The picture at the upper left was actually the B737-400 which flew for Lufthansa for a a short period of time in the mid 1990s.

    Thanks for this report,

    I think it was a good decision to get occasion to try the A320neo.

    Lufthansa is offering biscuit and drinks on this really short-haul flight, which is not so easy to do!

    Unfortunately you were boarding in Munich in "old" terminal and not this new one opened last.

    Thanks for this FR.
    I totally understand adding one stop on a domestic flight just to get on a new aircraft ;-)
    Decent service, the flight duration doesn't permit much more anyway...

    Benoit75008: At the end, this was a good experience with A320neo which I did not regret at all~

    KL651: Well, apparently there wasn't much to expect for such a short hop.
