On the day of flight, I took the S-Bahn and arrived the airport at 10:15am. I had already completed the online check-in the night before and with my BP saved on my phone. Besides, I did not have any check baggage so I can head directly to the security checkpoint.

I went to a restaurant nearby and ordered a spaghetti for lunch.

I spent 50 minutes there and then I decided to return to the gate and waited for my flight. As time went by, I could assume the loading was quite high by counting the people waiting in front of the gate.

At 12:09pm, my plane finally arrived from Hamburg. D-AIUR, an A320-200 with winglet version which was delivered in February 2016. This plane is equipped with the high density configuration of 180 seats.

Next to our gate parked the B747-400 of Thai International Airways HS-TGG arrived from Bangkok as TG924. It is really rare to spot a B747 now.

Pushback eventually started at 13:11pm. Flight time was expected to be one hour. "Christmas express to Hamburg is ready to go" said by the pilot.

At 13:58pm, I visited the lavatory, you can see the space inside was really really small for this A320 configuration.

The water basin was so tiny. As I was inside the lavatory, the seatbelt sign was on and followed by the announcement of descend, so I immediately returned to my seat.
