Although I already got my mobile boarding pass, I still printed one out from one of the machine. Since there were a lot of time, I visited the observation deck to do some spotting.

At around 14:20pm, I thought it was about time to go airside. There were just few people at the security check and I was through at 14:32pm. The gate for my flight was assigned at C16, my plane had already arrived and this is the second newest A321-200 of Lufthansa, D-AIDW, delivered to Lufthansa in January 2015.

Back of the seat. In the middle of boarding, a man asked if I could switch the seat with him so that he could seat with his girlfriend. I was fine with that as the seat was just one row behind.

At 15:16pm, boarding was completed and I guess the loading was closed to 100%. Pushback was then started at 15:21pm and the flight time was one hour as announced.

    Beautiful report! I love that German airports have observation decks for planespotting. I really wish we had those here in the U.S.

    Seems like a good experience for a short domestic flight. I guess with Eurowings having taken over so many LH domestic routes, only these main trunk routes remain operated by LH and offering a better experience.

    Thanks for sharing!
