Welcome to the second part of the Lufthansa A350 journey back to Munich.

1. MUC->HKG LH730: Here!
2. HKG->MUC LH731: You are here!

I took a taxi and arrived at the airport at. The checkin counters were completely deserted and I quickly checked my luggage. Then I went to Starbucks to have a drink before I proceeded to gate.

The security check and the immigration were also empty and the processes were extremely smooth. I had already completed the online check-in the night before and had my boarding pass saved in my phone. My flight will be departed from gate 214 which was located in the midfield concourse so I needed to take the automatic people mover to get to my gate.

My seat 38K. For this return flight, I chose to seat on the right side but there was no different since the flight departed at night and arrived before sunrise. As we can observe from the cabin that the yellow color of Lufthansa corporate color was almost removed. Blue becomes the leading color.

After entering the China airspace we kept heading north. I checked the route for the past few days and realized that this time we will pass through Mongolia to enter Russia, instead of flying through the north west part of China.
