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 ride to Munich. The brand-new A350-900XWB, D-AIXE with the name of "Essen". Next to us at gate 212, parked the Lufthansa B747-8i to Frankfurt.
At 23:05pm, there was an announcement that the boarding will begin very soon, so I queued up in from of the gate. Boarding eventually commenced at 22:23pm.
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.

Welcome screen on the monitor, reminding me that my seat is 38K.
I checked out the aircraft camera and watched people boarded the aircraft. There are a total of three outside cameras installed in this aircraft.
At 22:44pm, boarding was completed and the seat next to me was unoccupied. Pushback was then started at two minutes later and with 15 minutes taxi to the runway, we took off at 0:01am. The cabin light was turned off a few minutes before take-off. 20 minutes after take-off, I watched the first movie of the flight, transformer.
At 0:51am, snacked were served together with the menu. I opted for a coke.
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.
Dinner was then distributed at 1:53am. I took the "beef"option and had an orange juice for the drink. (Black Bean Beef with steamed Rice and Chinese Vegetables)
Had a tea after the meal.
At 3:04am, I finished the transformer movie and began to feel sleepy. I took a nap for about 2 hours.
I woke up at 5:15am, and at this time we had already entered the Russia airspace.
At 5:31am, I visited the lavatory. I realized that there were also some blue LED lighting inside the lavatory.
Self-service bar at the back gallery. Drinks with a lot of choices available and at last I got myself an orange juice.
Backed to my seat I started watching the second movie, Dunkirk. About one hour later, I fell asleep again
At 9:23am, I woke up again and cabin light was turned on. According to the flight map, there was only 2 and half hours left to Munich. We were flying over Bryansk and about to left Russia into Belarus.

After finishing the second movie, I continued with the Lego movie.
At 10:23am, I decided to stretch my legs and visit the lavatory again.

The same lavatory.
Breakfast was served at 10:45am, one and half hours prior to landing. I took the "Egg" option. (Scrambled Egg with Spring Onion and Mornay Sauce, roasted Potato, Spinach and Chicken Chipolata)
Had a coffee after the meal
At 11:30am the announcement informing that we had commenced the descend and seatbelt sign was turned on 10 minutes later. Eventually we landed at 5:03am on RWY08L. With a short taxi, our plane parked at gate 216.
Thanks for reading!
