An other report in english, on LH737 between NGO and FRA, with LH in A343.
routing : PTP-ORY - TX543 - 6 Juillet - A359 (–) MRS-FRA - LH1087 - 18 Juillet - A320.S. (–) FRA-HND- LH716 - 18 Juillet - B747-8i (–) NGO-FRA- LH737- 20 Août - A343 (here) FRA - LYS - LH1078 - 20 Août - A320.S. (French) ORY-PTP - TX542 - 29 Août - A359 (French).
The departure was planned at 9:45 am, we woke up early. Our airbnb was located 300feets off Nagoya train station. We go there on foot to take Meitetsu Line to Nagoya Airport called 'Chubu centrair Japan Airport'.
I take the 6:30am train, the trip lasts 30 minutes. It's fast, but it's a pity that it is necessary to take a real train (suburbs train) while city subway stop a few km ago of airport.
Suburbs train is aerial. :
The airport was built on the sea (like KIX, Osaka Kansai), arrival is beautiful.
Station on the airport is composed by only 2 tracks, but it's sufficient.
We take a bridge to go to landside part of airport.
Let's go to LH counters. there is a crowd, but it's good, we check-in faster than expected.
direction the SkyDeck, a good concept which is an observation platform on the roof of the airport !! . .
There are 2 terminals : International and national, we see both from skydeck.
B777 Cathay Pacific
A343 Philipinnes Airlines
A321 Vietnam airlines.
A330 Finnair just landing.
L'A343 Lufthansa, our plane to 12:30 flight to FRA.
With A350, I think A340 is one of my favorite plane, i love his look !!!
Korean leaves for Seoul ICN
United will go to Guam in a few hours.
after that, it's time to go to gate (203). We have to go down in a little room, visibly used for PAXbus boarding.
Of course, boarding is done in bus, with an old bus.
Welcome was smiling and warm. I go to my seat (43A), window side.
I really like A340's configuration in 2-4-2, it's more friendly.
IFE was very recent, and looks like the IFE of Air Caraïbes's a350. the choice (music, movies, games etc…) was great.
Pitch was great,I can almost lengthen my legs. Seat was very confortable.
Push-back with 15m of delay. Take-off 10m later, to the Pacific. We turn on our right as we continue to climb.
Fly over Airport and Nagoya City
Distribution of the menu and hot oshibori.
West direction, to the Korea. Our itinary of the day will be west direction until Beijing, after west-north/west, fly-over Oulan-Bator. After, vertical of Moscow, Berlin, and landing to FRA.
Lunch was served at noon (JST). On the 2 choices, only Japanese menu were avalaible. (no pic).
Sushis were goods; but i don't liked meat and veggies (veggies were viscous). Dessert were very good; it was "1000 crèpes dessert"(1000pancakes dessert) with whipping cream.
Then, go to toilet which were clean.
2hours 20 before landing, just after Moscow.
Second dish was served 1h before landing, i choose pasta. It was very, very good ! fruits were welcome, I was dry! Bread wasn't good.
After Warsaw, we enter on German airspace.
We start our descent above Berlin.
Just above the cloud. we were in final in parallel with an a320 LH.
Violent landing because of strong wind in Francfort today. i like this.
Landing on German land on runway 07L/25R
Go to our gate. almost only LH in term of traffic.
Unboarding very fast. Passing of European formalities at FRA of course. After, let's go to A/Z gates to our next flight to Lyon, France.
Qatar's A350 an others
New terminal reserved for big planes (A380/747/A340…).
Thanks to read my report, hope it was relevant. Louri.
Nagoya - NGO
Frankfurt - FRA
Nagoya : beautiful airport, recent and efficacious. Good idea to build the SkyDeck!
LH : Very good flight with LH despite his lenght (+12h30). eBooking was very effective, in contrary of some companies. Catering was very correct. Crew was pleasant. Aircraft was clean.
Frankfurt: european hub which do his job. Airport is close to saturation. Controls were severe (normal after Barcelona attacks). it takes at least 1h30 of layover to be quiet. If it's possible, Munich J-S international (second LH's hub) can be an other very good solution.
