Hi,

As my transfer time at Madrid was very short I had no time to visit any lounge.
Boarding onto our Boeing 737-800 for this flight to Munich was almost finished when I reached the gate.

This Boeing had the new Sky Interior as well. However somehow it looked older than the 737 I had 10 days before on my flight to Madrid. The seats were also different and older. However those seats actually were more comfortabel and also featured a tray on the middle seats and movable armrests that slided to the middle seats to provide wider seats in Business Class
So maybe this was an older Boeing refitted with parts of the new Sky Interior?

Pillows & blankets have been preplaced on the seats and once boarding was completed newspapers, maganzines & pre departure drinks were offered.

This plane also featured the entertainment streaming on your personal device which is a very nice feature as it also provides airshow maps.

Once cruising altitude was reached the curtain divider to Economy Class was closed and strict usage of front lavatory for Business Class lavatory enforced by the crew again.

Some minutes the very friendly crew started service with refreshment towels.
