Hi,

Security was a brief this morning as I used one of the two new trial stations in Munich Terminal 2: With those lanes you do not have to take out any liquids or technical devices from your hand luggage as they use special new scanning machines. This is perfect and really takes out a lot of stress and chaos.

Afterwards I had breakfast in the Lufthansa Business Class lounge in G gates area.

Boarding started on time via bus on a remote position.

The flight this morning was operated by a nice looking Lufthansa City Line CRJ 900.

A friendly female Purser welcomed me on board and I took my comfortable window seat which provided very fine seat pitch and good comfort. The seat next to me also stayed empty - Jackpot :)
During boarding the Purser also offered a small muesli bar snack from a basket at the aircraft entrance.
The cabin looked very modern and well maintained - especially compared to the old and worn CRJ 900 of Adria Airways that I had travelled on only two days ago.
By this comparison I one more time even more realized how good Lufthansa takes care of their aircraft and that they go through frequent maintenance inside and outside.

A flight time of only 35 minutes was announced and a quick manual safety demonstartion followed in German & English.

We powered into the clouds and cabin crew sprang into action minutes after take off to start the inflight service.
I was amazed that Lufthansa offers a full drink service from a trolley on such a short hop.
I had some tea and a glass of water which I enjoyed together with the muesli bar that I took from the basket during boarding.

We landed some minutes ahead in Prague and parked next to CRJ 900 brother from France.

====BONUS====Train ride between Prague & Bratislava with EC 275===========================================

For those of you that are also interested in train rides I include below a very brief review of my train trip that I took on EC 275 from Prague to Bratislava on 11th April 2019.
The train was EC 275 'Metropolitan' operated by Czech Railways (CD) and I travelled in 1st Class for a very affordable ticket price of only 30 EUr for a 4 hour trip.

I had access to the CD Lounge at Prague Main station that offered some basic free drinks and snacks.

The train had a comfortable old fashioned interior.

A bottle of free water was offered to every 1st Class passenger.

I ordered a nice full breakfast for 5,80 EUR that was delivered by a friendly hostess directly from the dining car to my seat.

All in all a very nice train ride.
