trip to saint petersburg


Miles & More earned: 340 



There was no App at the time - at least not that I remember so I checked in the old fashion way on LH website and printed my BP in the office (too late I no longer work there you can't tell my boss XD).

This was the sweet time when you could select your seats for free before checkin and we did so to sit next to each other.
For information, here is the seat map of an 200 seats an the A321 on lufthansa:

I left you from my previous flight at the main hall connecting the piers A B and C.

We had plenty of time for a well deserved beer - just to embrace the local culture.
And a pastry that is also a weapon depending if you are an USA president!

The FIDS were displaying that our departure gate was at the B pier.

Boarding started with the priorities - I remember wondering to myself how are these people doing?

Most of the journey was very cloudy..

And the service started… It feels like it was last century where there was no Buy on Board, but a comprehensive meal. Actually it was just 7 years ago…!

There was no IFE but a lot of Papers under in the seat in front of us.

Including the magazine. Not the thickest I have ever read but did the job.

Going through passport control was quite an experience… the lady wasn't speaking a word of English so I had to guess what she wanted..

Conclusion

FRA:
A massive airport, luckily our plane was just at B piers. Not the most beautiful airport - grey is colour they have in 50 shades ;-)

LH: I don't remember the pitch, the crew was super friendly looking back at the pictures.
The big thing, that seemed normal at the time, was the full meal...

LED:
Impressive new terminal, terrible security.
