TRIP from SAINT PETERSBURG


Hello dear Flight Reporters and readers!
Welcome to a series of flights that took me from London to St Petersburg.
Of course there were some direct flights with BA, but it was too expensive and not convenient for us as the flight was leaving in the morning. 


Miles & More earned: 290 



For memory here is the routing

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 A320 on lufthansa:

We arrived about 4 hours later with the bomb scare story and were rescheduled for the next day flight..
So after a short night at the hotel, we were up and heading towards the airport with a LH pre-booked cab.


Inside the half circular shaped ter;inal.

Once passed security, we ended up on the A concurse, which is usually used for domestic departures I believe.

To make things worse our flight was delayed of almost 2 hours (so even more added up to the total delay - my boss wasn't really impressed) so we went upstairs to do some plane spotting.

Our gate, with the Lufthansa / Germanwings counter.
One thing I find funny about the german airport is the outstanding effort to fit every colour but grey grey grey grey grey…

boarding happened with a strict respect of priorities and so we boarded almost last!
These e-gates were a first for me.

And here is the oldest A321 I have ever flown into : a 24 years old (now 31!) aircraft!


I guess unlickuly for me, the seat wasn't as old…
