Another routing with my new friend Mother Lufthansa :)

I wanted to go to Sicily in order to visit Catania and climb the Etna mountain. I had planned to leave a Friday and be back on Monday, leaving a day for Catania and one day for the Etna.

Sicily is also known as "Isola del Sole", the island of the Sun. But for this specific week-end it won't be the case. Weather forecast is really clear: thunderstorms around the region and rain chances at 100% and the tour company where I booked my Etna tour calls me to inform me they will cancel it since the visibility will be close to 0.

In those conditions, I don't see myself spending 72H in a room waiting for a ray of sunshine between two thunderstorms. LH offers full flexibility on their tickets (but no refunds) and so I moved my return flight to Sunday morning.

The routing looked like this:


  • LH Cityline - Affaires - CRJ 900 - EuroAirport > Francfort You are here
  • LH - Affaires - A321 - Francfort > Catania Coming soon
  • LH - Affaires - A321neo - Catania > Munich Coming soon
  • LH Cityline - Affaires - CRJ 900 - Munich > Francfort Coming soon

My father dropped me off on time for my flight and for a short stay at the lounge.

To sum it up it was a nice and enjoyable flight with a nice meal, a nice crew. They weren't in a hurry despite the short duration of the flight.

EAP and FRA did their job and so did the lounge.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the next part to come soon.
