There was almost no wait to enter the lounge that morning:
Back into the lounge that I begin to know pretty well:
The food on offer:
I just had a latte and water:
Spotting is almost impossible:
There is also a hot dish chicken with paprika and knödels :
My gate is at the far end of the terminal, there's a bit to walk :)
My plane was in the Star Alliance livery:
As I get to my gate a delayed boarding announcement is made, 20 minutes. I opted to stay at the gate since the walk back to the lounge isn't worth it.
I'll then wait for the flight.
Boarding started with passengers needing assistances and families with babies, then followed by group 1:
Instant porte, in french "dans le texte" :)
After a warm welcome, a cabin again fitted with the NEK seat:
The tablet between the seats:
The pitch is ok:
Until an A320 shows up:
As the flight wasn't full, I moved to 3A since I had a seat mate in 2D:
The safety card:
With a good half an hour delay, the jetway is retracted:
There wasn't too many planes before us, we got to our hold point pretty quickly:
Bis nächste Woche FRA!
A small airport close to FRA:
There is WiFi on board but no power plugs :(
The service starts pretty quickly with a typical german dish: sausage salad:
The tray without lids:
I was expecting a hot dish on that flight since it was over 2H30 minutes but we are not at meal times, maybe that explains it. But I was also told that some "leasure" flights do not have hot meals also.
The salad was really good, though, small but the taste was great.
The dessert was equally good and the bread was served warm.
The flight was pretty smooth:
Then coffee was served:
As we were overflying Venise:
And leaving Italy around Naples:
More inflight views:
And then comes Sicily:
A few thunderstorm clouds and and the flight began to be pretty bumpy:
We flew close to the Etna but nowhere to be seen :(
Ground on sight:
ATR Guardia Costeria:
Welcome to Catania:
The crew bid us farewell but was not that "warm" during the flight.
Exiting through the jetway:
The italian PLF should be checked here, to complete the whole informations they ask takes a while …
But as you may notice, nobody controls anything.
Nobody at that checkpoint also:
Luggage delivery room:
And heading to the exit, still no controls:
I had reserved a private transfer to my hotel, was a good thing since the rain started just when I entered the car.
The flight did its job, I was happy with the meal, even if it wasn't a hot meal. It was tasty and out of the ordinary.
The seats are NEK but being alone on my row helped with the comfort.
FRA and the lounge were great.
CTA was easy to naviguate but absolutely no controls with regards to the Covid. The airport wasn't that clean also.
Stay tuned for the next part to come soon!
The NEK seats are really looking worn and tattered! They can't be changed out soon enough!
Hopefully they will roll out the new Geven seats soon on the CEO fleets. Better comfort and USB ports!
The meal does look very decent for a 2h flight, even if it is cold.
Wow, great views of Venice.
Thanks for sharing 😊
