So after our inbound from Bogotá, we found ourselves in FRA's A pier, with over 1 hour to spare. For me the main activity was spotting, to see all those LH widebodies was really impressive.
The plane that brought us from Colombia, D-AIHK
Other planes in the A+ pier
After walking the whole of the A pier, we headed to our assigned gate in the A+pier to have some rest. It provided interesting comparative views of the B744 and the A380
After a while Boarding was announced, I found it somewhat disorganized as it was free boarding. At first I suspected it was because of a light load and the fact that we were being bussed anyways, but after having flown more this year I've noticed that boarding in Europe is not as organized as in America, where there tends to be a more strict boarding order.
Anyway, we were bussed to a remote position nearby RWY 18…which allowed for great views.

Huge LH hangars
A row of one of my favorite planes…sadly flying cargo
under an A380, I was really thrilled as I hadn't seen much of the whalejet until this trip
South African A346
And finally our plane to Geneva: D-AECC
Boarding was swiftly completed and as expected, load was light. The Embraers seem to have a version of its own of the NEK, which I found weird as usually Embraers tend to have the same seats regardless of the airline, in my opinion LH's seats are the best for Embraers, I don't really like the standard Embraer seat.

And the view to the wing from my window:
We made a short taxi to RWY 16, crossing by a nice Greek jet from an airline we certainly can't spot in my side of the world:
B777s were also spotted in AeroLogic livery
And then was takeoff, which permitted some nice views of FRA:
Around 20 minutes later service begun, consisting of a sandwich and drinks, I chose my favourite soda in the world: European Sprite, and was invited to have seconds.
The rest of the flight was rather uneventful, particularly because there was nothing but clouds outside…
We begun landing and passed by GVA continuing into France and then doing an 180° turn to align with RWY 05
In GVA some of the usual suspects were seen:
Swiss, present with the jumbolino (I was really excited as I would ride in one of those at the end of the trip)
And Embraers hailing from Poland and the Netherlands:
Its a shame GVA has its windows covered with dots, hate them:
Frankfurt - FRA
Geneva - GVA
I like LH's shorthaul product, compared to AF's between ZRH-CDG (FR soon) at least it has better catering and the seat comfort is better (because of LH's seats.
I thought connecting at FRA would have taken me more time thus I spent more time than usual in transit, I could have certainly made it hassle free to an earlier flight but well, first timer's mistake.
