Hi everybody,

I arrived in front of Terminal 2 at a grey and rather cold winter morning. I quickly headed to the Lufthansa First Class Check in area being a Star Alliance Gold customer. The Terminal was very quiet this morning and so I was airside very quick.

I passed border control and made my way to the Lufthansa Senator Lounge in H gates Level.

I was greeted friendly and the Lounge was almost empty as well. This Lounge is nice and very airy offering plenty of different seating sections.

The self service buffet offered a nice breakfast without providing a huge choice. Definitely here Lufthansa is not back to pre covid standards.

Still I had a tasty breakfast.

On my way to the gate I enjoyed some views on the apron.

Boarding had already started and soon I was on the bus taking us to the Croatia Airlines Dash 8 turboprop.

Some views of the nice small airplane waiting for us on the apron.

My seat was reached soon and was comfortable with enough leg room and in good general  shape.

Some views outside before snow fall started which is why we collected a delay of ca. 40 minutes waiting for deicing.

The cabin crew passed with a trolley distributing free small bottles of water and some Croatian cracker snack which was very welcome. Later on you could additionally buy other things from BOB menu which I declined.
