On a cold and grey dark morning I reached Munich Airport Terminal 2 for my flight to Ireland.
Security through priority lane and border control were fast and soon I was in front of the Lufthansa Senator Lounge in Non Schengen H gates level.
The Lounge was still very empty and provides a very nice calm and airy atmosphere.
There also is a working zone with day light.
The self service buffet offered warm and cold breakfast options.
I only had some eggs and tea.
It was still grey outside when I headed to my gate.
A Lufthansa Cityline Airbus 319 in Star Alliance colors would operate this morning service to Dublin.
Boarding was quick as the flight was far from full. A very friendly crew welcomed me aboard offering disinfectant towels from a basket at the entrance.
Business class consisted of 3 rows and only one other passenger was seated there apart from me.
First I took my original seat 2F .
However once boarding was completed I moved to 2A for providing a bigger distance frontage other Business class passenger and more quietness for both of us.
Small water bottles were offered as a welcome drink. Usually only Lufthansa Cityline does this before take off while Lufthansa mainline does never offer pre departure drinks on flights within Europe.
A nice Air Baltic A220 had arrived from Riga.
Flight time of 2 hous 5 minutes was announced and we pushed back on time.
Soon we headed out into thick layers of clouds.
Always great to break through the clouds into sunny skies on morning flights.
We soon reached our cruising altitude and headed westwards over cloudy Central Europe.
The curtains to Economy Class were soon closed and the small cabin felt very private.
The extremely friendly female purser soon approached me distributing a small paper table cloth which was very nice and typically is only done on Cityline and not mainline Lufthansa flights within Europe.
A cold and nice looking breakfast tray was served next.
Warm croissants and breads were offered from a basket as well.
A small menu was placed on the tray describing the very tasty breakfast that had a Dusseldorf region motto.
I was asked for drink choices and ordered a nice cup of tea and freshly squeezed orange juice typically served on all Lufthansa morning flights.
Views outside were great and I really enjoyed the breakfast and relaxed atmosphere. Drink refills or more bread was also offered.
Clearing away my tray I was again asked for more drink wishes and ordered a cup of coffee and tomato juice for the rest of the flight.
Between the continent and Great Britain clouds disappeared and views were great this sunny morning. We crossed the UK and soon were near Ireland.
Shortly before descending a nice and very juicy apple was served along a Lufthansa farewell chocolate.
Great views of the Irish coastline marked the begin of descent into Dublin.
We banked over they Irish Sea crossing some ships.
On finals some nice coastline views in the morning sun were a great end of this nice flight.
We touched down ahead of schedule and passed some other nice aircraft on the way to our gate.

Finally docking next to a LOT Embraer
Thanks for reading,
A perfect medium haul flight with a very relaxed cabin, very friendly crew and a tasty breakfast. Lufthansa Cityline most times provides a better service compared to mainline Lufthansa flights as Cityline usually offers a welcome drink, table clothes and more friendly and cheerful cabin crews in most cases.
