My nice SQ BP (for a LH flight) in hand I headed to the transfer

I had great views on the gates

I had to clear immigration(to enter Schengen area) but I was expecting to be able to reach the A gates staying in sterile area
Of course it's FRA so I had to walk through endless corridors

But even worse I had to exit landside and go through all the checks :(
I finally arrived at the Senator Lounge

Some business passengers seemed to have the feeling that it was their own aircraft :(

I sat on a NEK seat

Lufthansa Senator Lounge A50 (Schengen) - A


Frankfurt - FRA


Vienna - VIE



FRA was, as usual, a mess : I spent too much time for the transfer

The lounge was decent

A quite good flight with LH.

The collation was good (unfortunately no hot dish) but minus one point for the false champagne
