My nice SQ BP (for a LH flight) in hand I headed to the transfer
photo 201311SQ22_0740

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

It was very large and pleasant with different areas
The entrance with a gorgeous picture

I asked for a shower and I received a beeper
It was saturday morning but I had to wait one hour and half :(

Spotting is not easy

Then it was shower time


I had to hurry up because it was almost boarding time

Pretty christmas decorations


I arrived at the gate

My aircraft is an Airbus A321 D-AISO, first flight was on the 18/08/2008

Boarding was delayed so I spotted few LH brothers


Boarding was about to begin

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

I sat on a NEK seat

Conclusion

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
