This new series will bring me to Colombia, I found a super deal for 1'200€ from CDG with LH via FRA. The flights to and from CDG will be with AF HOP! including overnighting at the Sheraton CDG (overpriced but the best hotel in terms of location) and the flights to Bogotá with the mighty A340-300.
As said the hotel is overpriced and needs a major renovation, but some rooms offer beautiful views over the airport:
The flight was super early and I skipped the breakfast to have it in the lounge instead. Heading to 2B for check-in:
No wait at check in nor at the controls, here I am airside:
Inside the terminal:
My soon to be boarding gate:
The welcome was nice, the only issue was that the agent, after taking care of me, was taking care of himself by giving personnal calls and was loud enough that his conversations could be overheard in the lounge. Not that premium :(
The food offer:
It is more than adequate for a light breakfast:
I decided to stay on the light side :)
Since the flight was operated with a CRJ, all hand luggage are tagged as delivery at aircraft. My carry on luggage was chosen specially to be even smaller than the standard one to fit in the CRJ racks. And I never had any issues … at least until that day :)
I always accept the tag but specify I'll check with the crew if ok.
We had to wait for the preparations to be finished:
And here we go:
I was first to board and as I stood on the first step the most unfriendliest agent ever seen shooted at me "Your carry on goes to the hold!!" I turned back, smiled and said "Goodmoring at first sir! Please let me check with the crew and if they don't agree I will gladly bring it down"
He shoots even louder and said that he is the boss here and this was an "order" not a "choice". I stay calm and head up to the plane to meet the purser that waits at the entrance. The guy gets litteraly crazy and shoots he'll call the police, I have to follow his orders and I am breaking the law.
I had an eye exchange with the purser and she looked at my "mini" carry on. I asked her what she thinks about it while the guy continues to scream and begins to make its way up to me.
It was then too mutch for the purser that stops him and screams back that the boss here is the crew and that ultimately decide what is accepted on board or not. She more or less tells him to shut up and that speaking like this to a business and senator guest isn't LH policy. He then gives up.
At my seat, at least :)
On time push back:
And off we go for this short flight:
Nice views over the 2F:
"Leipzig" menu today:
Quite strange menu for breakfast but at least the menu wasn't correct and I can gladly say I was much more pleased with what was on the tray than what was written on the menu :)
Everything was good, I took a coffee to go with:
And starting our descent:
Welcome to Curry Wurst land :)
FRA = Pax Bus for regional aircrafts:
We had to give way to this 787:
The beautiful A340-600, LH reactivated some of them, at that time there was only one active and was FRA based, now they are all in MUC:
Dropped off at a Schengen gate:
If one puts apart the ugly ground agent in CDG, all the rest was uneventful, a flight as all should be, nice seat, nice crew, nice catering. Both airport were effecient and easy to breeze through. The lounge did it's job :)
Thanks for reading, and as for last time, I'll publish everything in once in order for you to get the series straight ahead.
