Back again for more English translations, always a pleasure to write in a foreing language, so please bear with me with typos or spelling errors :) 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.
We were parked at the very last gate at Terminal B, the walk will be something :)
And my flight was due to depart from A68 at the very far end of Terminal A :)
I then headed to the police controls:
Fast and efficient. But to go to A, you have to … go landside first! What a non sense.
I was happy to see that the express line was open, not always the case:
And then you have to go through the underground tunnel back to A:
At least the walkway was working, last time it wasn't the case:
And going to the lounge:
sen lounge fra
I easily found a spot to relax a bit:
No thank you for the food:
But a little something sweet, why not :)
And water to go with:
30 minutes before departure, I decided to make my way to the gate.
never ending transit in fra, part ii
Little did I know that gate 68 is very, but very far from the lounge.
And to add a few meters to the walk, the gate was changed last minute to A69 :) Here's my plane:
The walk was really long and I arrived at the gate 15 minutes before departure with a nice "Last Call" on the screens :)
The last passengers are boarding:
The A319 door:
Again, a super warm welcome from the crew and the famous LH NEK :)
Nothing to see this side:
Time to leave!
A fairly long taxi as we took off from RWY 18:
Auf wiedersehen FRA!
The meal is served:
This time there wasn't any menu but I mainly know all LH dishes by heart now. It was the betroot terrine with trout. Good but again, something I had at least 3 times already. The service ended with a fresh apple:
And descending towards CDG:
Again a long taxi:
The starwars ship:
E70 HOP! and 737 KLM:
We taxied next to this A320 that was the one I was supposed to arrive with:
F-GZUH AF A220:
Making my way back to the terminal:
And going to wait for my luggage:
And a shame, since our bags arrived 40 minutes after landing!
I will overnight again at the Sheraton, since my return flight to home is only the day after:
View from my room:
Lufthansa Senator Lounge A50 (Schengen) - A
Frankfurt - FRA
Paris - CDG
A flight that did its job.
The rerouting was perfectly handled and my luggage made it. The only thinkg is the catering, always the same.
FRA was ok, but those long walks and the need to go back landside for the security control is a pain.
CDG was great, if you don't take into account the wait for the bags.
Thanks for reading, and as for last time, I'll publish everything in once in order for you to get the series straight ahead.

Thanks for sharing Esteban, I with I could ride the A340 again, but LHs current service standards woo me away.
I hope you had a good time in Colombia!
