Our vacations were nearly over and we have now to go to Kuala Lumpur, our last destination before we head back home.

For this flight we chose Lufthansa. I bought our oneway tickets and LH was the cheapest at the time I bought them.

We took a taxi from the Novotel to the airport and we were dropped off in front of the terminal. The Lufthansa check-in counters were packed with people, there was a big group of customers queueing. We joined the queue and after 15 minutes, a ground agent pulled us out of the queue and took us to the First Class counter to check-in. Why ? I don't know… maybe because we were the only westerners…

We got our seats and the bags were sent off to our aircraft ! It was now time to go through immigration and customs formalities.

Then the crew starts to give out sandwiches followed by the drink cart.

The sandwiches were OK, nothing to write home about…

When flying on a Lufthansa A340-600 it is compulsory to visit the toilets downstairs !
