After leaving our jumbo we entered gate area for flights out of Schengen area. We had some 2,5 hours to get to A gates, it was exactly A68 scheduled for us
Some birds flying around
Moving around provided us with some nice views of LH heavies
Gate few minutes before boarding started
It was obvious we were about to be bussed to our A320 as at our gate this B748 was presented After 10 days I overheard Czech language in behind of me when a guy told her wife that it seems we are going to have a big aircraft for today´s flight :-)
ok, time to board the last flight of this trip
We went down the stairs where the bus waited for us. Took the opportunity to picture the jumbo again
Reaching our ride to PRG
D-AIQA it is, 23 years old Airbus A320.
Boarding through the front door
Cockpit door opened offered some nice sneak view into the cockpit. There were three pilots, one seemed young and probably being prepared for future career with first officer describing him some procedures. After reaching our seats the aisle was taken by younger woman around 25 maybe. She let us in for our 9A and 9B seats Pretty standard Lufthansa / Austrian seat, good legroom, but boring interior.. Seemed like this plane was well refurbished as it really didn´t feel that old
737-300 next to us. Shame we didn´t fly this one, I would prefer it to A320 - like you can fly A320 everyday..
Load for this afternoon flight was maybe around 80%. No TVs here, only the in-flight magazine
View through my really dirty window made picturing a difficult one this time
On our way to the runway
There is nothing special to be said about take off. I enjoyed the views of planes everywhere around and downtown Frankfurt visible
At this point I started thinking it´s all going to be over. It was funny when I realized that usually this kind of flight is something I look forward to very much and I always feel very special when flying. This time it´s just a hop that is almost not noticable compared to the previous flight. But I still tried to relax onboard and enjoy my stay as much as possible
A sandwich and drinks were distributed. I just put the sandwich into bag as I was not hungry at all
747 passing by
The flight was really a short one and in no time we dived into clouds meaning we were already approaching Prague. Usually it is runway 24 at PRG and this time it was a case again. Few minutes later we made two right turns to line up with the runway
Prague suburbs visible. Stylish weather to welcome us home after this trip
And now landing back where it all started almost 2 weeks ago
On the opposite side there is an observaton deck from where my brother and father followed our landing closely.
It wasn´t usual landing here at PRG. We touched down late and we runned on runway pretty fast to slow down almost at the end of the runway
There was Danish Air Transport MD-83 in CocaCola livery parked in the back - never saw that aircraft before
After leaving aircraft it was standard and quick procedure at PRG. We left the arrival hall and waited for part of my family to arrive and take us back to Brno. At this point I started to be quite tired and was happy to finally reach home and have some rest. In first days after arrival I struggled with jetlag very much - much more than I expected.
For now it is all. We kicked off 2014 travelling in a stylish way, but we are certainly not over. See you next time everyone. Thank you for attention and any comments are most welcomed again!
Frankfurt - FRA
Prague - PRG
Just an ordinary European short-haul flight. It felt almost the same as flying lowcost, but what would you like to get on such a short flight. The seat was comfortable and there was some catering although not looking the best way. Lack of IFE was disappointing. In short words Lufthansa made the job done on this flight but nothing more.
Frankfurt airport is convinient and I quite like it. On our time there we moved at only one pier so cannot rate it too much. Immigration was quick although something made personel checking my passport much looonger than girlfriend´s.
