Hi all,

Last December, I was going to visit Marseilles with one of my friends. I met him at Nice and we went by train to Marseilles. My flight was originally supposed to leave at 7:00 pm on Dec. 25th but since there was a very heavy rain storm in Nice. They had closed the airport. I had no idea that they would close an entire airport due to rain.

Because of this our flight got postponed to the 26th at 7:00 am and they gave us a hotel near the airport to stay for the night, which was good.

Below are pictures from Frankfurt airport. I really like this airport. It's very clean and is huge and great for taking pictures.

I hope you enjoy the pictures :)

Pier A- Used for flights mostly within Europe- Upstairs is Pier Z that is used for International flights and is an exact replica of Pier A

Pier A- A huge corridor with gates to the left

They have made small sections with lounge seating for all passengers, which is a very nice idea and the seats were very comfortable

Then they told us that the airport in Nice was closed due to heavy rain and our flight had postponed by 12 hours. Therefore we all went to the hotel

When we go to the plane, they had not yet finished fueling the aircraft, so we had to wait in the bus for 15 minutes till this person finished his work and we can go up the stairs to the plane

Finally we were able to board

Lufthansa is a great and very professional airline. It was not their fault that flight got delayed due to bad weather and they offered all passengers a hotel near the airport. Frankfurt airport is great in every aspect, the only downside is that if you want to explore the airport, you need to pass through different passport controls. Nice airport terminal 1 is a bit old and very simple. It needs to be renovated and expanded.

    Thanks for this FR. The spotting in FRA is amazing with so many aircrafts. Not hard to see who rules at this airport !
    I personally find FRA a boring airport in terms of architecture and do not find it very convenient.
    The yogurt is nice but a pastry with it would have been even better. The crew seems to have been nice which is key to have a good feeling about a flight.
    Waiting in the bus for 15 minutes ? that's not very comfortable and LH should have anticipated this and have you wait at the gate, not so professional !
    I love Marseilles (even if I also hate some things about it !) and your nice pictures captures the essence of this sunny city which has changed a lot in a very positive way recently.

      Thanks Skyteamchc. I'm glad you liked the pictures.Yes, the crew were very nice and friendly considering it was a early morning flight and everyone was very sleepy. I really liked Marseilles too. It had a good vibe and some of its sights were very nice :)

    Thanks for sharing this spectacular report.

    The south of France is indeed an enchanting corner and your pictures are evidence of that.

    Hi, thanks for this report with wonderful pictures!
    As Nice is my hometown, i really enjoyed the pictures of the approach. It was the ILS one, flying over Lerins islands and Antibes town.
    Actually the airport was closed on 25th December due to the combination of west wind/low visibility. In fact there is no ILS approach in this case... it happens several times a year.

    Great, you had a 32A with sharklets :)

    The trip from Nice to Marseille by train is beautiful too, especially when you're seated on the left side!

      Thanks very much Michael and I’m glad you liked the pictures. Also thanks for letting me know whey the airport was closed as this was a big question for me :)
      It’s great that Nice is your hometown, actually I have just wrote another FR that I had posted couple of days ago with aerial pictures above Nice and the city itself. I hope you like it. Link is below:

    Great report once again! Nice planespotting in FRA--had the weather been nicer, you could have gone to the observation deck for some great runway views. The approach into Nice is one of the most scenic--it really is beautiful and your awesome pics bring that out. Great bonus pics.

      Thanks so much Kevin, actually a week later I went back to FRA and was able to visit the terrace but the weather is rainy most days in FRA in winter time but I still managed to get some pictures. I just posted a trip report from it. I have one or 2 more flight reports to write in order to get caught up :)
