Lufthansa Business Lounge

A short visit to the Lufthansa Business Lounge.

Aircraft, Airbus A380-800

Boarding, Gate B28

My boarding pass issued by the Thai Airways agent in Frankfurt, showing the new boarding time of 4pm. The flight was actually two hours delayed due to late arrival of the aircraft in Frankfurt.

After waiting for two hours, it was almost time for boarding.

Business Class Cabin

The business class cabin is located on the upper deck, with a total of 60 seats.

There is free wifi provided by OnAir but unfortunately, something was wrong with the signal that day.

Seat 15E

This is my third time aboard Thai Airways Super Jumbo and I have to admit I love everything about it. The food was excellent, the flight attendants were very nice and the seat that turns into a bed which is just perfect for having a good sleep. The delay of 2 hours was probably not a good sign but as it turned out, it was the same aircraft that would take us to Hong Kong so we didn't actually miss our connecting flight. Thanks Thai Airways for another great experience 😉
