Aspire Lounge

Sadly, the Star Alliance Lounge was closed so I was directed to Aspire Lounge next door. It was okay but it was mostly crowded.

The whole meal was served on a tray consisting of salad, smoked salmon and dessert.

For my drinks, I had a glass of apple juice and chamomile tea later on.

Before landing, we were offered some chocolates which was actually very good 😋

Landing in Frankfurt Airport

We landed at 12:31pm, which meant we made up some time despite of the delay in Amsterdam.


I have flown a few times in Lufthansa business class short haul and I´ve always loved it. Food was great, seats are economy class seats with the middle seat being blocked (just like most European airlines), and crew were friendly. They used to give menu cards pre-pandemic but now it´s gone. Overall, a nice flight.
