Katowice (KTW) – Frankfurt (FRA)
03 January 2013
The three weeks in Poland passed by so fast and it was time to once again leave my family behind. I had an amazing Christmas with all of my closest relatives and friends and I couldn’t be more happy with how everything went. I’m very fortunate to have such a loving family and I look forward to each visit when I plan it.
There are 3 Lufthansa flights to Frankfurt daily from Katowice (and vice versa), the earliest one leaves at 06:30 and it is the only flight that I could take in order to make my intercontinental flight.
Lufthansa’s Check-in is located in Terminal B, all the way at the end of all of the check-in desks. We made it to the airport at 04:00 and check-in was still closed so we waited a bit and went to a cafe which opened when we arrived.
The airport is constantly being renovated and this time they were actually building a new Business Lounge so I was unable to enjoy comfortable pre-flight time.
Boarding began thirty minutes ahead of the scheduled departure time and as usual everyone ran towards the gate pushing and yelling meanwhile I decided to step back and watch this madness. I was among the last people to board the bus that would take us to the remote stand where the CRJ700 was waiting. I should note this is the first time that I have ever flown on a Star Alliance livery painted airplane.
This time Business Class was only three rows and there were two other people in front of the curtain along with me.
Once we reached 11 thousand metres, the FA working Business Class distributed napkins to everyone and asked if we would like to have breakfast.
The breakfast consisted of mainly cold cuts (what else in Europe?!)
- Lettuce, Ham, and a single (1) tomato
- Cheese, Figs, Walnuts
- Kiwi Fruit Salad
Along with that we could choose what kind of bread we wanted.
As usual the drinks were on the tray next to me, as everything couldn’t possibly fit onto one tray.
After breakfast, I decided to sleep the rest of the way to Frankfurt and when I woke up the purser asked me if I could fill out a survey and told me I could keep the pen afterwards (which I was planning on doing anyway).
We were shortly on the ground and it was time to board the transatlantic Lufthansa flight to Seattle. I once again had a pleasant Intra-European Business Class experience, the crew was super nice and the breakfast was more or less edible.
