Lufthansa 1363
Katowice (KTW) – Frankfurt (FRA)
Boeing 737-500
27 August 2014

After leaving the lounge, I proceeded to the departure gate, 14, where it sort of looked like this:

Boarding in Europe

Boarding in Europe

You have got to love European boarding 🙂 Just like in Kraków, there are no aprons and instead you are transported to the aircraft by bus. They were also doing the old style boarding where they rip your boarding pass and give you the little piece left.

The flight was operated by one of Lufthansa’s Boeing 737-500 aircraft with just three rows in Business Class.

I might have been among the last people to board mainly because everyone tried to get on at the same time and that involved lots of pushing and yelling. I decided to step back, admire the bird, and then board.

As with most flights, I was able to get my ‘European Business Class row’ all to myself since there were just three people in Business Class.

We departed on-time from Runway 27. Currently they are building a new runway at KTW and the existing one is supposed to be turned into a taxiway once the construction is complete.

The weather was actually beautiful above the clouds.

About ten minutes after take-off, the seatbelt sign was turned off and immediately the FAs started their service. The breakfast was European cold cuts which consisted of cheese, ham and vegetables along with bread, grapes and some pudding with raisins.

The closer we got to Frankfurt, the better the sky looked. The sun was slowly rising and the view was just downright beautiful. This is why I fly!

After the meal service was complete, chocolate was handed out and the FAs went around one more time to see if anyone needed drinks.

Shortly after that we began our initial descent into Deutschland.

We actually didn’t land in Cologne for once! This time the flight landed on runway 07R and we were able to pull in quickly into the remote stand where a bus was waiting.
