Gosh, I’m happy I speak German, if for no other reason than the really cool airplane related documentaries that they seem to make in Germany. When I was in Mainz, Germany, this past week, I turned on the TV for a moment, only to flip to a channel showing a documentary about Lufthansa’s first A380 flight to Johannesburg. Unfortunately I only caught the tail end of it, though it was awesome. A while back I posted this documentary, following the first commercial Lufthansa A340-600 flight.
Well, I just found a couple more awesome videos on YouTube. First, there’s a documentary following two new hire Lufthansa flight attendants as they go through training and work their first commercial flight, which happens to be from Frankfurt to Hong Kong. It documents everything, including the entire onboard experience and what the crew did during their layover. Part one can be found here:
Then there’s another pretty cool documentary, following a Lufthansa short haul crew on a three day trip, documenting everything from their pre-flight preparations to the flights themselves to their layovers. Part one can be found here:
My condolences to those that don’t speak German, you’re really missing out.
