We got to the airport at around 12:30PM for our 3:55PM departure. As I said in the last installment, we took the Sheraton bus to the airport, which drops off near where the trains let out.

From there it was maybe a 10 minute walk to Lufthansa’s check-in.

I do love the main check-in area in Munich for the “traditional” looking departures board.

The first class and Star Gold check-in area is located at the far end of the terminal, partitioned off from the rest of the terminal.

Check-in was quick, and there’s a dedicated premium security line right by first class check-in, so we were through in seconds. From there it was a quick walk to the Lufthansa First Class Lounge.

Since our flight wasn’t leaving from a remote stand we wouldn’t be driven to the plane, so were told to keep an eye on the departure time.

Unlike on the outbound, the lounge was fairly empty this time around, which meant the service was a bit more attentive.

Since we had breakfast early we decided to go to the restaurant area for lunch.

I wasn’t very hungry so just had some salmon, tomato and mozzarella, and savored one last pretzel and Fanta.

Meanwhile my friend ordered some sausages with sauerkraut off the menu.

For the next hour or so I grabbed a cubicle to get some work done, and at around 3PM we headed to our departure gate, H8.

Not surprisingly the gate was packed, and at around 3:25PM first and business class boarding began.

Comments

  1. Nice food display, but the food itself does not seem to be refrigerated or kept on ice as would be seem to be common sense. Maybe that’s how my wife got really sick after this lounge once and was suffering through the whole flight home.

  2. This is my favorite lounge since it means I don’t have to deal with FRA, and arriving pax can be driven straight to the lounge, if from secure destinations.

    I found service by the wait staff consistently better than the FCT, LH’s staff I found less helpful than FCT. Since A+ opened in FRA and the walk is shorter I do enjoy the quiet of the FCT compared to MUC FCL’s busy times.

  3. Luc – food-borne illness doesn’t tend to manifest THAT quickly. That’s why it’s so hard to nail down the offending meal that got you sick. How many hours after the fact are we talking here?

  4. Just being a wiseass 😉
    In the picture is not the “Munich sausages with sweet mustard” but the “Fried sausages from nuremburg on sauerkraut”. (and shouldn’t Nuremburg be written with a capital “N”? – I’m not a native english speaker so only 99% sure).

    😉

    And here’s the Link to the Munich Sausages (to the wikipedia page in Bavarian!) http://bar.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weißwuascht

  5. I arrive via LH (flying F) from the US. Will I be able to use the lounge upon arrival?
    Thanks
