Happy Easter! Hello from the Lufthansa International First Class Terminal and Lounge just outside the main terminal at the Frankfurt Airport. Had to actually exit the main terminal to walk down here for access, as it's supposed to have a few more amenities (well, it's bigger, but otherwise just looks like the lounge I used inside the terminal last year). . As I have over 7 hours until my next flight there's plenty of time. Thought about going to Mainz where the high is forecast to be 48F but my duffle bag with all the electronics and cables just weighs too much and it wouldn't be a comfortable visit (with about $1,500 of computers and cameras I don't dare even think about leaving it in a locker at the train station). Too risky for me. Flight time from SFO on the A380 was 9 hours 50 mins with arrival at 10:20am Sunday. We boarded directly to the upper deck (recall this is a double-decker plane). Had a short delay on our 2:45pm departure while they removed two passengers bags who did not arrive for the flight and were airborne at 3:30pm. Smooth flight the entire way. I was in the first row on the upper deck. There are some stairs about 15 feet across from me but they are barricaded once we're in the air so very little foot traffic in the cabin. The bathrooms are on either side of the stairway. There's a sofa and behind what looks like a closet door is a urinal. I had an ottoman for storage in front of me under the TV screen, and behind that my own personal locker with hangars to store clothing and bags. It had a combination lock but I didn't see much of a need to set it as my bag just contained cables and a day's worth of clothing with the netbook and tablet in the ottoman storage. I stayed awake the first 4 hours and watched an episode of The Borgias and one movie (Iron Lady with Meryl Streep). In the bright sun the video display, which is above the ottoman in front of my seat, was hard to see, but once the cabin lights dimmed and the window shades were darkened it was perfect. My seat was turned into a bed for the next 4 hours but don't think I slept more than an hour. Usually on these overnight flights there's always someone that wants to keep their overhead light on, but the 4 other passengers in my 8 seat cabin all tried to sleep after dinner so didn't have to deal with that. The cabin was a little warm and I'm not used to going to bed at 7:30 CA time. I had some French champagne (D de Devaux Brut, Champagne Veuve Devaux from a champagne house founded in 1846), along with macadamia nuts when boarding, and during the flight a glass of Argentine Malbec and another champagne during my main course (Poached Lobster Tail and Claw served with Saffron Reduction, simmered mushrooms and Butternut Squash) which the flight attendant recommended to accompany it. The other options were Tenderloin of Beef, Pasta and Fingerling Potato, and Chicken Breast. Happy with my selection and certainly something I would not have at home. I selected the Caviar, Grilled Shrimp and Slices of Sirloin appetizers and passed on Beef Ravioli stuffed with creamy goat cheese. The flight attendant recommended vodka with the caviar (small glasses on the serving table right next to the caviar), so had some of that too. Not being a caviar person I took it plain (they offered eggs and two other options with it). I selected some brie and gruyere cheese for dessert along with a milk chocolate panna cotta (a scoop of vanilla ice cream and chocolate pudding on the side). After dessert, some Baileys and chocolates. At breakfast time I didn't have much of an appetite and had some yogurt with fruit and scrambled eggs with bacon. I passed on bowls of fruit, salmon, roast beef, chicken, pastrami, a basket of breakfast breads and various cheeses. I had reached my limit. Two flight attendants working this cabin could not have been nicer and came back a couple times to make sure I didn't want any other beverages or breakfast items. Hard to say “no” but I just couldn't eat or drink anything more and probably had too much as it is. I did take a look through some of the TV programming available and they had Hart to Hart, which hasn't aired in 20 years I think, as well as Knight Rider, Glee and Mad Men. They had some older movies like Flashdance (1983) and All the Presidents Men (1976) mixed with new movies including J Edgar, so something for everyone. Just had a shower and I'm 3.5 hours from departure now. Time for lunch. Upload speed here was really slow until the afternoon bank of travelers bailed out, leaving just a few of us behind.
