Lounge

The Lufthansa Business Lounge we used was the one located near Gate B21 since our flight leaves from Gate 28. It was basically the same lounge we used for our flight to Montreal last April. The only difference is the location as this lounge is on the other side of the terminal.

Boarding

My boarding pass issued by the Thai Airways agent in Frankfurt, showing the new boarding time of 4pm. The flight was actually two hours delayed due to late arrival of the aircraft in Frankfurt.

After waiting for two hours, it was almost time for boarding.

Conclusion

 

This is my third time aboard Thai Airways Super Jumbo and I have to admit I love everything about it. The food was excellent, the flight attendants were very nice and the seat that turns into a bed which is just perfect for having a good sleep. The delay of 2 hours was probably not a good sign but as it turned out, it was the same aircraft that would take us to Hongkong so we didn't actually miss our connecting flight. Thanks Thai Airways for another great experience!
