Munich-Stockholm in business class on Lufthansa: a good and uneventful flight

Just arrived from Paris I have to hurry because I have only 20 minutes before the boarding of my connection to Stockholm, starting point of a much longer trip this time to Australia.

Trip routing:

The list of posts about this trip is available at the bottom of the page.

Connection

The flight from Paris disembarked by bus and I hope that I won’t be late for this short connection, especially since I’m not walking very well and slowly at this time due to a health problem. Of course I won’t have time to go to the lounge.

Munich, however, is a smooth and pleasant airport for connections.

So I go through the duty free area starting with a very local store.

There are really more unpleasant airports for a connection.

I arrive at the gate at the exact time of boarding to learn that we will finally board with a little delay.

After about ten minutes the boarding begins.

Boarding

The business and star alliance gold passes board first, it is very well organized, fluid and priorities are perfectly respected.

It is thus without particular anecdote that I enter the cabin.

Cabin and settling in on board.

Is it still necessary to present the Lufthansa cabin and its NEK seats?

The look is premium, but they are nearing the end of their life and are gradually being replaced by more comfortable and beautiful seats.

There will be 4 business rows and unlike my first flight of the day where I was alone, the cabin will be full.

The boarding drags because some passengers and luggage are missing. I take the opportunity to buy online my Arlanda Express ticket to reach the center of Stockholm once arrived.

The weather is no better than in Paris.

We finish the boarding with 10 minutes of delay and we will push back 10 minutes later.

The flight and the service

We join quickly the runway and I take advantage of it to share you the video of the takeoff.

Once passed the cloudy layer we see again with pleasure a beautiful blue sky.

The service starts 30 minutes later. The trays come out of the galley and are brought to us without a trolley, it’s a nicer service.

IMG_0264

A little negligence: they could have at least removed the lids before the service, like on the flight from Paris, it looks more professional.

It’s nicer this way.

IMG_0265

And as always with Lufthansa the famous square tray that does not fit on a rectangular shelf!

Hot breads and croissants and a well-warmed croissant that doesn’t look like chewing gum.

The cold cuts and cheese will be good.

The cottage cheese will be light and I will add the contents of the jam jar to improve it.

The rest of the flight was uneventful with some turbulence when we reached the Swedish coast.

Landing and arrival

As we start the descent I realize that ironically the weather is much clearer in Sweden than in Paris or Frankfurt this morning.

Uneventful landing in Arlanda.

At the time of the disembarkation I notice something already observed at the time of my last passage in Stockholm: the passengers of the front half of the plane disembark by the footbridge and those of the back by a staircase by going by the outside. Faster but less fun when it rains.

I say goodbye to my bird of the day.

IMG_0273

I walk through the terminal and its stores which were not all reopened at the time of my last visit because of the COVID. It’s nice to see terminals that live “as before”.

IMG_0276

I won’t wait long before the conveyor belt goes into action and dumps the first suitcases. It’s a change compared to Roissy.

IMG_0278

On the other hand, their conveyor belt is quite strange: all in length but with inaccessible luggage on half of its length! Strange.

My suitcase will arrive in the first ones and I go to the station to take the Arlanda Express.

IMG_0283

Arlanda is very far from Stockholm but this very comfortable train that runs at 200 km/h takes us to the city center in 20 minutes. The whole thing makes a great impression and this car even comes with stools and shelves to work on!

IMG_0284

Every time I take the Arlanda Express I think about how the RER B service to Roissy is unworthy both of Roissy and of the city that receives the most visitors in the world. Waiting for the CDG Express in 2027?

Bottom line

An uneventful flight.
