Gothenburg-Munich on Lufthansa in business class: good without more

This business class flight from Gothenburg to Munich on Lufthansa is in line with what you’d expect, with no big missteps or reasons to be ecstatic. At least it confirms the consistency of the German airline’s service.

These are the last flights of this trip to Malaysia with much the same feeling as at the end of my recent trip to Australia. After having had some very pleasant experiences that are a bit out of the ordinary, in this case, airlines that you don’t take every day, getting back from Gothenburg to Paris is like the daily business: airports, airline, cabin…. only very familiar things and no surprises to be expected. So I’m impatient to get back, but not as much as when I came back from Australia, where I went on without a break, whereas this one-night stop in Gothenburg allowed me to see friends and enjoy a good restaurant. A smooth landing…

For the record the routing of this trip.

Check-in and ground experience

I arrive at the airport by Uber mid-morning. If it stops raining, Landvetter is plunged into an unpleasant fog.

Not many people at the check-in counter but, unluckily for me, a family for whom the operation will take an incredible amount of time.

Once the formalities have been completed and my luggage has been checked in, I head for the security checks. As always in Gothenburg there will be no one around and the staff will be extremely friendly.

After the obligatory crossing of the duty free I head for the lounge.

The SAS lounge

I will quickly go over this lounge that I have presented to you several times.

The setting is as pleasant as ever…

The catering is still scarce but I’ll make a light salad.

Through the window I saw the incoming flight arrive… did you say fog?

I will leave the lounge a few minutes before the theoretical boarding time.

Boarding

The boarding will start on time... so it will have taken 25 minutes to disembark everyone and clean the cabin. Well done!

It will start with families with children and then everyone else in the biggest mess and without any respect for priorities.

The cabin

It’s the good old NEK seat that we’ve seen over and over again and that’s good because in the chaos of the boarding it would have been difficult to take decent photos.

The middle seat will of course be blocked in business class.

There will be 5 rows of business class, fully occupied.

Boarding will take less than 20 minutes and we will leave on time.

The flight and the service

As we line up on the runway we can hardly see the terminal, although it is quite close!

A bonus gift is the take-off at accelerated speed. Fortunately, it is possible to fly without visibility.

Very quickly the service begins and the meal trays are brought to us without a trolley, directly from the galley.

The flight attendant prides herself on serving me in French.

I will have a beer with this meal.

The salad has no taste, the terrine is rather bland, but the meat will be saved by its spicy sauce which will give it some taste.

The dessert, consisting of a cream and a stuffed biscuit, was fresh and very good.

For lack of a seatmate I made myself comfortable. I have no memory of the series I was watching at the time but obviously this character will not reappear in the next episode.

IMG_3791

I’m enjoying the blue sky and the sun I can see outside because I haven’t seen it for 28 hours…

IMG_3786

It is soon time to start the descent.

The staff

Very pleasant and efficient, doing all the service in French for me.

Descent and arrival in Munich

If this time I had avoided the snow in Gothenburg something tells me that it will not be the same in Munich. It doesn’t matter…unless we disembark by bus.

IMG_3792

We land at a snow-covered airport with completely clear runways.

IMG_3795

We will be parked in the gate so there is no need to deal with the weather outside…

Bottom line

A comfortable flight, correct, excellent crew, somewhat disappointing meal compared to Lufthansa standards.
