After spending 18 days in Egypt , it was time to go back home...

You can see the Toronto-Cairo trip here :

http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...ums/trip_reports/read.main/129527/


And the domestic flight we took in Egypt between Cairo and Mersa Matrouh on Egyptair Express here :

http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...ums/trip_reports/read.main/129665/

I originally didn't plan to write a return trip , as the Toronto-Cairo report was quite sufficient with lots of pics and information about Lufthansa service on board .
So on the 1st leg of this trip :CAI-FRA , i only took 3 pics for the food on board and an aerial pic of Frankfurt Airport .

The only reason that made me decide to write a return report was when i was informed that we would be bussed to the Aircraft at FRA , so i prepared my camera and took some nice pics of the Aiport and our Aircraft .

An aerial pic of Frankfurt Airport


We landed on time , and we originally had a 4 hour lay-over in Frankfurt . When i checked the board , i noticed that our flight to YYZ wasn't assigned a gate yet .

After about an hour , our flight got a gate . Then , it was announced that it was delayed by about 4 and a half hours . No reasons were given for the delay at the gate .

We were given some snacks and drinks at the gate


Egyptair B738 arriving from Cairo


After spending a total of about 9 hours at Frankfurt Airport , our flight was ready for boarding . I was very excited to learn that we would be bussed to the Aircraft which happened to be at the far other end of the Airport . We got a nice tour of FRA .

Boarding from the back door


The captain of our flight was actually waiting on the ground for our bus to arrive , he then boarded the bus and talked to us over the PA to apologize personally for the delay and explained the reason for the delay . It turned out that the ground staff at FRA had a strike that affected all of the long-haul flights , he actually told us that we were lucky that we would be flying to Toronto because a lot of flights have been cancelled .
It turned out that he boarded all of the 4 busses that carried the passengers to our flight to say the same thing .

cool trip report

Quoting StarAlliance38 (Reply 1):
Cabin view , washrooms are downstairs

Never seen that before, do you or some else know why they put the washrooms downstairs? It seems to me that there isn't much space benefit from this because of the room for the stairs and maybe loss of cargo room downstairs?

Nice trip report, indeed and some great pictures.

What runway did you land, I'm trying to figure out what part of Toronto that pictures of, I recognise it, but at the same time can't out a name to it.

There were 2 washrooms upstairs at the back of the plabe , 1 is really large , the other is smaller . Then there were 5 tiny washrooms downstairs , a water fountain and a staff room.

It was the runway at the far right of the picture . We were coming from the East , so the pic may be somwhere over the Richmond Hill area .

Looks like Rowntree Mills Park, up by Finch & Islington.

Great photos! How could you stand 9 hours in an airport - I love flying and all, but after 4 hours I start to go crazy.

Ah, so it looks like you landed 05 then - making it quite possible that it was indeed Rowntree Mills Park, it's somewhere in that area atleast.

Think this is a great job by the captain even though I thought this should have been communicated much earlier at the gate to calm everyone down.

Great pictures from your "sightseeing" trip in FRA. Can't wait to land fly in to FRA 2 weeks from today on CI 61 from TPE and I hope one of my domestic flights with LH from/to FRA will give me a chance for a busride on the tarmac.

Cheers from Brisbane,

Peter

Nice report and pictures, especially liked your FRA ground shots, always nice to get up close and board from the ground.

Thought the cpt diid a good job in explaining the delay, nice touch.

Regards

Mark

Wonder if LH is the only one that have the washrooms downstairs??


Thank you for sharing

I was starting to go crazy too , especially that FRA airport has very limited available seats to rest outside of the gate area .

It was nice of him , that's what i thought too .

I always prefer being bussed to being air-bridged .
