Hello everyone and welcome to my 9th trip report,

After finishing the itinerary for my 4 week vacation to the USA/Canada this summer, (July 21st-August 17th) flying DL/KL and WS I decided to book 2 other trips as I still had 2 weekends off from work before my vacation. Firstly to LHR via MUC, which this report will be on, and over 2 weeks I’m off to ZRH for a weekend spotting trip flying SWISS in C.
As mentioned before this report will cover AMS-LHR via MUC both ways with LH. While looking for a hotel I chose the Renaissance hotel as it offers great views of the airport (if you get/request a room facing the airport) and it was close to LHR as I needed to get back there early in the morning the next day.
AMS-MUC-AMS will be operated by an E195 (LH Regional and IQ) with MUC-LHR-MUC being operated with an A321 and A319. As I now have FTL status with LH this report will also cover some lounges I visited. Here’s the map thanks to www.gcmap.com:

AMS-MUC
LH2305 // 23F
E195 LH Regional // D-AEBL
13:35 – 14:55


After a long week at work I finally got the opportunity to sleep in, until my alarm clock went off at 10:00. After a quick shower I packed my bag and was ready to go. As my dad also had the day off he decided to bring me to AMS and get a bite to eat with me before I headed airside. After a 15 minute drive we arrived at AMS and parked the car in one of the garages. A 10 minute walk later and I was at Schiphol plaza. We walked all the way upstairs to the 3rd floor where the observation deck and a food court is located. After a nice little bite to eat we headed back downstairs to the check-in level where I bid my father farewell.
As usual I had checked in online the night before and just needed to print my BPs, so off to check-in area 8 I went. After swapping my LH FTL card my 2 BPs came out of the machine. Off to security it was. Of course I chose the slowest line and was through in 15 min. As there was still another hour before boarding time (12:50), I decided to head to the lounge. LH uses lounge 26 here at AMS, which is the Menzies lounge. The Menzies lounge is located on the 2nd floor next to the airport park:

After exchanging my BP and FTL card I got granted access and wished a pleasant stay. The lounge had different snacks, drinks and soup on offer. So I sat and relaxed while reading one of the Airliner World magazines:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01771.jpg

At 13:00 (10 min past boarding time, 20 min before departure time) I headed towards the gate: B15. While walking to the gate and looking outside I saw my aircraft just taxiing in which meant there was going to be a bit of a delay. Once arriving at the busy gate area I found an empty seat and listened to some music before boarding started. At 13:15, 5 minutes before SDT, boarding started. As usual I was one of the last to board, but before doing that I snapped a picture of the aircraft. D-AEBL, a pretty new E195 delivered on 01/03/2012, will be doing the honors on this leg:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01773.jpg

Once boarding the aircraft I was greeted by 2 female FAs and proceeded to my seat: 23F. Flight was pretty full at 90% with the seat next to me unfortunately occupied. The view from my seat, the LH A319 was headed to FRA:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01774.jpg

Boarding was completed very fast. The pilot came onto the PA with the usual announcements and saying that we had to wait another 10 min before getting pushback clearance due to some bad weather around AMS. Announced flying time is 1h5min and within 10 min we finally pushed back at 13:35, 15 minutes behind SDT, the LH A319 was still awaiting pushback clearance:

While the safety demonstration was being done, we taxied the short way to the “Kaagbaan” also known as runway 24:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01777.jpg

Always nice to see an AN124 at AMS:

This KL 777 took off in front of us, we we’re next:

Cityjet taxiing to its gate:

We lined up and started take-off roll immediately, next up was an HV 737 wearing a special “Sunweb” scheme (not that it looks that special):

The LH A319 was still awaiting pushback:

Flight crew consisted of 1 female purser and 2 female FAs, once the seatbelt sign got switched off they sprung into action. Snack on this leg was a tasty slice of bread with cheese, together with that I got an OJ and coffee all served with a smile:

Soon enough we started our descent:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01806.jpg

Every time I fly into MUC I seem to be landing on runways 26L or 26R, today was no exception. That means flying past the airport and making a nice and sharp “U”-turn:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01810.jpg

And into final approach for runway 26R:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01811.jpg

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01813.jpg

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01816.jpg

And touchdown!:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01817.jpg

Taxiing to our remote stand:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01818.jpg

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01820.jpg

During taxi we stopped for a moment, so a bunch of people thought we were at our parking position and started standing up grabbing their belongings. It took many announcements from the FAs before everybody was seated again. The person next to me started running to the front, seemed like he had a tight connection, but unfortunately for him the aircraft started taxiing again and he fell forward in the aisle, and grabbed an empty seat further up in the plane. Some people will just never learn:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01823.jpg

We arrived at our parking position and the front left door was opened quickly. While disembarking I bid the crew farewell and headed to the almost full bus, just love these kind of shots:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01825.jpg

Once arriving at the terminal I decided to head landside first. There wasn’t much going on landside, and the weather wasn’t the best, so I decided to head back airside to one of the LH Business Lounges. Used the Business Class security line and was through within a couple of minutes. There were 2 choices for me now: Use the Business Lounge at the schengen side or the non-schengen side. I decided to go for the non-schengen as that is closer to my gate and I could use the other lounge tomorrow on my way back to AMS. So up the stairs to the H gates I went. There was no line at passport control, so I was through within a minute. I then proceeded to the Business Lounge:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01833.jpg

Handed over my BP + FTL card and was granted access:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01830.jpg

As boarding time for my flight to LHR wasn’t until 17:55 I sat, relaxed, enjoyed the free WIFI and regularly visited the bar for some food and drinks:

This Thai coconut soup was absolutely delicious:

09/06/2012
MUC-LHR
LH2480 // 35A
A321 Lufthansa // D-AIRE
18:25 – 19:30


At 18:00 I grabbed my belongings and headed towards the gate: H40. Once arriving at the gate boarding was already well underway. I joined the line, scanned my BP, showed my passport and headed towards the bridge. No greetings from the crew once entering the plane and I headed to my seat: 35A. Another good load on this sector at 95% with the aisle seat occupied and the seat next to me empty luckily enough:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01834.jpg

This LH A330 came taxiing in next to us:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01835.jpg

Once boarding was completed, the pilot came onto the PA with the usual announcements and with an announced flying time of 1h25min we pushed back right on time and headed towards runway 26R:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01837.jpg

Starting take-off roll:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01845.jpg

When you depart from 26R and sit on the left side you always get a good view of MUC:

Flight crew consisted of 1 male purser, 2 female and 1 male FA. Once the seatbelt sign turned off they started the service. An interesting snack on this sector, this Thai Nudelsalat was delicious and together with that I got a Sprite and coffee all served with a smile:

Soon enough we started our descent towards LHR:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01863.jpg

A bunch of windmills on the North Sea:

London Southend airport:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01867.jpg

The female FO came onto the PA saying that we had to hold for about 10 minutes before being cleared to land. So now the “famous” circling over London began with a lot of other aircraft also circling all around us, like this BA 777:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01869.jpg

Or this KLM Embraer:

And this BA A320:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01873.jpg

While circling you also get some great views of London:

2 SA busses getting prepared for another long flight back to South Africa:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01914.jpg

We parked next to this SN RJ100, which was sitting at gate 21B:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01916.jpg

While disembarking I bid the crew farewell and walked over to passport control. Once arriving it wasn’t all too busy and I was through in 10 min. Off to the baggage claim it was now, where I used an ATM to get some pounds (as I had forgot to exchange my money in AMS or MUC). Went through customs and was now at the arrivals hall, where I went over to the taxi stand and took a short taxi ride to my hotel, The Renaissance.
Paid the taxi driver and headed towards the reception desk. It was my turn right away, and I was welcomed to the hotel. Upon checking me in I asked if it would be able to get a room facing the airport. The lady replied that it would be difficult, but once looking at the computer she said that I had already got such a room assigned. With a smile on my face I received my room card and headed to the elevators. Went up to the second floor and walked to my room, no. 2030:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01939.jpg

This was the view from my window:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01919.jpg

So the rest of the evening I did some spotting from my window. Not many pictures came out all that well but here is a small selection that did:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01944.jpg

After a nice spotting session, with some new regs, I headed back downstairs to have a bite to eat at the restaurant. After that I went over to the business centre where I checked in online for my flight the next day and did some other stuff on the internet. After reserving a taxi for early the next morning at the concierge, it was now time to head back to my room and get some sleep as my flight will be leaving at 06:45. After 4 hours of sleep my alarm clock went off at 04:45. This was the view outside:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01946.jpg

I slowly got out of bed and took a nice shower which woke me up a bit. Still feeling sleepy I gathered my belongings and went downstairs to check out and grab my taxi. The taxi took me to T1, where I paid and headed inside the terminal. Went over to the special LH/OS Business/First class check in area, where I swapped my FTL card and my 2 BPs came out of the machine. The busy check in area is UAs, as people were checking in for the 2 early flights to IAD or ORD:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01947.jpg

I went straight to passport control and security of which I was through within 15 min. No lounge for me here, so I sat, listened to some music and waited in the “holding pen”:

At 06:10 I headed over to gate 21. My flight will be departing from 21A, while a SN flight to BRU will be departing from 21B just 5 minutes after us. My aircraft for this leg, stupid me forgot to check the reg. here and at MUC:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01951.jpg

As always I was one of the last to board and was greeted by 2 female FAs when entering the aircraft. Headed over to my seat: 19A. Another pretty full flight at about 90% with the 2 seats next to me occupied. SN A319 in special *A scheme next to us for the flight to BRU:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC01952.jpg

Boarding was completed shortly after I took my seat. The pilot came onto the PA with the usual announcements and with an announced flying time of 1h25min, we pushed back 5 minutes late at 06:50 and headed to runway 09R:

Flight crew consisted of 1 female Purser and 2 female FAs. When the seatbelt sign got switched off they began the service. Looking outside we we’re just crossing the Belgian coast:

Once at our parking position, this OU prop parked next to us:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02019.jpg

The front left door was opened and I bid the crew farewell. As it was raining I hurried to the bus so no picture of the plane and completely forgot to check the reg. from the bus, oh well will have to look it up later. The bus took us to the terminal, where passport control was. No line when I arrived and I was through within a minute. Headed airside for a bit and went straight back thru security using the Business Class lane. Security was a breeze and I was through within 5 minutes. Headed over to the Business Lounge, exchanged my BP and FTL card and was once again granted access:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02021.jpg

I sat, relaxed and enjoyed the free WIFI for about an hour:

11:15 – 12:25


At 10:45 (boarding time) I left the lounge and headed to my gate: G17. Once arriving, boarding had already commenced so I scanned my BP and headed downstairs to the waiting bus. After 5 min the doors of the almost empty bus closed meaning that it will be a light load:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02022.jpg

I boarded via the back steps and was greeted by a female FA. Proceeded to my seat: 19F. As already mentioned it was a light load at 30% with the seat next to me of course empty:
http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02023.jpg

No welcome from the cockpit (they only came on before approach to AMS) and with an announced flying time of 1h10min we started taxiing to once again runway 26R:

Flight crew consisted of 1 female Purser and 2 female FAs. Not a very good crew, not looking that happy, not many smiles. They served the snacks and after that disappeared until the seatbelt sign got switched on before final approach again to clear all the tables and get the cabin ready. This was the snack, the salad was tasty and together with that I got a Sprite and coffee:

http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u441/bjb020/DSC02056.jpg

That’s a place where I used to spot a lot, when you were still aloud to park your car and stand along the fences (not in front of the emergency gate) and enjoy the planes taxiing by. The building used to not be there either. Too bad it’s not allowed anymore even though this man doesn’t seem to care much about that:

Overall I had another enjoyable weekend away. LH service was good as usual except for the last flight, where the FAs didn’t seem to be having a good day. The lounges were nice and quite enjoyable to stay at and wait for your flight.
The Renaissance hotel is a great hotel to stay at and do some spotting, next time I will definitely stay much longer and enjoy all the LHR traffic.

This will conclude the trip report. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this report, it is much appreciated. I hope you guys enjoyed it as I, like always, enjoyed making it.
Comments/Questions/Suggestions are very welcome and appreciated.

Cheers,

Hoi Brendan, nice report!

Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
As I now have FTL status with LH this report will also cover some lounges I visited. Here’s the map thanks

Congrats on reaching the FTL status, suppose all those LH flights came to pay off, although didn't expect you to reach the status so fast. I'm guessing many of the LH flights of the year have not been reported?

Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
After exchanging my BP and FTL card I got granted access and wished a pleasant stay

Interesting, so they asked for you to present the card at the reception? Thought only LH Lounges did that. Place looks pretty nice though, were there any good views of the action?

Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
An interesting snack on this sector, this Thai Nudelsalat was delicious and together with that I got a Sprite and coffee all served with a smile:

Ah now that looks really delicious, seems like the catering just seems to be getting better and better! One would even call that a light lunch!

Quoting adamspotter (Reply 1):
This was the view from my window:

Nice of them to let you have a room facing the runway for free! Some airport hotels are cruel enough to charge for such rooms.

Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
No lounge for me here, so I sat, listened to some music and waited in the “holding pen”:

That's a shame they won't let you use the BMI Lounge anymore. So no chance to use the *A Lounge either?

Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
Headed over to the Business Lounge, exchanged my BP and FTL card and was once again granted access:

Is that the G28 Lounge? Must say that the Business part looks much nicer and brighter than the dark bunker of Senator Lounge they have downstairs.

Hi Brendan

nice couple of days' flying. LH certainly up to scratch!
A couple of points about the hotel in London, the Renaissance offers a "spotters' package" which guarantees a runway view room, together with "lounge" access and HotelHoppa bus to the terminals. On the other hand, the regular busses are free around LHR and the stop outside the Renaissance is I think the first after leaving the central bus station, so just as quick as a private taxi  

Thanks

Hey Brendan ,

Very enjoyable read and photos. I was impressed with LHs offerings in Y . I love their new lounges too and not bad food offerings in them these days .

Always nice to stay at the Renaissance . Decor a bit old but the runway views make up for it .  

What made you get a taxi ? You know there is a free bus  

Anyway thanks for the report some people slag off LH but I have always had good flights with them in Y and J both EU and Longhaul.  

Regards

Yes, I read about that "spotters package" but decided not to take it as I would only be spotting a couple of hours, next time when I stay a couple of days I will definetely take it, it looked interesting! I also forgot to check which bus I needed, wasn't too sure, so decided to take the taxi the easier way

Haai Brendan,

Good report and congrats on reaching FTL status. It’s always a nice thing to have lounge access and enjoy all the complimentary stuff on offer. Some good solid flights by the Luftwaffe there, the Thai-Nudelsalat looks very yummy   . Good catering job LH!
Nice pics in and around LHR, the approach and departure from there is gorgeous in good weather conditions, the nice city views are almost endless.

Doesn't look bad... have had a strange variety of snacks on LH.

Some good solid flights by the Luftwaffe there, the Thai-Nudelsalat looks very yummy . Good catering job LH!

Nice pics in and around LHR, the approach and departure from there is gorgeous in good weather conditions, the nice city views are almost endless.

Indeed, cant get enough of those views!

How cool to see OST and BRU from up above. There are certainly not many days on which t
that is possible!

very true

It seems quite tight, are you tall or is it as cramped as it looks?

I am almost 2 meters tall, so it wasn't that cramped

Thank you Zkpilot!

The absolute worst was this crappy bread roll that was filled with butter.... I'm not talking a little butter either I'm talking about a stick of butter about 10cm long and about 2cm in diameter!

Yes I have had that one a few times, not a good one at all!

Hi Brendan,

nice report, good mixture of types.

Snack on this leg was a tasty slice of bread with cheese
Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
An interesting snack on this sector, this Thai Nudelsalat was delicious
Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
This was the snack, the wrap was warm and quite tasty
Quoting adamspotter (Thread starter):
This was the snack, the salad was tasty

Four flight, four different decent snacks - LH's new catering concept never ceases to surprise. However, I fear we'll see some cuts in the near future.

Upon checking me in I asked if it would be able to get a room facing the airport. The lady replied that it would be difficult, but once looking at the computer she said that I had already got such a room assigned. With a smile on my face I received my room card and headed to the elevators. Went up to the second floor and walked to my room, no. 2030:

Very nice. I really need to stay there once for registration spotting.

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!
