Hello!

This is my very first trip report! I decided to join airliners.net after years of following this site.
I am from Finland and aviation has been my passion since I was a little kid. I don't travel very often, but I would like to change that in the coming months and years. I am not so good at giving speeches, but I think you will get to know me better in the future.

Lets move to the trip report.

Introduction

First of all this is my first trip report, but its also first trip for me that includes a stopover and first time flying with Lufthansa. Oh, and this is my first time to check-in with check-in machine. This trip was a summer holiday.

The route:



HEL-MUC
LH2467
Airbus A320 (D-AIPL)
06:43-08:01

My ride to Munich.

It has been raining.

Safety instructions.

Meal of the first flight and it was actually quite good.

Descending to Munich.

Landing.

Bombardier at MUC, not sure about the airline.

More than 3 hours to spend at MUC, which went actually very fast. The airport was huge (in my opinion) and the free coffee service was awesome!

MUC-BCN
LH1812
Airbus A321
11:40-13:26

Lufthansa Airbus A330 next to us at the gate.

Salad and some kind of sesame seed bread.

Nice (and I mean the city of Nice) airport.

Vueling departing, there are many of these at BCN.

Finally in Barcelona and just couple hours later I found myself next to the best known attraction in Barcelona.

Rambla de Mar

http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg500/finnishway1/DSCF0441.jpg

What is he doing?

http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg500/finnishway1/DSCF0448.jpg

Yes, we are in Spain.

http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg500/finnishway1/DSCF0463.jpg

The beach where I went, which was a big mistake (I didn't have sunscreen).  http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg500/finnishway1/DSCF0475.jpg

Next day I went to the Aquarium, which was very expensive in my opinion (18€).

http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg500/finnishway1/DSCF0482.jpg

The underwater tunnel was awesome!

http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg500/finnishway1/DSCF0497.jpg

These are so cute.

Time to head home and the routing is the same.

BCN-MUC
LH1813
Airbus A321 (D-AISO)
14:36-16:16

This A321 will be carrying me to MUC.

The delicious rhubarb pie.

Last leg of this journey.

MUC-HEL
LH2466
Airbus A320 (D-AIPR)

http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg500/finnishway1/DSCF0611.jpg

Quite good cheese sandwich, though the bread is not the most common one in sandwich, as far as I know.

http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg500/finnishway1/DSCF0615.jpg

Good to be back at HEL.

http://i1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg500/finnishway1/DSCF0616.jpg

This is good picture to end the journey.

Conclusions

I had waited for years to fly with Lufthansa and now it became true, not just one time, but four times.
Their service was great and everyhting worked well, so I would defenitely fly with them again.

Looking foward to make more trip reports in the near future, hopefully still in this year.

Thanks for reading and I would like to read your comments.

Hey finnishway. Welcome to the airliners community and to the Finnish community within it. Great effort for a first TR. It seems like you had a good time on the flights but also at your destination.

Name the airport (I failed to find the correct answer).

It's INN in Austria. A very interesting airport due to the steep mountains that surround it. How nice that you got to see if from above.

Welcome and thank for the TR! Kiitos   The report of sunny Barcelona made me planning a flight out of rainy HEL...

MUC is a great airport, many ways. Beside the general design I like the prices there.

Quoting finnishway (Thread starter):
Bombardier at MUC, not sure about the airline.

Augsburg Airways?

Quoting finnishway (Thread starter):
Rambla de Mar

I liked that part of Barcelona, there I could finally find food outside the local dinner hours

Both items look good, never seen them before on LH.

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

Thanks for your comments!

Quoting Widebodyroga (Reply 1):

I definitely did and I would go again.

Quoting filoflyer (Reply 2):

I agree with you and service was just great! They carried more drinks all the time and everything was free.

Quoting HELyes (Reply 3):

I completely agree. There was a lot of space, good air conditioning (BCN didn't have as good) and great service. I was little disappointed about the visitors terrace, since I didn't find a way to get there, maybe next time.

Quoting HELyes (Reply 3):

Lovely place indeed, maybe even the best part of Barcelona (where I visited).

Quoting PlaneHunter (Reply 4):
D-AIFE is an A343.

My mistake .
