LH A380 Timelapse Video - IAH

Fri Sep 14, 2012 3:52 am

Got a kick out of this video...a 30 sec. time lapse video of the arrival / departure of the very first LH A380 flight into IAH.

It's amazing how organized LH staff at IAH have organized the boarding process as opposed to the boarding process at FRA. I didn't get to venture upstairs but it's amazing how full an entire Y cabin gets! LH 441/440 is my favorite way to get to Europe now, despite the chaos that is FRA!

Very nice. The video seems to vary in speed. You can see that by looking at the plane's shadow's movement. Probably would have been too boring in the middle otherwise.

seems that the lower jetbridge takes a long time to get into position compared to the higher one!

I wonder if they do this to make sure that F and Biz class pax can get a first go at immigration.......
My dream, is to fly, over the rainbow, so high!

Very cool.

If you look at the end of the right wing from the 12 second through the 16 second mark you can see it drop as the wing is loaded with fuel.

Do they use LH staff at IAH, or do they contract the ground servicing out at IAH like at most airports?
