What To Expect On A Zeppelin Flight

Mon May 09, 2011 1:25 pm

With my family I plan to have a Zeppelin flight from Friedrichshafen, Germany.

Searching a.net, I did not find any posts as to what we can expect. Any infos&photos&etc. you can share?

Usually a low-level flight (cruise) over Lake Constance.

See http://www.zeppelinflug.de/seiten/E/default.htm for information in case you haven't browsed through it yet.

IIRC, Departure / Arrival is to FDH, but usually not from the main terminal of that small airport but from some designated area.
All seats are assigned and I am not sure if you are allowed to move around during cruise. All seats are window seats.

It also says "Passengers can move about within the gondola to get the best photos"
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...
