|Quoting falstaff (Thread starter):|
I would like to do the entire trip on Skyteam, but is that even possible anymore?
No. SkyTeam does not serve LEJ
Seeing that you are heading for Halle (Saale), your options are flying into
, then train for 3h45min to 4h30min (usually 1 transfer)
, then train hourly for 2h45min (1 transfer at Hannover Central station); fares start at 19 € oneway (prebooked; wlak-up fare is much higher)
, then bus to Berlin Central Station, train to Halle requiring between 1h45min and 2h30min.
Of course you even could combine any of the above airport options !
At both FRA
the train station is right at the airport, meaning no dreaded bus rides to anywhere.
If you go for a train ride to Halle, consider to have your german friend purchase an online train ticket for you and you print the PDF-file (MUST be printed to serve as a ticket). At FRA
there is a train ticket counter for long distance trains, but I do not recall where to get it at HAJ
being my home base I only recall automated vending machines, which can get you local tickets and also long distance tickets - but they usually do not operate on Credit Cards).
If you really want to fly into LEJ
, you are left with LH
, or OS
is no real option, and TK
is too much of a detour.
Carpe diem ! Life is too short to waste your time ! Keep in mind, that today is the first day of the rest of your life !
