That little booklet they call a passport works pretty well for determining where you’ve been and if you should be allowed to head to the US. Nice of you to clarify that you don’t travel internationally, but still have big opinions on it. A passport is useless for this purpose. Looking at mine, a bo...

Re: Lufthansa A340-600 Tegel 20 May 2016.

Occasionally they used to operate A346 on some flights to Munich as well as 744 to Frankfurt. Might’ve been that. That was in late 2017 after the demise of Air Berlin. My guess is football fans (either a charter flight or a regular one operated with something bigger than the A320 series) because th...
