I was connecting from Amsterdam to Frankfurt on my way to Shanghai and so enjoyed a A319 operated shorthaul trip with LH.
The business class cabin was pretty empty – just three passengers and so I managed to slip in to Row 1 and enjoyed a pretty good view of the take-off and landing. I am usually an ‘aisle man’ so this was a pleasure.
Good leg room in Row 1 as usual, but as these are reserved for their best frequent flyers they are hard to get in to. Luckily the whole row was empty on my flight so the crew did not mind me moving. I later learned that the manifest tells the crew that the passenger is connecting to First Class at FRA as they mentioned this to me, asking where I was going.
A nice flight, with a nice crew, probably helped by being pretty quiet.
