Several cities have experienced a significant number of cancellations due to the storm.
Jan Slept nearly 10 hrs, and woke up feeling even more like death than the night before. Went to the Sheraton Executive lounge for the breakfast, where there was fresh-squeezed orange juice. I think I had 3 or 4 glasses, along with several espressos, and began to feel marginally functional.
Rather than deal with a cab, I decided to take the hotel shuttle to the airport for 10 TND, and be at least marginally more comfortable. Check-in for Lufthansa at Tunis took an eternity — or at least it felt like that.
Waited in line for at least 15 minutes, and even then they could only check me in for the first segment to Frankfurt…and seats? It was one of those old s sticker maps where they peeled a sticker off a sheet with your seat assignment.
Once all the stickers were gone, there were no more seats. Anyone have a clue why Tunis operates SO old school? Through immigration and security, and into the TunisAir lounge which is used by Lufthansa. Not what I needed with a horrid cold and congestion already.
I was ready to get out of there! We boarded just 5 minutes before departure, and ended up leaving nearly 20 minutes late…getting into Frankfurt 20 minutes late. This brought my connection down to barely an hour…. Seemed to be the pretty typical Lufthansa meal, nothing overly special.
I spent most of the flight dozing in and out and watching some tv on the iPad…just trying to get through it. The one big disappointment upon landing in Frankfurt — although we were at a remote bus gate, there was no car transfer waiting for me.
I had to take a bus to the terminal, and use the regular security lines with everyone else. Waiting in a cold bus, and long hot security lines…not my idea of fun. Got to the lounge in Frankfurt with about five minutes to use it, but that was enough time to get a few glasses of water and freshen up again before heading to the next flight.
The lounge agents were very apologetic, but nothing they could do about the missed transfer request at this point. Economy was pretty full, so no clue what they were thinking.
We arrived in Munich nearly 20 minutes early, and at an actual gate, so I had plenty of time to unwind in the lounge — over two hours! The lounge was actually relatively full when I arrived just after 7pm, but it did thin out quite a bit by 9pm. Caught up on some stuff online, and before I knew it it was time to head to the gate and board.
First was only booked to 5 of 8 seats, including a mother and approx 8yo son in the first row…but he was perfectly behaved.
The minute I was seated, the pre-departure treats arrived! Mmmm macadamia nuts and champagne. I nibbled on most of the dinner, having a fair amount of all the courses. By this point, I must have been somewhat dehydrated despite all the water I was drinking, because savoury foods sounded especially good.
I admit, I did have three helpings of caviar as an appetizer, and it was fantastic. The veal main course was very tasty as well.
Topped off with a few glasses of champagne and red wine…along with some cheese for desert, and I had no trouble falling asleep for a solid 7 hours. She was bringing me tea because I needed it.
I have to say, it was fantastic too. I also let myself be talked into a bit of breakfast.
I have to admit, I actually landed feeling many many times better than when I left Munich. Yes, I was definitely still sick, but the sleep, tea, and care of the Lufthansa staff went a long, long way to making me feel much better.SeatGuru was created to help travelers choose the best seats and in-flight amenities.

I think this is an improvement— about ten years ago I seem to recall I couldn't get a seat assignment on LH until day-of-departure. And there was plenty of consternation at.
