My visit to England started with a very dramactic scene – that is me waving goodbye to my airplane. I have always followed my golden rule – that is to be at least 2 hours before my flight at the airport. The V suggested we do an early check in and it is not necessary to be there 2 hours at least so we were there an hour before the flight – what do you know we still needed to fall in line for the luggage check in - and I mean a long, long line and I needed to fall in line with 3 controls – 2 airline security checks and one passport control – I arrived 15 minutes before the departure time and they have closed the gate! I could only wave at my plane!
That moment was so out of this world – almost surreal - like a scene from a movie – it couldn’t be happening to me. The good thing is Frankfurt Airport has a good system with its luggage procedure that mine knew (very intelligent) that I didn’t board the plane even after I have checked in and it didn’t fly with the machine. So what else to do – go to the Lufthansa help desk, get a new ticket which also took a long time - it turned out I wasn’t the only one with this agony – the cost of the new ticket is 5x more expensive than my ticket and I have to take the plane the next day – otherwise it would cost me 10x more flying the same day!
So there you go – the start of my journey! Wish me all the best from now on -
