Five Flights in Five Words: SIN-FRA/HHN-TMP/HEL-FRA-MUC-SIN on LH/FR/AY Y

Wordy trip report? Not this.
Five words in every line.
Map and flight list: http://openflights.org/trip/214

LH 779 SIN-FRA seat 55K

Twelve hours in tin can.
Ancient jumbo, even toilet scuffed.
Man, not flying SQ sucks.

Mainz

Beer. Sausage. Beer. Schnitzel. Beer.

Frankfurt Book Fair

Weekdays all work, weekend play.
Bounteous, mostly underaged, cosplayer bonanza.
Next time, bring better lens.

Deutsche Bahn

Unreserved tickets are a pleasure.
But whence famed German punctuality?

Cologne

The Dom: yes, it’s big.
Lounge in Marriott Cologne rocks.

Wuppertal

Suspended monorail for the win.
Even had to buy T-shirt.

Assmannshausen

Everybody else here is retired.
Good wine though. Where’s Tittenmädchenplatz?

Burg Eltz

It’s a pretty castle alright,
but I preferred the hike.

Luxembourg

Arab oil sheikhdom, only European.
Hearing spoken Lëtzebuergesch scares me.
Judd mat gaardebounen with Diekirch!

FR 1921 HHN-TMP seat ??

Ryanair: it’s not so bad
when expecting rubber glove proctology.
(Well, OK, it’s still bad.)

Tampere

Salsa with five blonde pixies,
plus Finnish mixology until three.
It was worth the hangover.

Helsinki

Michelin starred lunchelf shopping,
flourescent minigolfmore wild parties.
Even the weather mostly cooperated.

AY829 HEL-FRA E190 seat 20A

First AY flight in years.
Bumpy Embraer, sad snack pack.
I’ll stick with Star Alliance.

HI Frankfurt Airport-Nord

Albanian shuttle-cabbie brought along girlfriend.
Time-warp motel free on PointSavers.
Decent room, chocolate, decaying fruit.

FRA LH Senator Lounge

Healthy German breakfast: beer & sausage.

LH966 FRA-MUC A321 seat 30F

Bigger than the Helsinki plane.
More time waiting than flying.
Take off, snack, circle, land.

MUC LH Senator Lounge

Munchen wrapped in foggy quilt.
Empty terminal is shaded gray.
Only my flight not delayed.

LH790 MUC-SIN A340 seat 55K

So much nicer than jumbo.
AVOD, decent pitch, great service.
But ending soon? Load 20%…

Conclusion

Patronage and praise much appreciated.
Next time, I’ll try haiku.
