LAURA’S TRIP BEGINS
JANUARY 1, 2007 POSTING
I arrived on time in Munich on Saturday morning and got the train to Garmish with no difficulty.
As for my Lufthansa plane, I think it might have been a new one. It had that shiny quality to it. And it had the new-fangled cup holders that are rings you can put a cup or bottle in without having to lower the tray-table (I first saw that on South African on my trip in October). I can't answer to the leg room, but I've been more cramped before. Of course, I was on the end (middle section) and the seat between me and the guy on the other end was empty -- ah, elbow and knee room. And it helped that I was in the back of the plane, where due to the tapering of the fuselage, the middle section was only three seats across rather than four. The food was excellent! All brown! I thought it was turkey, stuffing and potatoes with green beans, but now I think it was turkey, dumplings and potatoes with green beans. I was also impressed that all the junk in the seat pocket - the magazine, the barf bag, the catalog and the safety manual - were all in self contained clear plastic folder. What genius thought that up? It was so easy to keep my things separate from their things.
