Two approaches to Jozi for the price of one

Monday, 13. September 2010

Maybe 50 vertical meters to touch down the pilot did pull up for a “lap of honour” in the Jo’burg area – the cabin wasn’t ready yet for landing. But the whole action was very smooth like the whole journey.

My first travel with the Airbus A380 was a very positive experience.
Boarding in Frankfurt was faster than formerly.
Since the A380 is bigger than the 747 that used to serve this route some seats left over. Lucky me, I had no seatmate.
Row spacing seems to be a centimeter bigger as well.
Due to the size of the A380 row 64 is in front of the engines. But even in the tail the Airbus it is less noisy.

Last not least you get a state-of-the-art entertainment center in the backrest of the seat in front of you.

Alltogether I even did enjoy a couple of hours sleeping on my way home.
