Quick Layover in Frankfurt

Well I was at John F. Kennedy airport where I was waiting for the one item that I was actually extremely excited for, flying on the largest airplane in the world and on the world’s best airline! It was Singapore Airlines flight 25 on the Airbus A380 from New York to Frankfurt that I was about to take! The A380 is the only complete double decker aircraft in the world and it was first flown by Singapore Airlines back in 2008. It is considered the most luxurious aircraft in the world, especially by when flown by Singapore Airlines. It was an incredibly smooth 6.5 hour flight over to Frankfurt on the surprisingly silent A380. I have never flown on an aircraft that you could barely tell was taking off because of how quiet the interior was! However funny story was when we were about half way through the flight somewhere above the atlantic ocean when everyone was sleeping I decided to go exploring through the massive aircraft. I walked to the front of the lower deck and saw the A380 suites on Singapore Airlines which were incredible and then went to the upper deck where I saw the business class as well. However I was standing on the upper deck when I started chatting with one of the stewardess’s who asked me where I was going and what I was doing. Well one thing led to another and we continued to chat about Hong Kong and Barcelona and then she asked me if I had ever tried the called the Singapore Sling. I responded with ‘No’ and she hurried away and brought me one back. Well I can honestly say that at 40,000 feet, that drink tasted incredible! And after chit chatting for a while and many more Singapore Slings, I really was having a great time on the upper deck of the A380! Unfortunately we hit some bumps and I had to return back to my seat after a great little experience!

Then I got to Frankfurt and 10:00AM and had 5 hours to burn before the Barcelona flight. So it was Schnitzel and a Beer (das Schnitzel und ein Bier) and then I was off to the remarkable Frankfurt airplane viewing deck with a great view over the Apron and the main parallel runways!

After watching airplane after airplane and litterally being in heaven, I jumped on Lufthansa 1014 A321 en route to Barcelona. It was a quick 2 hour flight over the snowy Swiss Alps and over the Mediterranean and we were in the incredible city of Barcelona!
