Adventure at 37,000 Feet

On my recent trip to Germany, what does one do during an 11 hour flight? After a few hours of fidgeting in my seat, we were then flying over the Gulf of Boothia. Have you heard of this location?

And, we were going very fast and very high in the cold air.

I started to roam around the plane. Going down a flight of stairs were 6 restrooms stalls. This is a fairly unique layout since stalls are usually located on the same level as passengers.

On the same level as the stalls was a small snack area where passengers get pick up snacks and drinks.

Meanwhile back upstairs, most passengers were either asleep or watched movies on their tiny monitors in the dark.

The airplane cabin looks incredible, like an alien spaceship!

Good to travel to so many places!

Roentarre: It was very space age looking, but hope I wasn't on an alien spaceship. :P

Lilli: I will try not to disappoint you with my trip report. As for the tv screens, the camera didn't capture what was playing on them, but passengers had the option to turn them off.

RuneE: The worst part about going on an overseas trip is the plane ride.

Technology makes all things so different than they used to be, and I mean a few years ago. Glad you're back--liked the Stuttgart photos, too. It's hard to understand why one person needs such a large place to call home.
