I had a good feeling about this one until I got on board. I was able to change my MileagePlus award ticket to get the idea timing for my flights from Denver to Geneva. This was my first time flying long haul with Lufthansa in coach and I was expecting their entire long haul fleet to have seat back TV’s in coach (they have all the other times I’ve flown with them). Once I boarded, I noticed the old business class (not uncommon, they are still updating aircraft) and then I entered the economy cabin and was stunned to find there were no seat back TV’s. This was going to be a very long 9 hour flight (unlike my short 10 hour flight with Lufthansa in First).

After quickly clearing customs in Frankfurt, I went to the closest Lufthansa lounge for lunch and internet. The closest lounge was closed for remodeling, so it wound up being a very far walk. The business lounge was packed and I grabbed one of the last available seats (Star Gold members can also use the Senator lounge, but that was a hike). After a quick snack and some wandering the internet, I went to my gate for Geneva.

After landing in Geneva, I grabbed the 75 minute free public transport ticket in baggage claim and went to catch my bus to the Intercontinental Hotel. My trip had some good surprises and I was anticipating more.
