Welcome to my long awaited trip report with Lufthansa!
As you know the past few years has been challenging for everyone, I was grounded after my Ethiopian Airlines trip to London at the end of 2019. At that time when the Covid was spreading across many continents, the decision to not to fly because at that time, vaccination was not yet available and the high cost of medical fees and the risk wasn't worth it. By the end of 2021, the situation was still unstable with many cases, more than 2020 but the differences are most of us are fully vaccinated and also the Omnicorn virus wasn't as deadly as the previous variants so when most countries reopened the borders, I knew I had to do my flying trip soon. I decided to go at the end of May as it was the end of the 2nd term for my students and I could take a couple of weeks off to do what I want, with my partner's blessing. At the time when I did the booking, airfare was quite cheap so I went ahead to do the booking, ended up with 16 flights within 2 weeks. I was determined to make this one of my best trips.
The first flights I booked was with Swiss Airlines originally it was supposed to be Singapore to London via Zurich and return on the same route but in January 2022, I received a notification from the airline that the date I was originally booked on, was changed to a day later which was not ideale and furthermore the aircraft on both flights were changed, as I didn't want to fly the Airbus A340-300, I looked at other dates and noticed Lufthansa was flying the Airbus A350-900 on the MUC-SIN sector while the A340-300 (Originally scheduled to be B747-8I) was doing the FRA-SIN sector, so I went for the A350-900, flying on thursday instead.
