We arrived right on time at the airport using the Van Nuys Fly away bus. The sign-in at Lufthansa was smooth as butter and they are organized and very professional. Thank you Lufthansa for saving our bacon from Air France and their strike.
We are flying a 747 which is nothing new for us. Well no more at this time.

The lack of space in this “cattle car” is appalling. The staff is competent, the food barely adequate. The experience is just painful. We will think hard and long about going through this again to get to Europe.
We have had a few bumps but not really not bad so far.
I think the best part of this is the excellent organization of getting all those people into the plane in such a quick way.
We are about 4 1/2 hours away from landing in Frankfurt Germany. We have a little more than an hour to to find and board our flight to Paris. Wish us luck.

We landed ahead of time and it took us a good hour to get through the mess to our new plane. We met a business man from San Francisco and he gave us some tips about Paris.
The Flight was fine and we were met by our tour person and we had a van take us into Paris, 15 miles in terrible traffic. Glad I wasn’t driving. Nice room with kitchen.
