Fine dining with Star Alliance and Lufthansa

Wrapping up the first day of the tours here in Germany, our group was treated to a meal by the folks from Lufthansa and Star Alliance.  The event was held in the main dining room of Lufthansa’s executive offices just off the airport grounds and we were very well taken care of, to say the least.

Good booze and good food flowed, as did good friendship and camaraderie.

Jan Albrecht was present, along with a number of other executives from airlines and the alliance.  They were happy to circulate among the crowd and get feedback from our group, with one of them noting rather humbly that they knew that the FlyerTalk community has a more in-depth understanding of their products than even they do and that they depend on us a good amount to know when things are broken.

A few more speeches, including the very appropriate and heartfelt thanks being extended to the organizers of the event.

Lufthansa had some flight attendants at the event as part of the photo shoot and then to be at the party to show off some of the retro uniforms that they used to use.  Quite sharp, to say the least.

John celebrating the fact that he managed to lose and find his passport in the 12 hours prior to the departure from the USA.  He had great reason to drink and celebrate, not that we really need good reasons.
