StarMegaDo is an amazing experience at many levels. This afternoon we experienced that by being in two places at the same time. We were standing on the ground in Frankfurt and then walked up the stairs and suddenly found ourselves in München.
In this case München is the name of D-AIMB, one of the Airbus A380s that Lufthansa has in service. And they had it available for all of us to tour this afternoon to kick off the Frankfurt portion of StarMegaDo 2010. I’ve seen the A380s a few times and I still have trouble processing just how absolutely HUGE the airplane is. That means, among other things, that it makes for a great tour because of all the different sections, cabins and features.
The first class lavatory on the A380 is actually larger than the bathroom in my apartment. That was a rather depressing and shocking discovery though I also realize that the rent I’m paying is quite a bit less than buying F seats every night. On the plus side (I suppose),
I have the advantage that at least my feet actually reach the cushion/ottoman.
We spent time in the cockpit:
We spent time in Coach:
And we spent time in the crew rest bunks, too:
Did I mention that the A380 is HUGE???
Seriously beautiful plane.
