My flight was on Lufthansa German Airlines departing from Osaka Kansai Airport, which is located on the west part of Japan. The round-trip airfare to Munich was about 132,900yen, including the fuel surcharge, airport fees and tax cost.Surprisingly, out of the toatl price, 52,000 yes was the fuel surcharge!
Lufthansa German Airlines
Is the biggest airline company in Germany and it is also the second biggest airline company in Europe. One of the reasons why I had chosen Lufthansa was that it was the national airways of Germany. Because my image of Germany was that they were all big, I had thought that a seat of Lufthansa was wider than another airline's seat. But it wasn't wider than I had expected.... Of cource, it wasn't so uncomfortable to me because I was small and I had reserved an aisle seat. However non-Japanese around me had a big build and they hit their knees on the seat in front of them. They all looked scrunched up in ther seats during the 12 hour flight and I kind of felt sorry for them.
center:My frist German beer on this trip. Unfortunately, it wasn't tap beer.... I really recommend Lufthansa to serve tap beer on board!! If it happens, Lufthansa Airlines must become a very popular airline in the world!
Because there wasn't a direct flight from Osaka to Munich, I had to transfer to domestic flights to Munich at Frankfurt Airport. Narita Airport, which was the largest international airport in Japan, was much closer to my place than Osaka was. Actually, I had to move to Osaka on the day before my departure from Osaka Airport and I had to pay extra money for an overnight stay at Osaka! If I chose to depart from Narita Airport in Tokyo, I could leave my house on that day and I could save much money. But, I'd never been to TOKYO before and I was still afraid of going to TOKYO alone. I would prefer paying extra money to going to TOKYO alone!
When I finally arrived at my accommodation in Munich, it was 8p.m.(it was after 3a.m. Japanese local time). I was awfully tired after a long flight from Japan, especially, a two-and-half hour layover at Frankfurt Airport which beated me! I had a lot of time on my hands at the airport and it was really hard to try to keep awake. So, I couldn't eat out for dinner and my memorable first dinner in Germany was this supplement I brought from Japan.... It was disappointing....
