Flying Split to Munich on Lufthansa

flying split to Munich on Lufthansa

I love plane views. When I bought the GoPro a couple of months ago I did it precisely because I wanted to capture views from mountains, towers and especially planes.

In mid-June I left Spanky behind in Split (Croatia) and flew to Mexico to visit my mom. This video captures the first leg of my trip from Split to Mexico City (via Munich). It’s about 3 Β½ minutes long and captures some of the highlights from the 65 minute flight, including takeoff, popping through the clouds on the way up, popping through the clouds when descending, and landing. It also includes the beer I had while watching a football game in Munich Airport. You might have to be a plane geek like me to fully appreciate it πŸ™‚

The plane above is a Lufthansa Airbus 321. After a 3 hour layover in Munich I got on a larger Lufthansa plane, an Airbus 340-600, for the 11 Β½ flight to Mexico City which arrived at 4 am in the morning. It was a long day.

  1. I’m definitely not a plane geek, but I do enjoy a nice shot/video clip taken from my window seat. And I have yet to fly Lufthansa although I have seen some pretty good deals from them in the recent past.

      We’ve often found ourselves flying them over the last 2 years, reason being – like you say – they have reasonable fares and are reliable. Have never had a problem with them (Oops, except that one time back in 2009 when my baggage got lost for about 24 hrs…)

  2. Hilarious! The Go Pros are great fun, I join in your enthusiasm! so light and tough, amazing how they handle vibrations and still produce pretty good footage. I am looking forward to more of your Go Pro moments Frank! Are you going to get a drone too??

      Thank you Jane. Do you have one as well? I love the clarity and scope, for certain things video does what photos could never convey. I’d have fun with a drone but no – can’t imagine lugging that around and I think I have enough new toys for this year πŸ™‚

  3. If you’re a plane geek, come to Seattle and visit the Boeing Factory and see how these things are made. Disclaimer, I work here so I have obvious leanings towards Boeing planes πŸ™‚

      That’s pretty cool Hung Thai. Yes, I’m a plane geek. I used to have a large model plane collection (Click if you want to see some of my planes πŸ™‚ ) which is now sitting in storage in Montreal. I had even built an airport with flashing runway lights.

      My all-time favorite plane is still the Boeing 747 and my favorite plane memory is of flying a UTA 747-400 (a French airline later bought by Air France) from Paris to Lusaka (Zambia). It was one of those airlines that flew to all the off-the-beaten-path destinations. It was a milk run, we stopped in Libreville and Brazzaville before landing in Lusaka. It continued on to Lilongwe. Loved it.

      What do you do at Boeing?

      • Nice collection! You’re missing the new 787 models but I guess it’ll just end up in storage at this point haha. If you haven’t been on one yet, you should definitely give it a try – it is smooooth; I was on a flight from Seattle to Japan on ANA’s 787 and I didn’t know we had taken off because it was so smooth.

        • Frank (bbqboy) says:

          I haven’t flown a 787 yet…haven’t flown an Airbus 380 either, love the big planes.

          I haven’t added to my collection in a few years so its outdated. But it’s also what I like about looking at those planes, the aircrafts have changed as well as the color schemes.

  4. how was the inflight experience?

      Good, I like Lufthansa.
      Flying Split – Munich was just an hour, uneventful really.
      Munich – Mexico City was 11 1/2 and the stewardess was sweet on me and came by a few times to fill me up with Cognac.
      Have to say much better than most airlines (including Air Canada…)

  5. Well, I am as far from being a plane geek as humanly possible, but I did like your video. I “hate” to fly. If I never fly in another plane in my life I would be good with that. But, until someone builds a bridge from the US to Europe, I am forced to fly. Me and my cocktail in a pill. I don’t mind the take offs and landings, it’s the turbulence that freaks me out. Had a bad experience in a single engine plane nearly 40 years ago that left me permanently scarred. c’est la vie. The longest flight we’ve taken was from San Francisco to Auckland, NZ. I think it was 12 1/2 – 13 hours, something like that. Like being in a sardine can, not that I know what sardines feel. πŸ˜‰

      Poor you, I remember you mentioning previously your fear of flying Patti. We had our own small plane incidents that have marked us for life…we try to avoid them at all costs. And agree also about long flights, anything over 10 hours just too long…

Thanks for reading! Feedback is always appreciated!
