Now that I’m back from an 8 day rally through Europe that took me to Frankfurt, Hamburg, Istanbul and Zurich, I have a lot of things to bring to your attention.

New apps are on the horizon from LH, as well as new looks for Miles & More and other exciting developments.     In addition, I’ll talk about the great time that everyone had on Hamburg-DO as we visited LH Technik and Airbus and took in the Hamburg Port Festival as well.   I’ll also introduce you to a fantastic charity operated by a dedicated team within Lufthansa Cargo that brings aide to children to a tiny village in Kenya.   Finally, I’ll share with you the details of what may have been the best LH First Class cabin crew that I’ve ever experienced.

I almost forgot, there are nearly 1300 plane spotting images I need to organize as well and share some of the best ones such as this one from ZRH:



But I digress….


As I sort through quite a list of things to write about, I’ll start with something simple and exciting:

Thanks to my friends at LH, I came  home with some ‘Swag’ that they wanted me to share with you.  Over the coming weeks I’ll be giving these items away through simple drawings on the website.  Yes, there is a duck involved…..

To start things off, I have available a very limited edition Business Class amenity kit that commemorates the 2014 World Cup that will be held in Brazil later this summer.   The amenity kit has a German flavor to it as it celebrates the German National Team:





The kit is only available in LH’s Longhaul Business Class, and will only be around for a few more weeks.    For those of you who collect amenity kits or are fans of Football, don’t miss your chance to win this unique souvenir kit.
