Two Trains now a Plane

When I head home from Germany I usually have to take two trains to the airport. Then it is time for a long flight.

Regional Train, Jena Goschwitz, Train Travel

The first train is a regional train. Luckily, I didn’t have to be up as early as I had to for this one. I decided to take the evening flight so I didn’t have to wake up at 3:30.

This morning the train was packed and there were people standing in the aisles.

ICE, Erfurt, Germany, Train, High Speed Train

In Erfurt I boarded an ICE train which is much more comfortable and quite a bit faster. It was still full, but I at least had a nice seat and a place to put my bags.

ICE, Frankfurt, Germany, Train, High Speed Train

The train stops right at a station connected to the Frankfurt airport so it is then just a long walk to the check-in area.

Today I had a choice of several trains with a different number of connections. The route with only the one connection runs every two hours so I had the choice of two extra hours at the hotel or two extra hours at the airport. I chose the airport option just in case.

I can now relax while waiting for my flight.

Welcome Aboard - United 787 Entertainment system - Boeing 787

Thankfully I am flying on the 787 as it is my favorite type of plane. The air in the plane is not as dry so it makes for better breathing.

Business Class 787, United Airlines, UA1, SFO to SIN

I will have a nice seat on the plane thanks to the upgrades that I received due to the There and Back flight that I took last year.

Now to sit back and relax and have a nice lunch in the Senator Lounge.
