Hi again! One of the most fascinating parts about being an IAP is that you have the chance to go to places and learn things you’ve never imagined! So, today I would like to share with you two great experiences I’ve had while I was in Germany…

Mercedes S-class or Porsche Cayenne?

Last July we had the amazing experience of visiting the First Class Terminal.

We arrived around 10 p.m. and we waited the last passenger leave to start our tour, after all we wouldn’t like to disturb him!

13.

The tour was around 45 minutes. We started by the lounge area where the passengers can relax in comfortable armchairs, sofas or even in beds.

After we went to the Wining and Dining area… On that week a lot of candies were waiting for the passengers! The lounge always has seasonal offers to pamper them.

Did you know that Lufthansa serves more than 50 bottles of Champagne every day at the First Class Terminal?

Unfortunately we couldn’t get any duck from the bath, but it is always an item that passengers love to have as souvenirs…

Last but not least we visited the boarding area. Inside the Terminal there is a separate passport and security control where the passengers go through before board in the limousines to go to the gate. Would you prefer to be driven by Porsche Cayennne or Mercedes S-class?

Reality or simulation?

After class in a freaking cold day you can think why we were so excited to leave our warm rooms in Seeheim…

Simple answer! We were going to visit the LufthansaFlightTrainingCenter in Frankfurt.

 

The Lufthansa Flight Training Center is responsible for training and instruction of cockpit and cabin crew, not only for Lufthansa, but also for other 200 airlines from around the world.

During our guided tour we had an introduction about training and safety procedures, the different types of training offered and some legal standards.

After that we were ready to visit the simulators. First we watched the cockpit-simulators in motion, we took a look at Lufthansa Flight Attendants School and at the impressive hall full of emergency-simulators.

The best part was when we stepped inside an “aircraft” to simulate an emergency situation.

Take-off, smoke, turbulence, oxygen masks, shouts, crash into the sea…

Everything was so real that my heart was beating fast with fright; for awhile I thought I was near to die! Awesome!

Stay tuned, because tomorrow I’ll tell you what the IAPs love to do on Fridays!
