Lufthansa Experience


I took a Lufthansa flight from City airport to Frankfurt. It was a morning flight and the flights attendant had just passed through with coffee and breakfast croissants.



The woman in this photo is not the flight attendant, but the young woman who sat in front of me changing the nappy of her child.

“No”, she explained when I asked her to use the nappy changing table in the toilet.  “There is not enough space in the toilet, my boy is too big.” She would not stop and continued to wipe her son’s ass whilst the people around her were having their breakfast.

Perhaps Lufthansa could bar this woman from future flights? Who knows what she will be up to when she flies with her incontinent grandmother?

  2. Du solltest als Junggeselle, wie ich, in der Business fliegen, dort erlebt man zwar auch oft Scheisse, aber wenigstens geruchlos.

  8. מה אומר ומה אדבר - כמעט כמו תמיד אתה צודק.... חוסר הרגישות של אנשים (ובעיקר הצעירים כמובן) מדהימה אותי כל פעם מחדש ולעיתים אכן אני חשה כדינוזאור שחונך באנטרטיקה ולא במקומי הטבעי.

  14. Ha, now I know why I couldn't read your blog in China. It talks about the ultimate terrorist threat, the lethal biological bomb, the 'super poo'! Having made several flights with a toddler Even if I never faced the risk of a 'super poo' explosion on a plane - so no harm to my fellow passengers - I can only be sympathetic with the mother. The poor woman was trapped between the 'super poo' and grumpy David. Oh dear!
    On the other hand, being older and grumpier, and no longer travelling with toddlers, I sympathise with you, and travel business class to avoid any inconvenience.
