However, this is not a usual flight. This is THE flight. The most important flight for Andrea in the 19.000 flight hours maybe. It’s her LAAAASSSST flight!!!!!
The last flight as a Lufthansa pilot.
In the evening Andrea puts on her suit, packs up her stuff, and is ready hours before we need to go. Obviously she is pretty nervous. She hasn’t been in years. But me and Plans we calm her down in the Hotel room.
Finally it is time to head to the airport. One last look in the mirror.
“You look beautiful”, we tell her. And actually not as a woman with her last flight, if I might add!
Then we arrive in the crew lobby of Lufthansa at the airport. SURPRISE!!!!
There are so many people apart from the crew who came along to celebrate this special moment with Andrea. Andrea (and also me) is already touched, but then somebody turns her around, and hand her the Golden Jacket!!! – A special recognition for her extraordinary career at Lufthansa.
In the plane we are enjoying the First class while waiting for the passengers…
Then we start off on time. A very long flight – over 12 hours awaits us. Pretty hard for a LAST flight. But also just before landing, Andrea looks still fresh and ready to go for another one….
Good luck to you and your plans for the future!
It was wonderful being a part of this important phase of your life.
Thank you, Andrea!!!!!!
