My return flight from Australia to Frankfurt - weird routing again but I had no choice... The lady at the check-in counter in Sydney even tried to book me on the direct flight when I told her about my destination but it was already fully booked. Later I saw Frankfurt airport from the air and nearly missed my flight connection in LHR due to engine trouble in Sydney, a medical emergency in Bangkok and because we had to wait for permission to enter the Afghan airspace. Fortunately the fast track line makes things easier!

As you can imagine, flying through a tropical thunderstorm at night was no fun either...
