Air Berlin AB6555 Berlin – Frankfurt

Aircraft: Boeing 737 Miles: 268 Duration: 1hr15mins

Hello from Frankfurt!

If you haven’t been to Berlin lately (or at all), please go! What a fun city. It is interesting, fun, has some beautiful buildings…and we highly recommend the Adlon, and not just for martinis (which were delicious!). Such impressive service, well located, and everything is just beautifully presented. Thanks to GHA and Kempinski – it made our breather truly fabulous and is giving us the drive to continue.

We had a swift journey down from Berlin at lunchtime, and we are now awaiting our 19:30 departure on LAN from Frankfurt to Madrid. We have been guested into the Japan Airlines Lounge at FRA, which is a wonderful place to spend some time before our flight. The lounge is bright and airy, with a wide selection of snacks, drinks, newspapers and magazines, showers and wonderful Toto toilets.

Our flight on AB was much like yesterday’s, with good service and a pleasant snack service. Our thanks to AB for their kind care and attention. We took hand luggage today to avoid any potential of anything going missing. Our connection at MAD isn’t long, so having our few possessions with us is critical. We fly later on the overnight to Moscow.

We’re also happy to report that Mr. Kelly’s generous donation took us over our fundraising target – hurrah!! We couldn’t be more thrilled, pleased, excited, jubilant, happy, chuffed, tickled and more to have reached this milestone. THANK YOU ALL! We’re so humbled by your generosity – it is profoundly moving. Of course, we never turn additional funds down, so if you’re able, do give. To exceed our target would be truly fabulous! Again, our deepest appreciation to all donors. Wow. You are keeping us going!
