Sleep Adjustment

When I got on the plane at San Francisco Airport I had a long night hanging out with all my friends and only getting three hours worth of sleep. My flight was an early afternoon flight from San Francisco to Frankfurt which is 11 hours long, then a 3.5 hour lay over at Fraport, then a 5 hour flight from Frankfurt to Kuwait.

From the moment I got the airport I felt tired, but I was also hungry. A friend of mine called in late to work and took me to the airport and we were listening to Howard Stern the whole drive up. I’m not one for goodbyes and so I just head out tell people I will see them later, especially since I’m really close with a lot of the guys there. I’m just happy I took a lot of pictures, and enjoyed my time with them, I’m very happy for all of them when I see them doing good.

I always think about everything that just took place as soon as I get on the plane, and I knew that I was going get some sleep on the plane. As soon as I got on I ate lunch while watching some anime, and it was about two hours in when I fell asleep, and I only woke up 40 minutes before the plane landed, so I managed to sleep about 8 hours which felt great. The one thing I don’t like about Lufthansa is the layover at Fraport since there isn’t a good place to eat and nothing much to do since their magazine place “Relay” doesn’t have too much of a choice. I watched some anime while at the lounge which killed sometime until my flight to Kuwait, then I headed over to the gate since it was 40 minutes before boarding.

As soon as I got comfortable I switched on my laptop, plugged in the power connector, and kept watching as much anime as possible. I felt a little tired so I took a nap and when I woke up the plane was 30 minutes from landing. And my sleep has almost been adjusted in Kuwait but its still a little off, I feel a little tired around the afternoon since I went right into work the next day without recouping for the long flight!

    welcome back and hope you had a blast :)

  2. Never been on lufthansa, there chairs looks hella comfy no wonder u slept like a baby hehehe

    I’ve never been able to sleep on planes! I took a 14 hr flight to Singapore without sleeping >.

  3. I don’t like Lufthansa period. My first trip to the states was a nightmare on that airline, a 7 hour layover in Frankfurt while you’re exhausted and tired from the long flight there and then another long flight ugh :/

  4. When I flew Lufthansa Muscat to Frankfurt this summer the seats were a newer design than the one you have in your pictures. I’d have thought that for an 11 hour flight LA to Frankfurt they’d have the more comfortable seats rather than these. Well at least you managed to sleep, so at least it worked for you.

  5. DiiGMaa: Thanks! Yup I did have a blast!

    Ananyah: yup they were comfy, I sleep anywhere anytime! Its all about my needs! lol!

    Jacqui: Some people like it and some hate it! Really brings mixed reactions!

    muscati: I think they do need an upgrade for these planes, but I didn’t think they had already updated some of them. I would like to see that for sure!

    Laialy: I don’t avoid because I like seeing those people!

    Those seats do look comfy! I would sleep the whole way too! Lufthansa has very comfortable planes – I am actually looking to book a trip with them to Dublin – they are having an awesome fare sale right now.
