Instead of having a seat at the pointy end of the A380, I got an aisle seat over the shakey wing of a noisier Boeing 747, that had the community television monitors over the aisles. They decided to show a 2+ hour film (X-Men: Days of Future Past) with 80 minutes left in the flight. The good thing was the empty middle seat next to me.
In Frankfurt, I was able to spend some of my remaining Euros (from Italy) on snacks, drinks, and a souvenir for a lucky person. During boarding to Oslo, my pass would not work. Going back to the desk, I was told that someone cancelled my boarding pass. I was quickly rebooked into another aisle seat over the wing, losing my window seat at the pointy end, again (it’s quieter and more stable there).
In Oslo, I have to transfer from the international to domestic terminal, which means clearing customs (no passport stamp😯) and going back through security, which means I can’t bring the drinks I had bought in Frankfurt. Drinking 1L of room temperature soda in 10 minutes isn’t that fun (nor would throwing them away).
Now I wait 5 hours for my last flight to Tromso. I ask about changing flights and am told it would cost US$210 to be on a flight 2 hours earlier. No thanks. I originally booked the later flight in case I missed the 80 minute connection in Frankfurt on Lufthansa, which as you now know wasn’t a problem as itinerary changes gave me a 2 hour layover in Frankfurt where passport control took 11 seconds.
