really. That only happens in the lobby departures area of Vantaa in Helsinki,
home to the greatest ‘beer for breakfast’ in the world.
At the JU-52 at InterCity Hotel Frankfurt
Airport —a vest-pocket hostelry jam-packed with great food and libations—you
can meet Harry the bartender and a giant JU-52 aircraft model on final
from the ceiling. You can also meet Marco Volk.
Just plain Volk is this Marco, who has been
situated in JU-52 for the past dozen years.
“I love it all,” says Marco,
“even the layovers that show up every weekend and come into our
place for an attitude adjustment.”
“They come in from the altitudes with
“We can’t fly them home, but
a warm welcome, a bit of cheer, and maybe a late night schnitzel can make
the landing here smooth as silk,” Marco said.
We had a small ten-inch pizza last night
with some red chili peppers Harry imported from his last trip to the spice
souk, and the combination was accelerating.
Just one more reason everyone from deadheads
to air jockeys love the hotel in Cargo City Süd.
