We left Miami at about 5 PM on an A330 Airbus. We had a smooth flight with a 150 MPH tail wind. We got to Dusseldorf at midnight your time - 6AM over here. It is still dark.
Lulu and I had our own rows so we could spread out. Air Berlin is a nice airline. We had two meals - free wine if you wanted it.
We have a short flight to Berlin in an hour or so.
