I don't know why my luggage was priority. I had no connecting flight to catch, I wasn't flying business class, I checked-in with plenty of time and there were few, if any, other bags checked (the overhead bins were, on the other hand, full).
Again the train was late (the one I took and the later one I was scheduled to take). Also, I was overserved. O tempora, o mores! "What happened to German and Prussian precision?", I ask whilst seated in a French restaurant in Berlin.
