For those that don’t know I work in Luxembourg. I typically only stay in country for several weeks at a time before heading home to Charlotte, NC. This time however, I have arranged for a short 3 day,3 country trip around Europe. I will eb conducting flight reviews on all legs. This first leg will be LUX-MUC on Luxair in Economy. I hope you enjoy this mini-series over the next few posts. 😊

Check In


For this flight, I was able to check in 24 hours in advance. During the week before the flight, I was given several opportunities to bid for an upgrade to business. The bidding starts at EUR 130. I have in the past won an upgrade for EUR 150. However, I am actually traveling in business next week on this same flight so for this review, I figured it was best to stay in economy. At check in, I was assigned 10C an aisle seat on the left side of this 2-2 cabin. I figured this was fine and accepted. I was able to obtain a mobile boarding pass for my apple wallet directly from the check-in screen on my phone.

Arrival/Security


I arrived to the airport via Bus 16. To reach Luxembourg airport you can either take the bus or arrive by car. I left from the city center which is around a 30 minute bus ride or 15 minutes by car. The bus in Luxembourg is official EUR 2 but is often free and will be 100% in the very near future.  


After entering the terminal I walk towards the check in desks then hang a right towards security. 2 security stations can be found on either side of the check in desks. Before you reach ID check, you will have your luggage size checked and if needed a gate tag will be issued. After that you then go through a USA TSA style ID check before entering security. All in all, I was able to clear all this red tape AND have my bag searched in only 5 minutes.



Boarding


After exiting security you travel downstairs and through the duty free shop. Once inside duty free you can go left to the non-Schengen area or right to the rest of the A gates and the all regional aircraft B gates. My dashQ400 would be departing from gate B09. The B gates are a nice 3-4 minute walk with great views of the apron.  The airport does offer free wifi.

Boarding began 4 minutes late at 2:09. From the gate the aircraft is a short 50 meter walk. The B gates are at ground level so you board each craft directly from just outside your gate. I was able to easily find overhead space and actually had the window seat next to me free.



Seat


Leg room was fine for such a short flight. While the aircraft was only 3 years old, the seats felt lumpy.  I am glad I didn't have a neighbor, if so then it could have gotten tight.

IFE


No power plugs or WIFI nor is it really expected for this type of route and craft. In the seatback pocket you had a safety card, duty free magazine and a rather big Luxair magazine.

Food/Beverage


Luxair provides free drinks and snacks on all flights. For this flight we were given a wafer that was called a biscuit. While odd it was tasty. I ordered a black coffee and it was up to par as well.  The cabin crew was nice and gave service with a smile.

In-Flight/Landing


Boarding was complete at 2:17 and pushback was 2:25. We had to wait a bit for take off as it was rush hour at LUX. Wheels up at 2:45 and touchdown at 3:48. We parked at a remote apron spot and were bused to T2.



Good solid flight. I like flying Lux air though pricing can be a bit steep. My next leg of this mini-European adventure will be MUC to CTA on Eurowings. See you on board!

    Thanks for this FR.
    I really like Luxair idendity and I4d love to try them but unless you're going to Luxemburg they're hard to fly on.

    The bidding starts at EUR 130. I have in the past won an upgrade for EUR 150.

    For a flight of just over an hour in a Dash 8, which I consider one of the least comfortable props out there, I think that is extremely expensive as I've had several upgrades with KLM for 30 euros to Y with 2 a 3 hour flights (to Moscow for example; https://flight-report.com/en/report/34923/klm-kl901-amsterdam-ams-moscow-svo)

    I've always wanted to try out Luxair on my own, but like you said the airline often offers steep prices on their route that I really never booked them. Thanks for sharing!

      I agree. That one time was when my father wanted to avoid sitting next to someone on a LUX-LCY flight. Luckily, next week I have a LUX-MUC flight in Business on a dash as part of a rewards ticket home. I'm excited to give it a review :).
