Hello everyone! This report will cover the domestic trips from Munich to Berlin with Lufthansa. This would be the first time i flew with Lufthansa after the pandemic.


  • Munich MUC - Berlin Brandenburg BER You are here
  • Berlin Brandenburg BER - Munich MUC Coming soon

On the day of flight I arrived the airport at 16:20pm, roughly one and half hour prior to the departure.

I did the online checkin the day before and had the boarding pass already stored in the mobile phone. Since I booked with Economy light fare, the change of the seat would cost €25. This was the new rule which came into effect from 21.06.2022. Luckily I got a window seat which was really fine for me.

Since I did not have any luggage to check, I went directly through the security check in no time. BMW display as usual after security check.

I reached at the gate but the plane was not yet arrived yet. Our flight was also codeshared with TAP Air Portugal as TP7718.

At 17:46pm boarding was completed and flight time would be 55 minutes as announced. Eventually pushback started at 17:54pm. We had a full loading tonight and those who got onboard at the later stage, struggling to find a space for their suitcase. Towards the end of boarding, a young lady came and sat next to me. She was quite unlucky because another passenger behind thought the seat was not occupied and stored his hand luggage underneath the seat in front of her…

5 Minutes after takeoff, FlyNet was available. There were information about the flight time information, but no flightmap. I did not install the Flynet app, just opened it from the browser.

Almost the same time, the cabin crew was giving us the Lufthansa chocolate and some minutes later i got a bottle of water. From spring 2021, Lufthansa no longer offered free drink and snacks in economy class. Instead BOB services will be offer for flight time over one hour.

At 18:35pm, announcement from cockpit that we had left our cruising altitude and commenced the descend into Berlin Brandenburg airport.

A short review of Lufthansa's domestic flight. Cutting the free drinks and snacks is fine for such a short flight as I could imagine that this is making the cabin crew very busy, but for longer flight without drinks service, makes no difference from low cost budget airlines.

    Such a short flight so not surprised there is no time to bring out the BOB items for sale. I will commend LH for at least distributing a bottle of water and a chocolate. In comparison, most US carriers have no service at all on short flights under 1h like this, or water is just on request. Thanks for sharing!
