I had about 1 hr. to connect in MUC and decided to stop by the LH Worldshop to get a carry on bag in blue. Unfortunately they did not have that model and the clerk suggested me to go to the store outside of security. I did not want to go out and clear again when I re-entered so I went straight to the gate.

MUC is an efficient and user friendly airport and I always enjoy connecting through it. On my way to the gate I noticed several hot beverage machines at the gates where passenger can help themselves to a coffee or tea. A big thumbs up to LH for installing these drink stations and making the airport experience a bit more civil.

The gate had plenty of space to stretch out and when it was time to board, we descended through some stairs in order to catch a bus that will take us directly to the plane. I took the first bus and boarded the plane from the back. A smiling FA was positioned at the rear entry door welcoming passengers.

A few minutes later the second bus arrived and passengers finished boarding the plane. Our flight today was going to be full. Once the doors closed the seat belt sign was turned on and we taxied to the runway.

FA's went into action by handling a piece of cake followed by drinks. The cake was good and not too sweet.




The crew was really proactive and friendly, offering a second round of drinks after the distribution of the snack with beverages. Eventually we got ready for our landing at GOT and it looked like a cold and rainy day.





We had to use the stairs to disembark and be taken by bus to the terminal. Not ideal on a day like this. Once inside the terminal I made my way to the baggage claim area to retrieve my checked bag that LH refused to allow me to carry onboard due to excess weight.


Nice baggage claim area.

I got my bag but noticed later that my FR tag and a zipper to expand the bag was missing. How on earth can a zipper fall off? Thankfully my metal AF tag was still intact.

I stayed at the Landvetter Airport hotel which is a couple of meters from the terminal since I had an early morning departure the following day. The hotel was extremely convenient and very cozy. The bed in my room was one of the most comfortable that I had slept on.

Conclusion

Comfort was decent and I had a nice seatmate who attempted to make some light conversation.

The crew was friendly and proactive, which made for a more enjoyable flight.

The small snack is fine for the length of this flight and I enjoyed the cake.

We left 10 min. late and arrived 6 min. later.

    Is LH the only airline that offers hot beverage machines at the departure gates for all its passengers? How very impressive!

    Thanks for sharing.

    MUC is indeed a friendly airport to transit passengers.

    Nice spotting pictures.

    Usual LH flight with a comfortable cabin and a friendly crew. The second drinks round is a nice touch.

    See you for the next leg.

      Thanks for sharing this nice FR :)

      As Numéro_2 said, MUC is a friendly airport for transit passengers.

      LH is better than AF or SN. They use to serve something on every flights and I find this pretty nice.

      See you soon. :)

      Another boarding with a bus : MUC is on the same path than FRA

      The cake was good and not too sweet.
      To your taste but it seems to have a lot of sugar on the top

      And one more bus to disembark :( (but good marks for both aiport)

      How on earth can a zipper fall off?
      Non stop them

      Nice room but the bathroom looks like a hospital's one.

      Yummy breakfast

      See you soon for the next leg

        Another boarding with a bus : MUC is on the same path than FRA
        - I guess that is true for most Cityline flights.

        To your taste but it seems to have a lot of sugar on the top
        - Those are crumbles added for texture.

        And one more bus to disembark :( (but good marks for both aiport)
        - Both airports were easy to use and connect despite the bus transfers.

        Nice room but the bathroom looks like a hospital's one.
        - That could be a good thing for some. ;)

        Yummy breakfast
        - I enjoyed every bite. ;)

        Thank you as always.

      Thanks for this FR.

      I really enjoyed the coffe machines for everyone in MUC, too bad I couldn't find them in FRA.

      Nice flight with LH usual service.

      Thanks for sharing this next leg of your trip,

      MUC Terminal 2 is a very good terminal for flight connections and transfers with a lot of facilities.

      Pretty nice flight with classical Lufthansa service on board.

      However, it would be more correct if you specify as airline CityLine instead of Lufthansa as Cityline operates this flight (and also the inbound previous one from NCE).

      See you soon

        When I first wrote the CityLine reports I was looking for Lufthansa CityLine on the drop down menu and there was not such thing, so I used LH because the flight number has the LH prefix and the plane displays the Lufthansa name and logo. It's a personal matter but I feel more comfortable calling it LH, unless there is a new Lufthansa CityLine designation.

        MUC is so efficient that I have read of people being able to connect in a little less than 30 min. there.

        Thanks for your comments and observations.
