LH to Munich finally starts. Let's hope all the advertising by the airport has paid off.

Been planned as such for months. I think also the next few Tuesday's - quietest day of the week at the quietest time of the year.

I was on the NCL=MUC flight today. If the plane holds 138 passengers, I would say there were 110 on board (including 20 competition winners). There were quite a few passengers on the inbound fligh5 too which was encouraging.

There were a couple of speeches at the gate together and the airport had laid on a nice buffet and Buck’s Fizz. All passengers were presented with a traditional gingerbread and an inaugural flight certificate.

Sounds good. I hope they make a go of it.
How far from the airport to the city or, if you were just passing on to somewhere else what was that experience like?

Terminal 2 (mainly Star Alliance) is really modern and smart, a totally different world to Terminal 1 (most other airlines) which feels very old in comparison.

I was on my way to ARN so only stayed in the airport (which has it's own brewery by the way). However I have been to Munich a few times before, it is about 40 minutes on the train to the city centre (from memory, tickets were pretty cheap). It is a great city and brilliant for a weekend break.

Yes Stockholm Arlanda. The transfer process was fine, no bag scanning required and just a quick passport check to enter the Schengen area. I did have a short train ride to the departure gate but it took 2 minutes.

Thanks very much.
I will have to have a look at their departure board to see where they fly to.

Just another point, the prices were extremely competitive. I fly to Sweden about 15 times a year and I paid £212 on Lufthansa - BA and KLM are normally £300+ when booking a couple of weeks beforehand. NCL-MUC-ARN return was far cheaper than doing the same dates for just NCL-MUC and a one way ticket was far more than a return.

day 2 was 26, today was 60. It wonít be overnight that these things come good. Time will tell obviously but Iím confident this route will over time improve.
