What it needs is for NUFC to arrange a friendly (God knows it will never be in a cup)against Bayern Munich.

With the Eurowings flight also still running, to some extent Lufthansa are competing with themselves to destinations within Germany and to some European destinations. They even depart within around 2 hours of each other.

I've just done my bit for the route though and booked a return from Berlin at Easter, for a similar price I paid for my Eurowings flight at Christmas.

About 15 rows are already fully reserved on the seat selector for the return, with 4 rows of Business Class.

Negativity about the Munich route and the football team in the space of two hours. You can tell which thread we're on!

(don't take that personally, VV and ash. It's all good stuff: we all want the North East to be successful and we get frustrated when it isn't always )

My main gripe would be the departure time.
OK to go to Munich but if travelling on then an arrival time at MUC of 16.35 plus my minimum transfer time of 2 hours (I've seen many people come to grief only allowing 1 hour on the KLM flight to AMS) then whatever flights are available after that are going to land pretty late at the destination.
OK if it is a very familiar route but not as a first time visitor.

Can anyone explain why when looking at the seating chart for the Lufthansa flights rows 19-21 and 24-25 are always taken? This is for every flight both ways

I believe it is usually to help with the trim (if it is not a full / busy flight). As well as for wheelchair / ambu-lift passengers which are often seated at the rear.

Looks like the LH is cancelled tomorrow, according to flight radar and itís not for sale on the Lufthansa website. Not a good start for only operating a few days

Connecting LH to LH at MUC or any *A except TK which is in T1, 40 minutes is way more than enough transfer time.

I agree (although I am someone who is happy to do a 45 minute Schengen>non-Schengen connection at AMS). At the end of the day is comes down to your attitude to risk and the situation you are in (I am more risk averse on family holidays than for work trips).

It depends if you have luggage or not, I suppose.
I've seen too many people's plans come to grief on 1 hour connections.
