The Airport Wi-Fi
World class service
Transferring flights at Munich Airport gave me an opportunity to visit the Lufthansa Business Lounge located across gate H24. This is one of the several lounges Lufthansa has at the airport. For about 4 hours of layover I had a chance to fully experience the quality of service and amenities this lounge offered. As you enter I was greeted and my credentials checked. There is a personal travel assistance for any reservation concerns. I had couple of question to the service agent and he was very polite and patient.
As you enter the lounge you’ll find plenty of seating and at the back lots of comfortable couches for more relaxed work and reading task. Food and drinks are plenty. From hot items to cold cuts, deserts, soft drinks, and hard liquor. The coffee machine makes anything. The Wi-Fi was easy to set and connect with strong signal. It was a pleasant stay and experience. Lufthansa proved to be truly one of the best.
A comment about the airport Wi-Fi connection out of the lounge and at the terminal. Munich Airport used to offer only paid internet connection. This time visiting the airport you’d see a lot of ads for the free Wi-Fi everywhere. Decided to try out and I couldn’t get online. When you connect to the free network you’re asked to fill out a form where your name and email are required along of the consent that you’ll be receiving advertising email. So basically you’ll expose your personal information to potential advertisers. This is the drawback to keep in mind.
Once again I found the airport welcoming with plenty of shopping and restaurant space. Most interesting were the sleeping pods and rest areas where you can take a nap at specifically designed area or rent a sleeping cabin (pod) at a small fee offering you a full bed.
One of the better EU airports
I have always traveled to Munich Airport while transiting between flights to and from Europe. As I fly Lufthansa as preferred airlines, and Munich Airport being one of its hub I end up at the airport often. Every time I have a nice experience. Never had trouble finding my way at the airport as signs and information are well displayed. Food options are plenty but as in every airport prices may be steep. I see that many people gave this airport a bad review on some other websites in the internet just because they had to be shuttled on a bus to and from the plane but this is about the airline and not the airport. Internet is not free at the airport and that's why I am giving it a lower rating for that. However, newspapers in German and English are available for free. Seating areas and overall cleanliness are up to par.
Airport a pleasure to be visting
Once again surprised by one of the best airports in Europe and why not in the world. Easy access to terminals. lts of dining options, very specious and modern, friendly staff are some of the things I have noticed. Defensively a choice for a next visit.
Easy to fly out
You can expect everything from this airport that in fact a modern airport has to offer. Transited via the airport to a connecting flight. It is spacious and new looking with plenty to choose for dining and shopping. You event sleep in comfort at a special rest area. The layout of the airport is simple - one long terminal. No need to worry of finding your way around. It also offers a free WiFi now as it was not the case last time I was there.
I have only one main concern. Gate departure areas and their adjacent waiting areas are grouped in sections that are separated by glass wall. So each section will contain 3 or 4 gate departure areas. These gate departure areas are not as roomy as one might expect. So I was departing at gate on a domestic flight. At the same time of my aircraft departure, the other 2 gates were also departing on other EU domestic flight. So at some point as we were all waiting to board, suddenly you find yourself pushed and shoved a lot by people trying to get to their gate of departure and all of that is because it seems these areas are really small to have as many people.
So you can imagine how noisy it can became. Well, I was not even able to hear my gate announcements at all. People looked anxious and as if they did not now or hear what the announcements were saying. Really annoying. The boarding for that reason has become a little chaotic as people wondered what class is boarding at the time.
