The Airport Wi-Fi

I am a frequent visitor of the Munich Intl airport. For the past years the airport offered WiFi but it wasn't free. This time around while spending several hours at the airport during layover noticed the free WiFi ads at the terminals. Tried to log in. You have to agree to some terms of use and finally to the use of my user data from the Munich Airport, including an email I have to provide. So I decided not to agree to that last condition and I was not able to get online. I understand there is always a trade off for stuff that's claimed to be free but many airports around the world have completely free WiFi. It was a bit of disappointment. On the other hand, the airport is clean and very welcoming, and it is always a pleasure to visit.

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.

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.
