It's a US Airways hub, so they rely heavily on feed from US Airways flights. There's also a bit of O&D on this route I believe, as there are several German companies with interests with 150 miles of CLT.

LH flys the MUC service to connect 2 large Star Alliance hubs: MUC and CLT. During the winter it is flown 3 times a week. All other seasons it is a daily flight. There is some O&D on this flight as well since CLT has 116 German firms in Mecklenburg County.
LH has been running this flight for about 3 years now...if it wasn't living up to their performance standards they would have killed it by now. I just checked the loads for the flight leaving CLT this Wednesday and it is about 90% full. Pretty good for a midweek flight.
Charlotte is named after Queen Charlotte who was German and was from the German State of Mecklenburg.
