I'm thinking about flying STN-TXL-MUC, having about 5 hours there, then MUC-DUS-STN in the evening.

What are the views like WHILE CONNECTING (with AB) at both TXL and DUS?

Thanks a lot.

Very good views are obtainable at DUS' Terminal B (the one AB uses) - if you walk to the tip of the building, you have a good view of the runways through an untinted glass window. Likewise, both right and left terminal sides offer good views of the apron situated between A and B or B and C.

I don't know about the situation in AB's new makeshift terminal in TXL.

Shouldn't you be flying FR anyway? What gives?  Wink

Thanks, Tristar. So those views in DUS would be while in the transit area?

DUS has a nice viewing area on top of the railway station, in case the 23s are in use (most of the time), but it'd mean to leave the passenger area and take the people mover. Recommend to go during good weather only  Smile

Do AB offer through-checkin for 'connecting' flights...? I would have expected that you'll have to check in separately for both flights, given that AB is technically an LCC, but I could be wrong...

At TXL views are ok from some gates (3-7), and bad from others, but I always head for the staircase by gate 0 (how many airports have a gate 0...??!!), and go to the top there - you then have a view of just about everything, although the angle is not much good for photography.

Well, as the flights would be booked as one, i.e. STN to MUC via TXL, then I presume that you're checked-in for all flights and don't have to re-check-in.

Thanks, Rivet. But are you talking about the AB terminal, as mentioned by Tristar, or the main terminal? I'm not sure about the terminal set-up at TXL.

AB offers through-check-in for all connecting flights as long as the airport's MCT is kept.

Main terminal. Gate 0 is nice, but if you're going into the main terminal, suck up the 2 Euro fee and just go on the deck. On top of the main terminal building. Much better view.

MAP!
C is on the left, so you'll arrive there. Around Gate 15 is the entrance to the "Besucherterrace" -vistors terrace.

Thanks for your help.

Just booked STN-TXL-MUC-DUS-STN as a daytrip in August. Was only £80. I didn't book it on Airberlin.com: its fares were more expensive than on Expedia.co.uk and Flights4less.co.uk. Both STN-TXL and TXL-MUC are presently due to be by the 100, with MUC-DUS by the 733 and DUS-STN by the 73G. Boring aircraft, but at least the 100s are somewhat more exciting. I presume MUC-DUS was from DBA?

Aside from connect-through, what frills does AB offer? In-flight refreshments? Assigned seating?

Thanks.

Thanks for the correction - now I think about it, on the AB website you do book connecting flights as a single flight, so they must provide a connecting service.

Absolutely! I hadn't realised that the roof terrace is open again, it was closed for so long.

Both inflight snacks (a sandwich on international flights, sandwiches or chips/ crisps on domestic flights depending on the time of the day) and non-alcoholic drinks are included in the ticket price.
