Excellent, this will keep solidifying LH's MXPs presence. I'll be honest with you, I was a little worried about LH's dedication to MXP now that AZ is contemplating reopening MXP routes, but looks like LH is serious about MXP.

Having been a FF on LH for years, and having flown 3 (average [at best] to absolutely horrendous) AZ flights, AZ at MXP (or anywhere) is the least of LH's worries!
I think LH should be more concerned about being effectively shut out of Linate. It would be much better for them to offer their intra-European (non-Germany) flights out of LIN than MXP, as is happening at the moment.
U2 is more of a treat than AZ at MXP.
It's also quite interesting that KM/LH offer a connection to Spain (can't remember whether it was BCN or MAD) that involves the same travel time as the connection to the same destination in Spain via an LH hub in Germany (can't remember whether it was MUC or FRA).
Having been through MXP, MUC and FRA many times, I'd much rather travel via Germany than the virtual dump that is MXP.

LIN is slot constrained and LH has a MOU to improve MXP, which has already got dedicated checkin- security lanes and gates, and in the next two years a brand new satellite....so MXP is improving, as I agree MXP was a mess as an airport for transiting. also since AZ left MXP has become a lot better. The probs at MXP was AZ, as is still the prob at LIN and FCO. SEA, the owner had invested a lot of money in the past 2-3 years to try and improve and move on from the horrendous start of MXP.
