In two weeks on October 27th Germanwings will launch it's service on a CGN-ZRH flight. The flight will leave Cologne/Bonn at 0600.
Is there anybody here who will be at the airport to see that plane take off or is there maybe even somebody here that will be on that flight?

Well, kind of both.
I always enjoy trying new airlines (and experiences) whenever possible, but I also really wanted to visit Germany too....I am only staying 1 day in Cologne. I'd love to stay longer, but unfortunately I'm still studying and cannot spend too much time flying around, or spending money in nice cafes.
Next stop will be Berlin, with AB and then maybe Munich, in the future.

Apparently nobody will get up early on a sunday morning to see the first Germanwings flight taking off. Maybe it's because there are already (at least) three A319s painted in Germanwings colours, so there's no need to get up so early to see a Germanwings A319. Of course, from a passenger's point of view it will be something special because it will be the first flight of this new airline - but from a spotter's point of view there's hardly any difference.
Capt.Picard, when coming to Munich, tell me and I'll ry to be there, too.

Anything special about their seating arrangement?
Just wondering since Easyjet made an issue of wanting a new, and I assume mor eprofitable, seating layout (and/or emergency exits?) if they were to choose the A319.
So I'm just wonder about `low-cost' airline 319s...

In addition to Muenster, Air Berlin will be flying to Nuernberg (Nuremberg in GB spelling) from November, I believe. And they've got a discount for all people under 21 - even on their cheapest fares. I nearly booked them for January, but getting from Nuremberg to Munich is a bit too much of a hassle for me. The only reason I was interested is to experience Air Berlin (with food and perhaps even inflight entertainment), and to get a chance to fly in a wingletted 737. Unfortunately, I'll probably stick to Go. (GBP 58 for a return flight, as opposed to 86 Euros + train journey)
Anyway, if German Wings ever fly STN-MUC, I'll definitely give them a try!

I will not come to CGN on Sunday, 27th because I already saw a lot of Germanwings planes at work, at least two 4U planes pass my office window every day. Since a few weeks I even pay more attention to an Airbus in Eurowings livery because they will be gone very soon.

Groobster/Sabena332: And not to forget Deutsche BA (http://www.flydba.com). Once launched by British Airways, the airline has recently changed it's strategy and is now offering low-cost flights. As far as I know, it is expected that they will join the easyjet-familiy in a year or so.
Then we have Germania Flug. An airline with a fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft who used to be a charter airline so far. They were serving popular travel destinations out of Germany. Earlier this year, Germania started low costs flights from Berlin to Cologne and Frankfurt in Germany.
I'm really wondering where that will lead to. It will be interesting to see how each of this airline is performing in the future.

What will happen to Germania Flug after Hapag Lloyd Express starts it's regular service? I know that HLX will operate with 737-700's from Germania and I doubt that they will keep on flying as two different airlines using one airlines planes.... Is that the end of Germania then?
