Here is a report of a recent trip to Düsseldorf on the new LH Regional service from GLA.

No online check in from GLA but old fashioned check in was smooth and was assigned a window seat 8A.

Thanks very much for the report, I really liked all your photos! Did you do a return leg DUS-GLA as well?

I've heard a number of reports from people using this service on weekdays who reported decent loads (and a fair few in biz), but it seems its maybe been a bit quieter at weekends, so perhaps it might be better Dx6 rather than Dx4? Anyway, first month of operation with the summer to come so it should pick up.

Wrt to the stadium in your pic, I'm not sure, but someone will know!

Thank Guys.

Load was a bit lighter on the return flight .

No one in Biz on both flights.

I hope to get a report for the return sector up soonish.
