Thats really sad.
Idiots everywhere. Airports do everything to kill aviation enthusiasm nowadays. That terrasse was always crowded.
The explanation that LH
wants to enlarge their chaotic T1A facilities sounds plausible, but nevertheless it will clutter the LH
terminal even more. For example if you have to fly to Britain you have to walk through a maze to get through to your plane. Its easily possible to walk a whole kilometer inside that bloody terminal. Ridiculous. Its more comfortable to take a cheap flight from T2
or T1C than to fly business with LH
because of these long walks they force you to.
