For some connections you can wait a little longer, thats true, but for most connection the transfer time is pretty good. (I only checked India -> US though)
The flights from India arrive between 7:30 and 9:00 and the LH flights to the US leave between 10:00 and 14:00
So if you want to fly to DEN, TPA, EWR, BOS or book the late flights you don't have to wait that long.
You forgot ot check the other direction: USA>India.
With the exception of when/where they have 2x daily, flights from the U.S. generally arrive in FRA early in the morning (5-6am) and flight to India all depart in the afternoon. This is one of the main reasons why connecting in DXB or LHR is preferable.
Yeah, not really. While building a 3rd runway would be considered future proofing the airport, at the moment the two runways are fine. They are increasing aircraft size as MUC is the better transit airport and to up the pressure on FRA.
Some people here need a reality check.
The airport was planned from day 1 to have 3 runways. That was future proofing. It needs that 3rd runway now.https://blog.adbsafegate.com/munich-air ... structure/
"The current two-runway system is already operating at full capacity during peak hours, and requests for additional slots from airlines have been declined."
That was 3 years ago.
There's a reason why you're not seeing LCC fly TATL from MUC. It's because they can't get slots. Lack of LCC's means fares stay artificially high and of course that benefits LH. But it hurts the local market.
LH as the largest operator at MUC and a partial owner has some flexibility in what it can do to mitigate the slots restrictions. Much like what BA is doing at LHR.
MUC and LHR aren't really that different with the exception that LHR has reached its peak capacity many years ago. MUC is on the same exact path as LHR.
