I flew last night on the LH1806 on a A321, MUC
, and we were only 33 passengers, 2 of them in Business. It was the lowest LF
i've ever seen. 8 of them (including myself) were connecting from DME
, on a very late arrival, so they decided to delay the departure of LH1806 as a fourth of the passengers were not yet there. We eventually left MUC
1h late, and arrived to MAD
20 mins late. Connecting in MUC
was amazing, as we were escorted from the plane in two vans to a special office of migrations and customs and security checks, and then driven to the apron where we boarded the plane on stairs. The crew was happy to close the doors, although it took 20 mins more to take off, because of luggage and, I guess, ATC congestion.
In any other given situation they'd would have rescheduled us for the next available flight, even though it included spending a night in MUC
, but well, I felt a bit disappointed by LH
, it's overall service has decreased a while. And no one seemed happy. Many of them know they might loose their jobs, and that ruins the mood of the crews, and the ambience of the flight itself.
It was so good just 18 months ago (I then flew EZE
