As capacity issues at Frankfurt Airport and a chilly relationship between Lufthansa and the airport operator bite, and in the context of an operationally problematic summer 2018, the German airline is boosting capacity dramatically at Munich, its second hub. In this summer's schedule, a large part of the push on the connecting side is via wetleased aircraft, with airlines including Sun Express, Adria, Laudamotion and airBaltic operating for Lufthansa, while SWISS is taking over some Swiss routes from the German airline.
It's no secret that I (and many others) consider the Bombardier C Series — excuse me, Airbus A220 — to be among the most comfortable narrowbodies in the sky. The spacious cabin, wide seats, big windows, massive bins, modern lavatories and quiet ambience are a real plus. That's especially true since, on this route – Munich-Lyon – the A220 is the summer replacement for the Bombardier CRJ that usually operates — and that's why I booked the flight.
