Drinks and snacks will be included in the Smart and Best fares. In the future, la carte drinks and snacks will be available for purchase on board with all fares.

-Can you give us a list of airports where lounge access for SENs will not be possible anymore?

A list of contract lounges to which HON and SEN will have access in Europe will be available on germanwings.com and the Miles & More media when the Best fare starts on 01/07/2013.
However, regardless of the travel class, HON and SEN will have access to LHs own Business and Senator lounges in Germany and Europe and selected lounges in Europe if they hold a Germanwings boarding card valid for the date and place of departure.

-What are the benefits of SEN and FTL regarding free checked luggage?

As a status customer, you will have to forego the increased baggage allowance including golf equipment and priority baggage, although you will be able to pay 70 extra to check in additional items of luggage. The same applies to special and oversize baggage.

Please understand that not all details concerning Germanwings have been finalized yet and that for the remaining questions I do have to do some more research. I will get back to you as soon as I know more.

Best. Maria
Dear Maria,
thanks for looking into this. A point for your management to consider - with HON miles gone for Eco segments and now HON status benefits gone as well I (and I guess many others) will easily switch over to AB and take advantage of my BA (or other OW) status for DE- EU flights in Y. Sad to see LH going down this path...and I hope they don't mess-up LX as well.
