No more F check-in DUS?

While DUS has become the least attractive airport for HON and First passengers of LH and LX, the latest enhancement is, that both First and Business passenger have to use a small joint access to the check-in desks. No more separate access for F guests. This morning the line for business/first was between 15 and 18 people. So it should be recommended to plan some extra time, when checking luggage in DUS.

One quick reply from LH was, that they they were forced to give up one check-in counter in DUS to Ryanair and therefore to combine business and first check-in! Unbelievable!

I remember a few years ago, when LX check-in was started by AHS in DUS they also had canceled the first check-in for a similar reason, but they changed that back relatively quick.

First you loose the counter to another airline and after that the customer ;-)

I doubt Lufhansa first passengers will find the Ryanair experience to their tastes...

The expansion of FR into Germany is a wonderful thing. Like EZY. LH have had it too easy for far, far too long.

To paraphrase Daddy; it's going to be beautiful.

How many Lufthansa first class passengers will be flying from DUS on the few remaining Lufthansa flights to FRA and MUC each day? Can't be too many.

Well, more than enough potential in the industrial and political scene around DUS. As ex-DUS based, I have to say, I really hate that airport Luckily haven't been there for a few years...

Then you will have missed the development that Lufthansa's operation at DUS is now limited to the grand total of two routes, to MUC and FRA. Their daily overall capacity from DUS is probably less than 5.000 seats. So about how many F passengers are we talking?

I remember that. There were even days where LX only opened Y class counters!!

Well, the first class check-in was not only for F pax but also for SEN/HON flying LH. I used it many times when I used to be DUS based. It's a shame that it is no longer there. Goes in line with all the service cuts at DUS. A friend of mine, FTL and TK *G, just complained to LX last week that the SEN lounge in DUS is nowhere up to the standard one would expect. He received 4k M&M miles compensation.
