LH and LO don't get along too well?

It seemed a bit odd to me how LH and LO treat each other at FRA, MUC and WAW with regards to limousine service when arriving or departing at remote position.
LH does serve LH, OS and LX flights in MUC and FRA, but not LO flights.
LO does serve OS and LO flights in WAW, but not LH flights.
Is this purely caused by commercial disagreement between both - I would be happy if they could solve it for the benefit of the customers...

Yes, I have only seen the HON limousine transfer on a LO operated flight to WAW.

i think this is ridiculous no matter what the reason for it is. not serving an airline who is an integrated M&M partner doesn't make much sense!

yeah well, maybe no one (or not enough people) bothered about it so far, and strange behavior it is indeed. How to achieve this is gonna be changed is the key and this might be to first understand why they don't like each other to come to a solution in a second "phase"

Well, I guess they wouldn't answer you: we dislike LOT but we share our mileage program with them

And if they continue to behave like that, we will oversalt the sandwiches that our LSG colleagues equip on board LOT metal

About 2 years ago LH, OS and LX started to share the check-in counters in BRU with LO. Unfortunately no staff had been added so queuing became pretty usual even at F/*G/SEN counter. Surprisingly the answer to that misery has`nt been more stuff but throwing LO out of the circle last year. Seems to be real friendship...

So people are more thirsty and drink the airline into bankruptcy? What a brilliant plan!

Well, LH doesn't serve SK very well (at FRA/MUC), according to SK crew, and I have seen this and been inconvenienced by the same!

With all due to respect, SK is not part of M&M and just part of *A. Of course, LH should treat them good but there should be a logical difference between LO (fully integrated) and SK.

I bet on the usual "but we are LH, screw you" attitude

Your LSG colleagues does not equip LOT metal any sandwiches (witch are already oversalted). LOT serves fresh snack sets prepared by their own subsidiary.
You should just try it and feel the difference...
