Lufthansa are only doing it because Air Berlin is no more and LH haven't yet received approval to take over some of AB's flights and/or routes. That means there is very substantial demand for tickets out of and into Berlin which they aim to satisfy by operating a few daily widebody flights from Berlin to their hubs in Frankfurt and Munich.
Well sure, if you're connecting it's still more convenient to fly to MUC - but a good chunk of businessy types are going to switch to the train, that should cut into the overall ticket demand.
Are there any figures on the percentages connecting vs not? My google-fu fails me.
Went to the birthday party of a new-ish friend last night. Only knew her and her husband, but got chatting with some great people, and ended the night playing Cards Against Muggles, once the more "adulty" adults had left.
They're churchy, but the great kind that don't push their views on others, still swear, drink and have tattoos. I've known plenty of the less fun kind.
Never read/seen Harry Potter, so the references were kind of lost on me, but it was great fun none the less.
