Great new Airbus.

Dec 19, 2019

Newark airport was a mess! After a 9 hour flight, two more hours on the tarmac waiting for a gate to become available as they were de-icing stationed planes at the gate. Can't those planes be moved elsewhere for de-icing????

Fantastic crew. Friendly, cheerful, helpful. When my special meal wasn't boarded, they managed to serve up business class food that met the specific requirements of my diet. And all with big smiles. Loved it.

Flying from Munich to New York

Flights From Munich

Munich is both the capital and the largest city in the state of Bavaria in Germany. It's one of the favored destinations for expatriates in the world. When travelers require cheap flights from Munich, they fly out of the Franz Josef Strauss International Airport. Serviced by Aeroflot, Air France, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines among others, the airport handles more than 30 million passengers a year.

Parking at the Franz Josef Strauss International Airport

Drivers to the airport can park at the underground garages P1 to P4 for short-term parking or the multi-story car parks P5, P7 and P8 for longer stays. The cost for short-term parking is about $5 for 30 minutes and long-term about $31.50 a day.

Transportation to Munich Airport

Getting to the Munich Airport is easy thanks to the S1 connection on the Munich suburban railway. The trip from the city center to the airport takes about 45 minutes to complete. The Lufthansa Airport Bus travels from downtown Munich, taking about 40 minutes and departing every 20 minutes for the airport at a cost of $13. Taxis can also be taken to the airport, with a drop-off service available in front of Terminal 2. Taxis are metered, with costs varying according to source location.
