Berlin to Miami on 15 Oct 2013

Gate & boarding

The TXL airport is very small....therefore the gates are very small and there is a security line for each gate....which is separate from all other gates. Therefore once you pass through you can't see/meet up with anyone from another gate!!!

Berlin to Prague via Munich on 3 Apr 2013

Check-in

Was able to use the separate first class checkin as star gold, located very near the lounge as well as the bus dropoff point. Agent also suggested to me if I wanted to take the earlier flight to Munich, to which I agreed. Economy passengers should just go directly to the gate where you may check in.

Berlin to Prague via Munich on 3 Apr 2013

Food & shops

Nearly all the business is before security. There is a Burger King and a Starbucks as well as some shopping, and finer restaurants. But once inside the gate, it will depend on the gate. Gate 10/11 has a Heinemann shop and a coffee place.

Berlin to Prague via Munich on 3 Apr 2013

Gate & boarding

Gates are small and can be crowded. Once you checkin and go though the gate's own security, there isn't much else aside from maybe one or two shops. Also toilets are solo or low capacity so you may want to take care of WC business before security and entering gate area.
