The airline will offer several fare classes and the lowest ones don’t offer any services such as checked luggage or even food on board. Not sure if water is provided.

Conclusion

Certainly they can fill the planes as long as they are willing to sell the seats at rock bottom prices (or dump via consolidators).

But only twice weekly schedule for the announced routes and higher prices for travelers originating outside of Cologne? Interesting to see how this will work out. At least Lufthansa has deep pockets.
