Pilots’ union Denounces Five German AIrports
According to Cockpit, Germany’s pilot union, some airports have “serious safety defects.”
The union examined German airports comparing them to a strict set of standards, and came to the conclusion that Weeze, Memmingen, Lübeck, Zweibrücken, and Friedrichshafen failed safety standards on the basis of problems like bad lighting, inadequate taxi routs, etc…
The better situated airports included Berlin Schönefeld, Düsseldorf, Leipzig/Halle, Munich, and Stuttgart.
The Die Welt newspaper article has some quotes from the failing airports in response to the Cockpit, critique that sound a lot like whining.
