Reply To: LH mobile check in. Not quite right.

Back to Forum


I am now back in Mumbai and headed home in the early hours of Monday morning with LH to MAN via MUC.
Tried to check in with my mobile phone (Samsung) but LH was insistent that I require a Visa for travel to Germany (for the record, I am British).
Must be a mistake so I tried my other phone (Apple) – exactly the same issue, cannot check in without valid Visa for travel to Germany.

Very strange, so I clear all Cookies/cache etc and try again – nein – can’t get past the Visa page.
Back in my room, onto the laptop, checked in online, through to MAN in about 20 seconds with both boarding passes displayed.


Sounds like the mobile app defaulted to ‘everyone in India needs a visa to visit Germany’, but the website was able to differentiate between those who do and do not.

As to why, I’ve no cluse on that.

Have a safe trip home.
