Queued for 30 minutes at Bulgaria Air desk only to be told that we had been transferred to Lufthansa which departed 1 hour sooner than our original. Another 30 minutes queueing and we just made a flight. Why no message about the change though? We would have left the hotel earlier and joined the correct queue.
