That's good to hear - we are often woken late at night or early mornings by UPS flights setting up for their approach to Cologne/Bonn - speed brakes in, flaps out, in a banking curve, which together make a thunderous roar.

I never had to use drag devices to descend into CGN because of their CDA approaches and their well trained ATC issuing clearances in a timely manner to easily comply with them in order to keep noise and drag devices to a minimum. Operators are subject to stiff penalties setting off noise detectors around the airport and threat of loss of access if it continues.
