Why Condor 763s make a stop at SHJ on their way to BKK, CMB, MLE,...

Is it a tech or a commercial stop ?

LH used to fly FRA-BKK direct with 763s !!!

Sometimes a technical stop to refuel is required for the 767-300ER due to wind conditions, especially is the piece of metal is rather full, which is often the aim in the charter business.

However this usually mostly happens on the way Asia-Europe, not as often on the Europe-Asia segment. You'd have seen this on NG's VIE-BKK service in the times of the 767-300ER ops a few years back. And maybe also this winter according to another thread.

I guess that a stop in SHJ particularly is a sweet way to fill the machine with rather cheap jet fuel as well. A nice treat in these days of golden barrels.

Sobelair (Q7) of Belgium (now bankrupt) also had to do stops (VIE, WAW,...)once in a while on the way back from HKT or BKK when they were running 767-300ER charters there.

I want the European Union flag on airliners.net!

...another question on Condor : Where are its 753s based ? For example today, Monday, more than seven (7) aircrafts of the type are operating out of MUC to points like SSH,HRG,DJE,PFO,LCA,MLA,HER,...

Remark that DE was planning to serve DJE with A320 during Winter but it seems that demand was higher than expected and they shifted to a larger plane...good Big grin
