I know that Lufthansa had four or so A332s, used as stopgaps until the A333s arrived. What is their current status? Are they being retired? How many are still with LH? I saw this pic:

The caption says ex D-AIMA, which if I'm not mistaken was an LH aircraft. So to repeat my question: How many LH A332s are left? And when will they all be phased out?

Thanks,
Alex

I believe all of the LH A330-200's were second hand examples, formerly with Sabena and Swissair (Swiss).

They had five A330-200s that they got secondhand (ex-SN and SR) and recently got rid of 3 so there are only 2 left. My guess is that they will leave too when LH get more A330-300s.

How many A333s are there? And with two A332s left, they probably fly only specific routes now... don't they fly them to JFK and YYZ?

Thanks again,
Alex

I think they have four A330-300s but they are getting another 6 of them.

There was another thread recently about LH Summer 2005 schedule and you can see there where the A330-200s will be flying.

According to Airfleets.net, LH has 9 active A330's. I'm not sure how current the info is, though.

Lufthansa had 5 A330-200, 3 ex Swiss and 2 ex Sabena.
The 3 Swiss aircraft are retired and will be delivered to Bluewings.

c/n 305 D-ALEX ex D-AIMA
c/n 308 D-ARNO ex D-AIMB
c/n 312 D-ARND ex D-AIMC

The Sabena aircraft are still with Lufthansa.

hey


The A333X flies into JFK, they used to fly in the A332s.

LH currently opperates the A343s A333Xs and B744s into JFK.

I hope with there order of seven new A346s that one of those flights will be upgrated to a A346!!

What is the status of D-AIMB and D-AIMC?

Are the stored or in the paintshop or already delivered to BlueWings?

Are there already plans for D-AIMD through D-AIMG for the time after LH?

LH should get rid of them soon untill they have received all their 333s . 332s are just temporary aircrafts in their fleet .

Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

Hey DIJ,

hate to dissapoint you, but IAD hasn't seen the LH A332s for a looong time now...I think they stopped flying them in about 2-3 years ago. One thing I do know is that LH416/417 will be operated by an A333 this summer! Flight LH418/419 will continue to be operated by the B744s.Hope this helps! Smile

Never tell your girlfriend about all the 'action' you're getting at the airport - only photogs understand that.

I noticed one of the Bluewings regs: D-ALEX (That's my name!)

Question: What kind of airline is Bluewings? Scheduled or charter? And where will they fly? Europe? Asia? United States?

Thanks,
Alex

AlitaliaMD11 ,

Ever read any LH topic??

LH 346 is configured C/Y, thus would be a downgrade to JFK. A Lufthansa A340-600 will not be seen at John F Kennedy. Most Likely 3x daily 333 operation, maybe 744 F16/C80/Y234 (new config) during the summer.

YYZ currently gets a 343....I believe last winter they used 2 333 until it was replaced by 346 then later on with 343.
