I was just surfing around the PDX homepage and noticed that todays 2:05pm arrival of LH flight 468 to Portland has been cancelled (along with the 3:50pm departure, obviously) Does anyone know why? How often does this happen? Just curious...

Hmm, well I was in Frankfurt earlier today and everything seemed normal and I didn't hear of any cancellation as of noon when my flight left. I wonder what could have caused it. It certainly wasn't weather.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I am surprised that LH even flies to PDX in the first place with SEA
up the road from there. Just doesn't seem like a logical market for
LH, but then again people are surprised that AA has a daily nonstop
from RDU to LGW, but this is mainly subsidized by Glaxo-Smith-Kline
Does LH have a similar arrangement in PDX like AA does in RDU or
is there enough feed from the QX/AS hub to justify this?

PDX gave LH a lot of incentives to fly into that city, which was better than what LH would have gotten from SEA. Plus, at SEA, there is more competition from the likes of SAS, BA and NW to Europe.

PDX has companies like Nike,Freightliner and Intel. I believe there is business traffic for this flight.

PDX has (compared to the other north american LH destinations) some weak loads so maybe they had some aircraft going tech and decided to cancel PDX instead of a high-yield route.

The LH flights are now daily (effective 2/28/05. I do not know about the weak loads-I have checked several dates for March and the only thing available on at least 5 flights for the month is 1st class or business class (3 of those are 1st class only!) and several more have just a handful of seats in coach.

probably a maint. issue, nothing to get too worried about. It's due in today at 1:55pm according to the Port of Portland website.

LH468 has been delayed in the past flying to PDX, due to a medical emergency, and diverted to KEF before continuing on.

In general, the Port of PDX offered incentives, along with pre-purchased blocks of tickets from companies in Oregon with ties to Germany. So yes, somewhat similar to the AA RDU-LGW flight in that respect.
