This year Lufthansa celebrates it's 50th birthday and therefore a special anniversary flight is planned. Routing will be HAM-DUS-FRA-MUC. Some rumors say that LH will paint an Airbus A 321-100 in retro colors of 1955. Is that true? Does someone have more info about this? Will it really be the A-321 D-AIRX?

Quoting Dba4U (Reply 2): The March/April issue of the "Skyliner" magazine showed up the following:
"A321-131 c/n 887 D-AIRX Lufthansa to be painted at HAM 19-29mar05 in 1955 livery"
I really hope it happens, but the source is not very reliable. Skyliner is famous for announcing rumours as "true", plus the magazine has always been full of mistakes. The current issue's registration section is once again a negative example...

Norbert, it´ll be the design on your A333. The classic one from the Starliner and the 707-430, and not the very first postwar-design from 1955 seen on the first Super Constellation. It´ll look stunning, not only because the A321 is the nearest in overall dimension to the 707.

Quoting LY7E7 (Reply 6): Quoting Ts-ior (Reply 5):
LH would paint one acft from every type
Yeah, and on the selected a/c PTVs will be installed.
The PTVs will be on selected seats only as follows: only prime numbered rows can get PTVs and no more than 3 PTVs can be in a single row. In addition, there should be at least 2 non-PTV seats between any 2 PTV seats. Hope this helps.
