Does LH Codeshare With Libyan Arab Airlines?

Hi guys,

Sorry to ask but since LH doesn't send me their timetables anymore, I am not up-to-date regarding their codeshare and partner airlines.

I just saw the following flights on Amadeus.net:

Sunday, September 18, 2005

Libyan Arab Airlines LN 173
Frankfurt Int'l (FRA), Frankfurt, Germany 09:15
Tripoli Int'l (TIP), Tripoli, Libyan Arab Jamahiriya 12:05
Non-stop / 320 2h50min

Lufthansa LH 4120
Frankfurt Int'l (FRA), Frankfurt, Germany Terminal 1 09:15
Tripoli Int'l (TIP), Tripoli, Libyan Arab Jamahiriya 12:05
Non-stop / 320 2h50min


Saturday, September 24, 2005

Libyan Arab Airlines LN 172
Tripoli Int'l (TIP), Tripoli, Libyan Arab Jamahiriya 13:25
Frankfurt Int'l (FRA), Frankfurt, Germany 16:35
Non-stop / 320 3h10min

Lufthansa LH 4121
Tripoli Int'l (TIP), Tripoli, Libyan Arab Jamahiriya 13:25
Frankfurt Int'l (FRA), Frankfurt, Germany Terminal 1 16:35
Non-stop / 320 3h10min


The arrival and departure times of both flights are identical and so is the equipment (A320).

Does LH now codeshare with LN or are these flights two separate flights and it is just a coincidence that the arrival and departure times of both flights are exactly the same?

Edit: Sorry, I only posted the data of the return flight, now I added the FRA-TIP flight data as well.

Why, did they take you out of their file after finding out about your identity?  Wink Or do they want to save money while directing to their crappy webpage?

I just had a look on the latter. Well, after trying to find out what they mean with all those confusing categories on lufthansa.com, I went to the partners section on konzern.lufthansa.com. No mentioning of LN (and also not of AI, though they are partners beyond M&M - maybe LH does not know or feels embarassed of admitting). Then I went to the M&M Webpage, which is even worse and more inconsistent. I thought I found them (AI is listed there, so the webmaster must have done some research), and I thought I found them. After looking closer, I revealed that it was not Syrean but

Styrian Spirit. Either they have done a mistake, or I have drunk too much vodka, but no mentioninbg of LN.

To make it short: In other words, I have no clue Big grin

Probably.  Wink

Actually did they improve their booking engine, for example: When you book a FRA-JFK flight, you can see the fares of all flights that depart on the day you want to fly, you don't have to choose the flights and click "see fare" anymore.

Anyway, they can do whatever they want with their website, I won't book a flight on them anyway.  Wink

Styrian Spirit is a LH partner airline? I didn't know that!

You drink too much booze my friend, you should stick to beer, then is the hangover on the next day not so extreme. Big grin

No problem, thanks for your research!

Vodka gives me a clearer head than beer (and I don't taste like a Brauerei the next day and don't have an uncontrolled body the next day Big grin )

Why don't they admit it on their webpage? And who operates the flight?? Probably LH due to 4xxx number

Have you ever tried to book a M&M Award online? I tried for KUL-SYD on OS, and: "Due to unavoidable circumstances..." - moreover, I doubt whether their fares they show are always the cheapest available.. I wonder whether, if not, it is possible to contact the Wettbewerbsbehoerde and find out whether the travel agents law (keyword: cheapest fare) is relevant??

OK, enuff, otherwise I will have other stupid ideas.. Big grin

So they do indeed codeshare with LN, interesting, I didn't know that they are partners.

By the way, while we are at questions about Amadeus.net: Is the new airport in THR now open? Amadeus shows:

Gulf Air GF 337
Imam Khomeini Intl (IKA), Tehran, Iran 18:20
Bahrain Int'l (BAH), Bahrain, Bahrain 18:45
Non-stop / 320


And did the IATA code change from THR to IKA?

Really?`When I drink booze you can forget me on the day after.

Actually should LN be ashamed to work together with LH, or?  Silly
