Condor 747-400 And 747-100 Questions

I just love the classic logo/livery of Condor Flugdienst especially on the 747s.

Condor 747-400 question: I know for a fact that it was a Lufthansa incognito used by LH for the FRA to TPE flights in the 90s to appease the political eyebrow raisings between Beijing and Taipei. Anybody knows if it was also used by Condor on its charter flights? If so, what routings and year/decade of service?

Condor 747-100 question: Anybody knows what routings/flights in the early 70s? What year did the Condor 741 stop service and what were the routings then?

Was there a Condor 747-200? What routings?

I will also appreciate if someone posts pix of Condor 744 and 741 in this thread to appreciate its beauty!

Thanks for all the info.

Do you mean "other pics than available on A.net" ?
If NO, see:

Condor did not operate the 747-100, but two early-built 747-230Bs (D-ABYF delivered still with the old 3-window upperdeck, but later converted), which were sold off in 1979 to Korean Air. D-ABYH was the other and was in fact the aircraft, which was shot down by Soviet fighters over Sachalin in 1983.

Condor sold them because they proved to be too big for all-year-round operation and were replaced with DC-10s, which were flown in a natural metal scheme.

Just on LH flights with LH cockpit and cabin crew.

DE only operated B742's, their own were powered with JT9D's:

They also leased a LH B742 with CF-6 engines for a short time:

Service ended in 1979/80. Routes were long-hauls (ABC flights to North America, the Carribean, East Africa and Sri Lanka/ Thailand), as well as the odd rotation to the Canaries and the Mediteranean.

I would be very surprised if this photo has not been taken at FRA.

I can remember when visiting Corfu, that in the typical tourist guides there were pictures of a Condor 747 at the airport there....

No pictures of 747s at CFU in the database though....



I don't like signatures...

Delta, if you´re sure on that, you positively should initiate a change of the pic´s description in the database by clicking on "Correct information".

Thanks everyone for sharing excellent info. I thought it was a 741 with the "3-windows in the upper deck" but itwas indeed an older version of the 742. Thanks to HT for providing all the pix----the one that stopped in CMB on its way to BKK was the one I remembered on seeing it from older pix that I thought it was a 741 (based on the 3-window upper deck as opposed to 10 in most 742s).

I did e-mailed Jordi (the one who posted a faux Girona background) and he said
: "he made a mistake by posting Girona but the actual background was FRA for the 744. However, he mentioned that Condor 742s used to fly charters to Girona in the early years (70s)".
I suggest someone from A.net tech staff change the caption of the 744 photo from Girona to FRA.

Cheers,
Air Am

Somebody must have hit the button "Correct information" for the pic in question (which is the established way to submit corrections), as it now shows "Frankfurt"  Wink
