I am flying from Frankfurt to Istanbul on 24. March with LH arriving Istanbul 01:40 on 25. March and aircraft type says AB6. Is than an Airbus- A 340-600 or am I only dreaming ? How about A 300-600 ? Any ideas ? OR any LH staff who can help ?

I was wondering the same thing when I booked to fly with Thai ( TG ) at the end of Summer 2005. I thought @ 1st that it was some type of PROP. Aircraft like the ATR-72. (BTW, I confuse myself sometimes)
First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

I flew this route (FRA-IST-FRA) last week. I flew an A320 (football nose) on the first flight (LH3342) and an A321 on the return (LH3343). Both flights were delayed by about 40 minutes (snow at FRA). On the FRA-IST flight, the load was around 65% with the roughly a 50/50 mix between Turks and Germans. On the return service the flight was around 90% full and the vast majority of pax seemed to be Turks. A small hot meal was served on both sectors. The landing into IST was a memorable one. We hit the runway hard and applied full reversers and brakes (most passengers had to use the seats ahead of them as support). All in all LH offer a decent service on the short trips and the delays were out of their control.
