As i just read in a german newspaper Lufthansa is going to place a huge order for longhaul AND shorthaul airplanes this year! I am surprised about the shorthaul order.Did not know that so far !!!

Unfortunately the link below is only in german - nevertheless i hope it is interesting for you !

In case you want to save yourself some time, only the last sentence is really relevant to this topic.
Anyway, I guess what they're referring to as a shorthaul airplane replacement concerns LH's old A300-600 fleet. Has this already been discussed?

I believe this was already well known. LH needs a replacement for the 737 classics and that they were already engaged in increasing their long haul capabilities. I don't think this is new information?

That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

Somewhere mid-2004 LH already announced that they would place an Short-haul order in 2006....

See here, the threads of the last few weeks regarding possible LH orders (some also mention the shorthaul order)

regarding long haul also see here:

@ Columbia

Sorry, but none of the above mentioned threads are about my new topic.Only if you assume that the shorthaul-order will be the A300-600-replacement only than you are right.

By the way - one of the threads above is from me - do you really think i would start two with the same reference within two days..?

I've heard from a riliable source (VP at LH) that there is a very good chance of the 30 plane 747-8 order this year.
