DBA: New Interior But No PTVs On Their 737NGs

Just read an interesting article in the latest issue of the German news magazine "Der Spiegel" about DBA and its owner Mr. Woehrl.
It was nice to read, nothing really new though but it was a lot of different from other articles about aviation I have read over the years.
The journalist made a whole different approach of an interview.
He followed Mr. Woehrl on a convention for aircraft interiors and wrote what Woehrl did there or what he has said to his managers or the sales people at that convention while he was looking on new clothes for aircraft seats or carpets for the new 737s DBA will get in the next few years.
As one manager for example was showing him some PTVs and saying that they should get these because Lufthansa does not offer them (they must read a.net a lot at DBA  Wink ) Mr. Woehrl was neglecting it by saying that they would need to take higher fares by installing them and what people want to watch on it anyway on a 30 Min. flight, especially when the Captain is also interrupting them at least 3 times. - That was the best statement on PTVs I have ever read.  Wink
About LTU he said he wants to turn them into a "low cost" long haul airline offering that is also offering a business class with the same service as Lufthansa but for half the price.
From Duesseldorf LTU will offer direct flights to New York and Bangkok and DBA will serve as a Shuttle for LTU which also no big news but I wanted to share it anyway and wanted to recommand the article to all here that can speak German and have access to the "Spiegel" magazine.


It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

Agreed! This obsession with PTVs is unhealthy!

What about LAX, is it successful? We all know about the China flights  wink 

BTW why did they start the ill-fated China flights?

Considering LTU has been running services to LAX for some 20 years now, I'd say the service holds its own.

While it might not be year-round the seasonal service does provide capcity for the many German package tour operators, and also the individual traveller looking for a option over the normally more expensive Lufthansa offering.
