Im going out on a limb but the wonderfull STL-FRA flight is going to be a code share out of EWR to FRA on lufthansa. So it would be a TWA airplane going from STL to EWR and from EWR to FRA it will be a lufthansa plane. Maybe this is just going to be a short term thing or not but this is what I have read on the board in JFK and STL.
Can someone correct me or second that they have heard this please?

Sorry, I am afraid you are wrong.
As of today, TWA's NONSTOP service from St. Louis to Frankfurt is available for booking. The maiden flight is on May 1st, 2000. Check it out at http://www.twa.com

Two Mistakes....

1) (small) im pretty sure you meant May 1, 2001 as May 2000 has come and gone and TW doesn't serve FRA which brings me to my second point....

2) I don't know where your looking, but this flight hasn't been loaded into the Flight Schedules, in fact Frankfurt isn't even in the city list. It reads Fayetteville, Freeport, Fresno... No FRA!

Where are you looking?

Yes, my mistake. Of course, it's May 1, 2001.

You need to go to TWA' s booking engine and search for STL-FRA (enter cities manually) and use a travel date of May 1 or later.

The flight details are

TW 740 lv STL 2:30 pm arr FRA 6:30 am
TW 741 lv FRA 2:50 pm arr STL 5:55pm

TWA 740 and 741 are the flight numbers of the old JFK-FRA frequencies.

TWA is really planning to fly directly from STL to FRA! A former employee of my company who is running his own business now was approached by TWA to do their representation at FRA! As it seems TWA doesn´t want to start with an own station representative!

Well, someone on the Yahoo! message board suggested a plausible rotation schedule for an aircraft deplyed on the STL-FRA route:

<< Day 1-2 STL-FRA 230p-630A
Day 2 FRA-STL 250p-555p
Day 2-3 STL-LGW 730p-955a
Day 3 LGW-STL 1145A-310p
Day 3 STL-LAX 530p-743p
Day 3-4 LAX-JFK 1000p-608a
Day 4 JFK-STL 820a-1003a
Day 4 wait till 230p for the FRA flight.

Now, assuming that they use the same equipment for all of this ( they could for example easily do a swap in JFK with the inbound TLV or CAI equipment) & assuming my math is right, over 72 hours I get about 16:40 of utilization each day. I would say that's not too bad. >>

(Taken from msg # 59879 by nyc6035 http://messages.yahoo.com/bbs?.mm=FN&action=m&board=7084321&tid=twa&sid=7084321&mid=59879 )

16.4 hrs of utilization per day on average is actually excellent. TWA may also choose to have some line maintenance and/or deep cleaning done, while the aircraft is sitting in FRA. It's also likely that within a year or two, an additional flight from JFK will be added. The incoming plane from STL may then head back to New York around 10:00am, while the flight arriving from JFK around noon heads back to STL at 2:50. We will see.
