I noticed today on Flytecomm that Lufthansa has quite a few cargo flights already arrived or scheduled to arrive at DFW today. They don't normally operate this many flights, do they?

Frankfurt Lufthansa 438 02:21 PM Arrived
Frankfurt Lufthansa 8240 06:37 PM Scheduled
Mexico City Lufthansa 8241 04:04 AM Scheduled
Frankfurt Lufthansa Cargo Ag 8210 02:44 AM Arrived

I know that the 438 flight is their daily passenger flight from Frankfurt but are the other three flights normal cargo flights? Lufthansa's cargo operations to DFW saw over a 30% increase last year but I was not aware that they operated this many flights to DFW ever.

Also, I noticed that an Eva Airways 744 arrived at DFW today in late morning from Austin. Must have been diverted earlier coming in from Anchorage but did any Austin spotters catch it?

LH cargo route is FRA-DFW-MEX-DFW-FRA. I believe they operate that 2x a week and they also operate FRA-DFW-FRA also 2x a week, I'm not sure if they stop somewhere or not.

That's right on. The FRA-DFW-FRA is non stop. Both are Thu/Sun (DFW-wise anyway). Thanks to the new MEX flight we are able to catch the MD-11s arriving in the daylight for about half of the year.

I have the usual schedule posted here: http://www.dfwtower.com/viewtopic.ph...d=f4fed835baf5f2cb5d7ded17e86987cf

Oh wow, didn't notice that one. Yes lots of diversions this morning, and lots of AA cancels due to the storms that came through.
