Quoting Hywel (Reply 5): I'm flying FRA to LHR on the 24th August and it's scheduled to be an A300. I hope there's not an equipment change because I paid double to fly later in the day and get a chance to fly on the A300 !!
Equipment change on the A300-600... last year I was flying FRA-MAD and they swapped the A300-600 for a A340-300 - very nice!
Next Flights:LHR-BOG,BOG-GYE,MDE-BOG-PTY,PTY-BOG-CTG,SMR-BOG-LHR - all on AV

Last time I flew that route was in April/May this year, and it was on a freshly refurbished A300. Looked like brandnew inside, but it was 18 years old. I guess that the FRA-LHR route will be one of the last the LH A300 would disappear from. I´ve flown that route about twice a year at average for the past 15 years, and it was almost always a A300. (Sometimes I fly via London-City, but thats mostly a tiny Dash-8)
