LH Going All Airbus (at Least In MUC)

Lufthansa will withdraw all its 737s from MUC and become all Airbus there. This is done to cut maintenance and crewing costs. It is planned that the fleet in MUC will consist of 27 A330/A340 and 40 A320 aircraft.

That is not really a surprise considering that they only have 737's and 744's in their fleet since the 737 will leave the fleet and the 744 have always been FRA-based. So there are just Airbusses left for MUC.
Well, and all the little birds from Cityline, Eurowings, Air Dolomiti and co...

It will just mean that all B737s are going to be stationed in other stations, probably will be split up towards HAM und DUS, and with the FRA 737 station will probably remain more or less the same...

Just my guess on this!

How many of those A340s will be A343 and A346? And also while on the subject how many A346 are FRA based?

I found this to be the really interesting part of the article:

Quoting Flightglobal:
and nine 50-seaters (CRJ200s/ATR 42s).

Harbarth says the last 50-seaters will leave during the 2009-10 winter timetable as 112-seat Embraer 195s are delivered. Lufthansa has 30 of the Brazilian regional jets on order, "more than two-thirds" of which are likely to be based in Munich, with the rest going to the airline's principal hub in Frankfurt.

God to see the new 195s here. When will the first be delivered?

Apart from that, I wonder which airline actually has ATR-42s based at MUC now? EN and Contact Air come to mind.



Exceptions confirm the rule.

Wasnt there a time when the following routes were operated with a 747-400:

MUC-BKK
MUC-LAX
MUC-SFO

So it looks like MUC won't be all Airbus

I believe that at least MUC-LAX did, though I think even these routes may have rotated via the outstation from FRA.

Since the B735 will leave the fleet in 2009, there will be no meaningful gain in size at the other 737-stations due to the harmonization of the MUC-based fleet.

They tried that back in 2005 as well... I was on 737 at that time and I was flying out of MUC a lot of times. Maybe this time it'll work.

The 737s fly a lot out of HAM and DUS and FRA as well.

24-10=14 (20 are delivered this far).

About time. I never cared much for the 737 family... hopefully LH will take a few 747 out of service as well, once they recieve the A380s.

The article does not say that the Embraers will be ending up with Lufthansa (mainline). IIRC, this is a major issue at the moment - whether under a collective agreement the 100+ seat Embraer can be operated by one of the Lufthansa subsidiaries/affiliates or must be operated by mainline. In the mid 1990s, there was the same drama when the 80+ seats Avro RJ85 were introduced and the unions initially blocked operation by Cityline.

We don't consider in this notice the Lufthansa flights operated by Lufthansa Cityline like BCN-MUC, right?

I remember many years ago the MUC-SFO route was flown with a 747-400 on a flight that arrived at SFO just as the SFO-FRA flight was taxiing out to Runway 28R for its flight back to FRA. I believe that LH switched to using an A340-600 on the MUC-SFO route, and the flight arrives in the late afternoon af SFO and leaves in the evening.

Aren't the 744's supposed to stay until 748's come on board?

This will be old news when LH is getting their CSeries as I think they will be mainline, too.

Yes, 744's have operated to/from MUC but there is not, and I don't think there ever was a 744 base in MUC.

That's what I heard, too. LH has the need for a plane between the A380 and the A340-600. Right now this is the 747-400 and after that it will be the 747-800.

The flightglobal article also mentions 7 x RJ85 and CRJ900 plus 23 x CRJ700 and Q400 being stationed at MUC. I thought LH Cityline had all 12 x CRJ900 at MUC and all CRJ700 at Köln, in a very streamlined operation.

Do they swap aircraft around as the market changes or has it always been this way? I counted 8 x CRJ900 at MUC some weeks ago when I landed there on a Saturday morning, including the one I was on.

I don't think that any CR700 is based at CGN. They do not have any CR7 schedules from CGN. There are quite a few at DUS in addition to the three EW ones.

I would assume that this would also mean
that some 737s will still end up flying into MUC?

I could see 737s being based elsewhere and operated by their own crew bases
still touching down and simply returning after their flights? Or are all flights to and from MUC operated by MUC crew?

Again Lufthansa mainline is going all Airbus in MUC  Smile

This does not mean Lufthansa Cityline, Lufthansa Cargo or whatever airline associated with Lufthansa, Lufthansa mainline will continue to operate Airbus and Boeing aircraft but so far no Boeings will be stationed in MUC......... Smile
