Quoting Stylo777 (Thread starter): Apart from some frames going to Air Dolomiti will the remaining aircrafts put into the fleet of LH Cityline or Eurowings? Any infos yet about where they will be based and/or mainly fly from?
About that topic I hear billioins of different rumours, but nothing confirmed yet. Still a lot to discuss within LH...

Quoting Oby (Reply 4): I thought that LH had just ordered heaps of the C-series. Wouldn't that be kind of stupid to have thos two relatively same aircraft in the fleet, unless they don't go to the same airline inside LH
yes they also ordered quite a few of the CRJ1000 as they are pleased with the overall performance of the 700 and especially the 900s. These jets go to Cityline for sure as they're the biggest operator of the CRJ within the LH company.

Quoting Kaitak (Reply 2): Is Swiss getting any of the E-jets ordered by LH, or does it have its own aircraft on order?
This is a good question. SWISS has to replace sooner or later 20 AVRO RJ 100. But they only need an aircraft which is LCY certified. Are the E 190 and 195 both able to operate to LCY? I guess the CRJ are not.

Quoting Thorben (Reply 7): Me, too, and I hate that idea. More boring twins replacing magnificent quads.
As a "Geschäftsführer" you would be rather interested to bring down seatmile-cost ,maintenance cost and increase passenger-comfort..
The Embraer 190's should offer better yields to both,LX and SN ,and allow the introduction of new destinations within their respective networks.
Sure it's nice to see "exotic" aircraft ( hey-I loved my flights in the TU 134 with Syrian Air..! ) but while I have a great interest in aircraft spotting I also conceive the pressure to bring down costs.
as funny and magnificient they are they're getting older and older. Especially the ones of Eurowings going more and more tech which is a main issue (apart from the fuel consumption) to replace them with more modern, efficient and reliable planes.
Quoting Flightglobal: 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.
