The airline will replace the Fokker 100 and be operated by LGW.


A very good looking aircraft, I wish Air Berlin great success with this aircraft and hope to fly on one of them soon  Smile


It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

Very nice aircraft, indeed - looks sharp in that livery.

Not meaning to derail this thread, but as I don't closely follow Q400 developments, did Bombardier ever figure out the root cause of the landing gear failures from some time back?



DingDong, honey, please answer the doorbell!

I think they did... if memory serves correctly, I think the actuators were being overhauled incorrectly.

There is a photo in the link I posted above, could not find it any picture on a.net.

Which database do you mean, there is only a.net, have not heard of any other database  Smile

Just read that Air Berlin also retired all former DBA 737-300s and the last remaining F100s on November 1st. Can anybody confirm ?

The 737-300s and the F100 would have been the oldest aircraft in Air Berlin´s fleet leaving AB/LT with a fleet of

A330-300
A330-200
A321
A320
A319

B737-800
B737-700

Q400 (operated by LGW)

A very modern fleet indeed  Smile
Any news if the fleet will be further streamlined (except for the 787-8 as A333 and A332 replacement)

Some sources insist that it´ll be DUS-STR.

But my sources tell me that at least one will be based in Karlsruhe (FKB) und serving solely Hamburg (HAM) from mid march 2009.
AB has increased the number of flights on FKB-HAM around that time from 2 daily to 4 daily flights and flight times are so that an aircraft needs to be based at FKB.
My local source from FKB confirms the switch from F100/B737/A319 to DH4. After all that´s no increase in availlable seats on that route but just offering better schedules to business travellers.



I miss the sound of rolls royce darts and speys

Wow the aircraft looks really sharp in Air Berlin colours! How many more will they get and will they only be used on regional routes?

Should have been a non-stop flight as KEF-TXL is nearly the same distance as YYR-KEF.
