I was at LHR yesterday and I noticed two Lufthansa A340s plus another large Lufthansa widebody (either A330 or B777 - sorry it was too far away and rolling out quickly to see properly). So, my question is, does anybody know why LH operates these widebodies to LHR? Was this a one-off (although I saw at least three yesterday)?
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Must be a football charter or something. There was a huge Germany-Scotland (or teams thereof) match in the UK at the weekend, perhaps that's it? Although I would have thought STN a more likely London terminus for football charters. Maybe LH just upped capacity on their existing scheduled flights.

That could be true indeed though I know there are regulary intra-european flights with widebodies. I think SR has some A330 flight from Zurich to London. BA operates several B767 flights within Europe, ...

It's a really short range flight for an A340, but everything is possible. I wonder about the reason for an A340 to come to LHR. Normally LH would use an A300 or an A310 for this route but maybe they where short on aircrafts this day?
Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!

I checked flt. info. in SABRE, and found that LH4637/25MAR operated with A343. It normally operates with a A320. LH had 6 flts scheduled between LHR and FRA using an A310 x1 A300x2 737x1 A320 and the A343 flt.
