It's a PrivatAir flight on behalf of Lufthansa. They operate all Business Class-planes for Lufthansa, KLM and Swiss. Check it out: http://www.privatair.com

They also operate IAH-AMS for KL and EWR-ZRH for LX. IIRC, they're going to do some more MUC flying for LH this summer (BOS?).

It's the all-Business class service between MUC and IAD. It's run by Privatair S.a. on behalf of Lufthansa.

You could also tell that, by looking at the Flightaware record for that flight, showing that it's daily, then cross-referencing it with lufthansa.com.

Yes but why do this when you can get three good answers within 15 minutes of the original post here?  Big grin

I wouldn't call it a BBJ. Although technically the same type of plane (737-700), the Privatair planes offer your typicall business class config in a typical scheduled commercial operation, while BBJ's are private, VIP aircraft with a luxury interior and seating for no more than 8-12 people, IIRC.

They have been flying that service for several years. I thought I had seen it done with an A320 as well....

I do it frequently on KL to Amsterdam...we call it the SOS (Shell Oil Shuttle).
It's usually me---and about 40 oil execs.

Nice ride--if a bit longer than the larger aircraft...

And at the fares you guys pay...a nice profit for KL.



When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

I believe the -700 is a BBJ, while the 2 -800s are not. The two 319s are both -CJs.

You're right.....but it's not as bad as you'd think. It's a negotiated price.

Few complaints are that the seats are not fully lay flat (and they are extremely low to the floor when reclined fully)....and no AVOD....just those individual players.

BUT...crew has always been great.....and no kids!

Yes it is considered a BBJ by Boeing. The PrivatAir BBJs also have extra fuel tanks in the cargo compartment. If not mistaken the BBJ also has other equipment differences. For example, I believe the BBJ1 (using the 737-700 fuselage) uses the 737-800 wing. The BBJ2 (based on the 737-800) operated by PrivatAir for LX ZRH-EWR, and the BBJ3 (based on the 737-900ER) also have similar equipment differences from the standard 737-800/900.
