Is FRA-PNQ (Pune) still being operated by a PrivatAir 737?


I'm all in favour of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with keyboards.

Indeed it is, by the 737-800

yes, Privatair HB-IIQ on behalf of Lufthansa will operate MUC-BOM over the summers rest period.

LH 488, the second daily flight MUC-EWR on which the aircraft operates till then, will be suspended.

During winterseason the 737-BBJ is sheduled for MUC-DXB and MUC-TAS OR! MUC-AUH in the moment...

Sorry if I'm nit-picking, but MUC-BOM has until now been operated using an A330-300. I actually flew BOM-MUC last Saturday in an A330 which still had a "new" smell to it, even in the lav's 

Btw, what do you think about having to fly that far, and approach in monsoon territory, with a B737? I will likely opt for FRA-BOM instead. Or, since I might go to Pune, FRA-PNQ with PrivatAir.

Did I miss a trick here?

LH doesn't operate to TAS at all (at least it hasn't for quite a few years) and only flies to AUH from FRA. Have you heard otherwise?

Regarding safety there is no difference. As long as the pilots take enough fuel witth them the 737 is as safe as the A333.

A few slightly larger bumps, a few decibels louder, maybe 15 more minutes of flight time since the 737 is a bit slower. Other than that, better onboard service, smaller lines at the airport, faster boarding, faster security, faster immigration/customs.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Sorry I didn't mention that my concern is purely about comfort. I'd have no safety issues with a 737 or 320.

At most places, I would expect this to be the case. But I wonder if a smaller aircraft will really speed up the process at BOM...  duck 

Last week it took 1½ hours from airport entry to the gate area. And that was with a *G card and I really kept the speed up Smile

True enough.

Last time I flew out of India, my passport and/or ticket was checked 9 different times by various people. Once to get in the airport, once to get to the check in line, once at check in, once at immigration counter, once at security, once in the line for boarding, once at the podium, once in the jetbridge, once on board.

Last time I flew out of the United States, my passport and/or ticket was checked twice. Once at security, once at the gate.

Flightcrews of MUC based Privatair got written infos about the new destination Taskent for the winter. Other sources inside Lufthansa MUC have Abu-Dhabi in addition to the MUC-DXB flights on the table. We will see. During these days nothing is for sure.
