"1.000.000 Miles & More award miles for a winning idea: just as the Boeing 747 is referred to worldwide as a "œjumbo jet", we are now looking for a unique descriptor for our flagship the A380. Should you win, your suggestion will not just be the name given to one of the A380s in our fleet, but with a bit of luck it may b...ecome the name used to describe all A380s! Help us to shape the future of flying: lufthansa.com/A380"

Finally Z. can make the "WhaleJet" the generic term  .

Why not just go with the Bild Zeitung's "Airboss"? Stupid name, but "whale" established.  


Where have all the tri-jets gone...

I have a great nickname for the Lufthansa Bus, only I can never connect to the naming page. I have been trying and trying and there is no way I can go on the page. This is too bad as I think the nickname I have for the LH Bus is a winner and it would also allow a lot of advertising phrases/gimmicks going with it.

I already have the FF status but I would not mind the Million Miles, really.
This would make me a double Million Miler, I am already MM with UA and the win would make me a MM with LH.

I will definitely keep trying.

Quoting Ushermittwoch (Reply 1):
but "whale" established.

I would not say that.
It is much used here on a-net but not in the media and the public at large.
In Asia it is referred to as the "Gentle Giant" or the "Green Giant" as Airbus insists that the A380 is an environmental friendly ac.
Super Jumbo is another early nickname, while, I understand, Lufthansa personnel tend to refer to her as "Molly".

Well you might want to check with Germany's Top selling newspaper. They just had a headline article on the "Airboss" vs. the 748 just yesterday.

I chose the name MAXIMILIAN.

I know it is not overly funny or whatsoever. However it got a quite apropriate meaning, being "The Greatest".

In addition I think it will be quite relevant for LH as well (seeing how they used "bobby") to be able to use the name as a character, or the aircraft at least, in little books for childen. So "large white whale" while funny won't most probably be appropriate while used in little stories, as kids won't probably be able to identify themself with a person/aircraft (=D) called "Mayrhubers Rache" or "LH World Crane".

It also is a name common in Germany but also used oversea, so for 90% of the people using LH it won't be hard to prounce, while the meaning "the greatest" will be obvious to them.

Feel free to rate my proposal (good ratings appreciated =)))
