Also coming to SYD and then onto SIN before returning to BER.

Should be departing PER around 1100 on the 15th. Then leaves SYD on the morning of the 21st, don't have an actual dep time but due in SIN mid afternoon.

Full routing of this charter is TXL-AUH-PER-SYD-SIN-TXL over the course of three weeks or so.

Do you happen to know the registration?

EDIT: Oh, and there was a thread on this about three months ago, but I can't find it in the archive. The useless search function is driving me crazy.

Public service announcement: "It's" = "it is". To indicate posession, write "its." Looks wrong, but it's correct grammar

So it's staying in PER for a few days? I might take a hike to the airport on the weekend to have a look.

Can I ask why they would park it there for an extended period of time when it could be out making money?


It's 737s, 747s and 380s. Not 737's, 747's and 380's. Learn to use the apostrophe for crying out loud.

In fact it is making money!!!
It will fly on to SYD on the 15th, on to SIN on the 21st, back in FRA on the 25th.

Thanks for the pic. Would have been nice if LH would have put a sticker of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra somewhere on the plane.

Its only been in PER since Thursday and leaves on Monday for SYD, so I wouldn't have thought it would be worth their while sending it all the way back to Europe for that short amount of time.   

Also, I'm not certain but I believe they removed seats to make room for equipment (instruments etc.) so that would also limit its usage.

That's certainly it. Ferrying the aircraft all the way back to Europe and then ferrying it (or another aircraft) back to Oz in time for the orchestra's flight to SYD would cost far more than it's worth.

Besides, LH currently has quite a bit of slack in the 744 fleet anyway because the A380s have taken over a number of core 744 routes since their introduction. The A380's engine issues have increased 744 utilisation a bit, but there's still more than enough slack in the fleet to comfortably run the charter the way it's being run.
