Hey, I was just on flightradar24.com, and there is a LH A319 flying under the flight number DLH9999 circling (at low altitude) many times around Malta (and landing and taking off). It seems to have just landed now, but it might take off again soon if it follows this pattern.
Depends what sort of deal they have with the airport. Lufthansa Flight Training used to have a subsidiary flight school called InterCockpit in Croatia, and they negotiated a contract with a yearly payment that covered all landing charges by LH Flight Training aircraft for a hefty flat yearly payment to Croatian ATC. They sent quite a few aircraft to ZAD for base training under the terms of that contract.
Public service announcement: "It's" = "it is". To indicate posession, write "its." Looks wrong, but it's correct grammar
