i hope there´s anyone who might have some info for me.

does anyone know if there´s already a Hapag-Lloyd A310 in the new colors, and if not, does anyone know when they´re scheduled to be repainted?

on a different note: i know that HF has been looking for a replacement for this aircraft for quite some while and that they haven´t found one yet. but since HF is standardizing on its fleet of 738s, they will not phase out its A310s early???? i hope they won´t.

if there´s anyone who might help me out, please do.

cheers
daniel

I saw one at FRA. Someone said it was D-AHLV, although I cannot verify that.

I can't remember where, could have been DUS, or FRA, but I have the impression that I have seen a Hapag-Lloyd A310 in the new TUI livery.

Hapag-Lloyd is not a cruise ship line, it is a cargo line. In the air though, it is a low-fare carrier.

@ Kjet12

Yes, there are some Hapag-Lloydd cruise ships, but they share only names with the airline, it is not the same company.

@ 9V-SVA

Hapag Loydd is not a low-fare but a charter carrier.

The Hapag-Lloyd is except of a handful of shares (less then 0.1%) owned by Preussag / The TUI Group.

The airline Hapag-Lloyd/HF (btw, not a low-fare airline but a charter carrier) has its main base in HAJ (Hannover) and operates a fleet of B737-400/800 and A310 so European destinations. The belong directly into the tourism branch of the TUI Group.

The cruise ship branch of Hapag-Lloyd still belongs to the "old" Hapag-Lloyd, the logistics group but is run as a seperate entity which is as good as integrated into THE WORLD of TUI. It currently operates four small but high class cruise ships, "Europa", the youngest, "Bremen", the oldest, "Hanseatic", the smallest and "Columbus", the lowest fare ship. A fifth one was planned before Sep 11th but is currently on ice as faras I know.

Other parts of the Hapag-Lloyd Group include the container shipping line which operates around 25 container ships on worldwide strings, including the "Hamburg Express", the nominal biggest container vessel of the world with a capacity of 7,200 TEU. To the logistics arm belongs a rail cargo operator as well.

Just a sidenote, I've seen D-AHLW last Sunday @ LPA and it still had the old livery.
AFAIK, the cruise ship operation belongs to Pressag like the airline. I've seen one of their ships in the port of Las Palmas last week and its funnel also had the World of TUI colors.
BTW, how many A310 does HF still have? I'd say 4, but I could be wrong. Anyone knows for sure?

HF has some of its A310s painted in the new livery !
I think the blue colour does not fit the A310 very much !!!

Slightly off topic, but few people know that HAPAG is actually an acronym: stands for Hamburg-Amerikanische Packetfahrt-Actien-Gesellschaft ("Hamburg-American Package Shipping Company, Inc.)

Uhhhh Daniel, seems that we´re having a small lesson in history! You´ve explained the HAPAG, then I do the Lloyd:

The name "Lloyd" originates from the company NDL, "Norddeutscher Lloyd" (NorthGerman Lloyd). As HAPAG it started in the business of sea transport, their homeport was Bremen/Bremerhaven, HAPAG´s was Hamburg.

HAPAG and NDL have always been in cut-throat competition in Germany and nearlyevery market they served. Fortunes shifted quickly between both companies, the "leader status" changed several times, however both lines remained on top of the world league.

Two unfortunate wars brought down the companies and in the early 70ties (?) both agreed on a merger. At that time the airline was founded to have a second business leg apart from the shipping (which was itself already splitted into container line, cruise line and bulk line). But it wasn´t the first time that both companies were involved in the aviation, they were the first ones to introduce "mail planes", starting from their big pax liner in the middle of the atlantic and both were active in the 20ties when there was a founding boom in Germany and many new airlines started.

In the late 90ties Hapag-Lloyd was aquired in a surprise move by Preussag which itself became a touristic and logistics group. The touristic part was mostly taken out of the Hapag-Lloyd group, integrated into Preussag/TUI.

Hope it helps... if you´ve questionsdon´t hesitate, I´ll try to answer them!
