I was wondring which hub that is LH's main A32X hub, and which that is the main 737 hub.

Is it FRA for the A32X, and MUC for the B737?

BTW: does lh still have any 733qc left?

Both the A320 and the 737 are spread all over the network. I dont think the above list is correct.

I think the A320 and 737 are deployed by the following factor

little cargo: 737
lots of cargo: A320

Nowadays hardly any air freight in continental Europe is carried on medium and short haul flights. Exception is for small express deliveries.
Most "air cargo" is hauled by road feeder services (i.e. truck transport) from customer to the airport. Here it gets unloaded, sorted and delivered to the receiver - either by the above mentioned RFS (if within most of Europe) or by plane (intercontinental destinations).

Therefore the assessment (737: little cargo, 320: lots of cargo) is unfortunately fairly wrong.

What are they planning to do with the B737? Are the phasing them out? I think it is not very efficient to have both types of plane doing the same job to be in the same fleet. However, I might be wrong saying they do the same job but this depends on how they are deployed.

320: FRA, and just recently they added MUC as base

believe or not, that´s it


If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

The B737 will stay in the fleet for some years! I'm sure they will stay for about 4 or 5 years maybe longer and than be replaced by another Aircraft not the A320 fam! LH always said they won't go with only one manifacture.

Johnnybgoode is right with his statement regarding LH bases.

As mentioned before Lufthansa will keep the 737 in it's fleet for another few years. It doesn't make any sense to replace an aircraft as soon as a newer one is on the market as the investment which is to be paid for a new a/c is so large that airlines only can make a profit on a plane (I'm not talking fleet but single plane now) after it has flown in (profit minus the paid price at manufacturer) more than what the plane price was plus the inflaction rate.

That probably also was a reason why Lufthansa sent it's 742's to MIA as it isn't such a high-yield destination but the 742's were paid off long time already so a small operational profit already is enough to bring a total profit...

And now somebody has to translate this  Big thumbs up

In fact I don't know if Lufthansa uses A320 or B737s mainly only in one hub.

I could speak from my own experience. In the last years I flew many time LH via FRA and MUC and I saw many B737s and A320 in both hubs. Off course MUC has also a lot of LH cityline planes, but the number of A320 and B737s in my opinion is the same.
On the morning MXP-MUC ,for example, some days they use B735 and some other days A319.
Also on the LIN-FRA sometime you could find an A321 and the day after a B733.
I think after 11th September LH used to change equipment very often.
