Could it be PrivatAir operating a codeshare?

Just a thought...

It is the PrivatAir flight.

Daily with a 737 BBJ.

Pick up a back issue of Airways/Airliners...and you will see it is very likely and real.  Smile

Just use the free thing every once in a while.

Ah, right. Totally forgot about that BBJ flight, didn't even occur to me. Been a while since I'd heard about it.

There are even some good trip reports on the flights.

Anyone information how LH these business class flights are doing ?

Loadfactors etc ...

Will LH expand BBJ service to e.g. Berlin - EWR or so ?

i believe the flight usually operates with about 35-40 out of 48 seats occupied, so i´d it´s pretty succesful.
don´t think they would introduce this on flights from TXL. it´s exclusively business class and they suspended TXL-IAD since there weren´t enough high yield pax.
but who knows, there might be additional services after all...

cheers

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

As I written in another thread, LH is quite happy with the service. Not euphoric but satisfied.
Loads range on a 65% avaerage per flight, breakeven -I was told - was slightly above 50%.
If at the beginning there were lot of no yield pax ( LH staff, friends etc) now it is real money flowing.
I use the service quite frequently and every now and then I check the manifest and there are a couple of full Y pax, several D ( restricted business class) and many C's (unrestricted Biz).
The flight is fantastic, service is well above LH standards. Four peole take constantly care of the cabin. catering is the regular C of LH but some of the crockery is from their First ( cappuccino - espresso cups, teaspoons etc).
Seat pitch is 55' ( 48 on LH), seats are the same model as BA cradle in blue leather. No IFE but the LH first class selection of personal movies through portable players.
The plane is wonderfully kept, roses in bathrooms and even the curtains are in real yellow leather.
As far as I know a lot of people love the flight and I see some "regulars" like me from time to time. Almost a cult following?
The best for me, a part from the service and the attentiveness is the fact that I feel like I am boarding my private jet. The ultimate in luxury. having only other 35 -36 people around enhances the feeling of relax and intimacy
