Air Berlin will end all long Haul ops by October 15th,very sad to see a airline crumbling like this.

After a quick search I noticed that Part 2 is archieved and Part 3 leads me directly to the forums menue. So I thought why not start a new thread concerning german aviation topics. I hope it is OK.
Anyway , now the question that lead to all of the above is this. Today I was in the vicinity of FRA and of course the sky was full of planes. While watching the approaches I noticed a 4 hauler coming closer and that catched my eye. As it came nearer I was quite surprised to see it was an A 340-600 as the whole fleet is based in MUC nowadays,
First I thought maintenance but that doesn´t makes sense because they sent all the 600 to MUC for efficency and thus will likely perform maintenace there too.
Than I thought LH already moved 5 A 380s to MUC as they intent to, but google says that this will happen next year.
I checked on FR24 and all A 340-600s have scheduled flights out of MUC. Sadly I didn´t have my phone with me to directly check with FR24.
So what did it do in FRA? The airplane was already on short final, the landing gear was down and I wasn´t that far away so I am really confident it was a 600 series.
