LH 744 Back At DTW

Mon Mar 04, 2002 12:21 pm

Today at DTW the Lufthansa 747-400 is back after several months of just the A340-300. I don't know if this was just a special overloaded flight today or if this will be a regular thing. Unfortunately British Airways is still only using a 767-300 and haven't gone back the the 777 or 744.

I also saw something else unusual at DTW today.

I know Apple Vacations flies A320s out of DTW, I saw one take off around 8am, but I didnt know Apple flew 757-200s there though. I saw an Apple or was it JMC 757 take off around 4:45pm on Runway 22L. All I know was that it was a 757 with the bright green tail.

in phl we normally get the 343 and 342 on occasion, is there any way to find out if the 744 would come into phl as a equipment change or something?

I have no idea about that.

I think I have only seen a 342 once at DTW and it was the one in the old Star Alliance colors. I never seen a 342 since.

The schedule shows that the equiptment is supposed to be a 343, but last summer and even for a little while after Sept 11 they were bringing in a 742 or a 744 to DTW until November or so when they went back to a 343. Must be all those Daimler Chrysler workers flying back and forth. DTW already has a flight to Germany with Northwest, then of course the Daimler bigshots fly on the A320 to nearby Pontiac.
