ScottB wrote:I'm not sure that's necessarily true in terms of maintaining licenses and competence; also, there are meaningful differences between the 737 Classics LH operated and the BBJs (which are 737NGs) of Privatair. It would be far more logical for LH to take on new or used ACJ319s/320s/neos.Also, a big advantage of using Privatair was that LH Group didn't have to make a long-term commitment to fleet types with very limited usefulness outside a few niche routes -- they offloaded some of that risk to Privatair in exchange for whatever margin Privatair was making over its own costs.
