Very interesting replies, thanks a lot.
I didn´t know that about CCIR being leased to EN. So now that she´s back the MHG-HAM flights can be switched from DH1 to D38, then the newly free DH1 can do RLG-MUC.
RE: Contact Air
Aha, so I should go to MHG myself and watch out for CCIR - never seen her so far, only COSA (on which I flew myself, btw).
The ER4 is doing SCN-THF. So the DH3 you mentioned as flying that route can be reassigned to SCN-HAM in May, when the DH1 that now serves SCN-HAM will be based at RLG.
Bundeskartellamt - ah, that could very well be the reason. Though I had understood that ruling as only applicable to those routes where the EW deal eliminated competition, i.e. MUC-DTM/PAD. Anyway, fine with me, my next Berlin flight will be from FKB instead of MHG - screw the MA-KA train ride
Thanks for the pics. I thought BOBY was repainted in Team LH colours (read it in some production list) - obviously I was wrong. That plane, btw is going to fly THF-HDF/GWT (this leg under Team LH banner, interestingly) - she is underused with only doing FKB-THF.
Anyway, thanks for all your replies, more info always appreciated. (Local patriotism, you know - and I´d really love to see MHG connected to an LH hub [MUC - what a day for a day dreamin´ boy
]). Plus I´m rather keen on that "plug in" version´s safety card, last Team LH card I don´t have yet...
