the lease of these two Lauda 763s will probably end early next year.
the reason why LH
doesn´t operate A343s to PHX
on the one hand is the fact that there´s almost no First Class demand so they don´t need the A343s for this leg, and on the other hand they don´t operate their leased A332s to PHX
because on this long flight, LH
crews must be granted a certain rest time. however, the ex SR
- and SN
A332s are not compatible with the moveable crew rest containers that LH
owns, so they only send the Condor-piloted 763s there (different contracts, no required crew rest).
hope that answers some questions
If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.
