Air Berlin F-100s

Mon Mar 01, 2004 9:17 pm

Just tried a search and couldn't find anything here so FYI:.....
-------
From Air Berlin web site:
Air Berlin will be leasing three Germania Fokker 100 jets from March onwards for the City Shuttle routes. The aircraft will fly in Air Berlin livery. Germania pilots will be in the cockpit, while Air Berlin’s cabin staff will be looking after the passengers on board. Since Germania-Express (gexx) will be discontinuing its flights from Hamburg, Berlin and Düsseldorf to Zurich and Vienna, passengers will be able to transfer to Air Berlin. From 29th March this will also include the Munich-Vienna route, where Germania-Express has been operating two flights a day, and which has not been one of the Air Berlin routes in the past.

Actually this is much bigger news than just the leasing of a few jets. If you would know how Mr. Hunold (AB) and Mr. Bischoff (ST) used to talk about each other a few months ago, you would be totally suprised by this move.

I guess the enemy of my enemy (LH, other no frill competitors) sometime is my friend... Big grin

SW733,

Are you sure you are flying DTM-STN with AB this summer? AB has cancelled all flights on this city pair starting April 18.

Furthermore, you'll see B738 and B73G and maybe B734 on the VIE-DTM flights this summer.

Sorry.  Sad

Better check your travel planes regarding DTM-STN again!
