Spairliner Venture?

Thu Aug 18, 2005 3:27 pm

I know this is an agreement/joint venture between LH and AF for heavy maintenance on the A380... but does not AF get there's first before LH? Also heavy maintenance occurs home often? I'm aware the HQ will be in Hamburg what is a OPS Hub and why CDG? They have stated a 3rd carrier joining but who? Who else has the A380 in there area? What is IB going to order a few like QS? Anyways was wondering any other info on this agreement/company.

Thanks,

Yes, but what's the reason for the question? One airline will always get the plane before another one, and not starting a joint-venture just because one airline has the planes first wouldn't make sense.

More than enough airlines send their planes quite a distance away for heavy maintenance - it depends on the price.

I guess they'll be coordinating the stocks of spare parts as well as orders and, perhaps, needed deliveries of spare parts to planes needing replacement parts while away from home.

Virgin Atlantic comes to mind... but besides that, why would it have to be from the area?

Who's QS? If you're thinking of Qantas, they're QF. But, as I've mentioned, VS has A380s on order, which would make it 3 "from the region"...

How often does this occur for C & D check?
