Lufthansa Flight Numbers Help

Thu Sep 08, 2005 6:26 pm

Flight numbers on LH pdf online timetable are indicated as either

1. operated by LH
2. operated by DE
3. operated by partner (direct)
4. operated by partner (change aircraft)

Those operated by partner airline (indicated by black diamond icon) can either be Lufthansa Regional (which carries only LH numbers) and other codeshare partners (Star Alliance or otherwise).

For comparison, BA & UA pdf schedules clearly indicate the flight number assignment e.g. BAxxxx is operated by GB Airways (BA franchise) or Aer Lingus (codeshare) or UAxxxx is operated by Air Wisconsin (UA Express) or US Airways (codeshare).

Can anyone provide me with a list of flight number system used by Lufthansa? I'd like to know as to which flight is operated by Lufthansa Regional and which one is codeshared - there's no way of telling this as they are both grouped together as 'partners'.

Thanks in advance!


Thanks!

AFAIK is no way of really telling just by the flight number on the regional level. You can look the information up in the reservation system though.

But remember: Lufthansa tends to change operating carriers on short notice, but the flight number may remain the same. So you could end up on an entirely different aircraft.

It's making some sense now. Looking at VIE-TXL schedule :-

07.30 08.50 LH6321 DH4 0 R 1:20
08.40 09.50 LH3611 CR7 0 R 1:10
16.15 17.25 LH3613 CR7 0 R 1:10
17.40 19.00 LH6323 F70 0 R 1:20
19.30 20.40 LH3615 CR7 0 R 1:10

All marked as operated by a "partner".
So I would imagine LH63xx are operated by OS, while LH36xx by LH Regional.

Thanks Andie for the tips!

Besides Star Alliance carriers in Europe (OS, LX, SK, LO, TP, JK, BD, Adria, Croatian), does LH codeshare on any of non-alliance members? (only for Europe I mean).
