Lufthansa Shorthaul-order This Year!

Tue Mar 21, 2006 1:03 am

As i just read in a german newspaper Lufthansa is going to place a huge order for longhaul AND shorthaul airplanes this year! I am surprised about the shorthaul order.Did not know that so far !!!

Unfortunately the link below is only in german - nevertheless i hope it is interesting for you !

In case you want to save yourself some time, only the last sentence is really relevant to this topic.
Anyway, I guess what they're referring to as a shorthaul airplane replacement concerns LH's old A300-600 fleet. Has this already been discussed?

I believe this was already well known. LH needs a replacement for the 737 classics and that they were already engaged in increasing their long haul capabilities. I don't think this is new information?
That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

Somewhere mid-2004 LH already announced that they would place an Short-haul order in 2006....

See here, the threads of the last few weeks regarding possible LH orders (some also mention the shorthaul order)
Lufthansa Fleet Replacement (by Johnny Mar 20 2006 in Civil Aviation)

and here:

regarding long haul also see here:

It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

@ Columbia

Sorry, but none of the above mentioned threads are about my new topic.Only if you assume that the shorthaul-order will be the A300-600-replacement only than you are right.

By the way - one of the threads above is from me - do you really think i would start two with the same reference within two days..?

I've heard from a riliable source (VP at LH) that there is a very good chance of the 30 plane 747-8 order this year.

Cheers
