On a slightly different but related note, in order to compete more effectively with AB
on the Hamburg route, LX
will be using an A. 319 to Hamburg from January on. However, I noticed that since the the winter schedule came in to effect today, LX
will be using a B. 737-500 from Cirrus on the route throughout November instead of the Avros!
I'm not sure though, if this is still to do with the pilot shortage in the regional fleet, which is also why Helvetic will be operating to MAN
, or if there's another reason for this.
