Lufthansa's CRJ700 Order

Thu May 10, 2001 2:28 am

Has Lufthansa received any of its CRJ700's yet? I am curious because I saw one yesterday at Dorval airport going through flight testing before delivery. It still has its Canadian registration # on it. I will be uploading photographs of it tomorrow. Would this be the first one in Lufthansa colours or are some already in service? I haven't seen any photographs of a Lufthansa CRJ700 here.

Cheers,
Felix

you could be lucky.
there is no CRJ 700 in service with LH already. i believe the first one will be delivered at the end of june, at the beginning of july, some time around then.
perhaps that´s the very first CRJ700 for LH you saw...

Thanks Daniel for the reply. I have posted two photos of it so now it's just a matter of waiting.

Cheers,

The CR7 had already been scheduled to fly as of March 25, there was a thread on this forum some time ago about the reasons for the delay.

When accepted I will mention it here as a follow-up post. The CRJ700 looks great in Lufthansa colours. Technically will this aircraft be operated by Lufthansa or Lufthansa Cityline? The aircraft has Lufthansa written only.

Cheers,
Felix
