Question About Eurowings Ops

Wed Nov 29, 2017 6:53 pm

I’ve just booked a Eurowings trip next March from MAN to MUC via CGN. When I was researching the flights the website said the MAN/CGN flight is operated by Tui (on a 737-800) and the CGN/MUC flight by an A321of Niki. I’ve now booked the flights and they’re still showing a 737-800 and A321 but they‘re now shown as operated by Eurowings. Is Eurowings going to be operating these aircraft in its own right in future and will they eventually be in Eurowings livery?

None of your flights will be operated by Eurowings. SunExpress wetleases a 737 to Eurowings, but it is in SunExpress Livery and flown by SunExpress pilots (photo below). The same thing applies for your A321 Niki Eurowings flight

Neither the Niki nor the TUI jets have EW colors yet. They will both most likely be in AB colors. Also they will not be operated by EW itself. It's not the plan of LH to fully integrate any AOC into the EW AOC. The plan is to keep it all seperate on an AOC/Company level but give the impression of a common appearance to passengers. So the airplanes will bei repainted in the long run.

Niki is an Air Berlin owned airline still operating I believe.

Why on earth has my post been moved to this forum? It’s clearly about an airline’s operations, it’s nothing to do with travel, polls or preferences.

Also, I have a EW A320 flight DUB-CGN in January operated by Air Berlin. Will that aircraft carry Air Berlin Livery or Eurowings?

Most AB birds have been painted in EW colors. It's not guaranteed, but that's what's to be expected.

It probably depends on the individual aircraft. At the end of August I flew EDI-MUC on D-ABDQ which is painted as Eurowings “Europa Park” logojet but is actually operated by Air Berlin.

Well, the EU may block the take-over of NIKI:

If LH fails to secure the take-over, you can expect major disruptions - incl. your flight, as it is supposed to be op. by. NIKI!
