Help With LH 499 And 510

Fri Nov 26, 2010 5:31 pm

Flying on Monday Nov. 29 on LH 499 C MEX-FRA. I arrive in FRA on Tuesday Nov 30 and after a few meetings, I catch the LH 510 F to EZE that evening. Can someone tell me which 744s are scheduled to fly those sectors? Any other suggestions? Thanks, I appreciate it.

LH498 is 3.5hrs late leaving FRA according to the LH website. Should be leaving 17.45 local.

Thank you oly720man. How much time do you think they can make up in the air? 45 mins. to 1 hr? The schedule is to spend two hours in MEX before they turn around. Do you think they can cut time there too?

Hard to say. All the recent flights have been 11:30hrs give or take 15 minutes so I can't imagine they'll be ably to catch up the best part of an hour unless the winds are particularly favourable.

I'm not sure there's a lot to be saved in the 2hrs on the ground given the time to offload and then load up again. Is there a rush-hour at MEX? Some time may be saved if the plane isn't in a queue for departure.

And the plane is D-ABVA, from Libhomeradar.

It looks like it. Delivered in May '89. D-ABVB first flew in June 1988 but delivered Sept 1989.
