From mmmx to eddf, the best experience i had flying is in this wonderful airline (flown this route many times) tankz to my new home : Germany

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 21, 2009:
I'm glad to say that Lufthansa is a true Boeing customer, being the one to save the 737, and now to continue the 747 with the 747-8, I know i probably wont however I wish one day a I could see a Lufthansa 747-8 here at MIA......

A visitor from - posted Sat March 7, 2009:
Just amazing. When aboard a aircraft in mid-flight, one tends to forget just how dynamic the aircraft must appear from the outside, and this perfectly captures the intense speed and dynamism of high altitude, cruise speed flight.

A visitor from Argentina posted Sun April 8, 2007:
I think this is a wonderful shot. All color nuances are perfectly defined, a special difficult topic to reach in the case of Lufthansa. Congratulations.

A visitor from Germany posted Sun December 17, 2006:

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 16, 2005:
Beautiful shot! There's a perfect balance of sunlight and shade here. And, this aircraft alone is gorgeous, so that's an obvious plus! Very professional. Well done! Consider showing this to Lufthansa, will you?
