Re: European LCC

[ Read the news lately? Lol Yep, nothing regarding integrating EW back into LH as you stated. In fact, with only one AOC and less costs EW might compete with more European bases. The rest isn't surprising. That the Dashs will leave the fleet and the mess with multiple AOCs was already well known. W...

Re: European LCC

As far as I recall Eurowings’ financials didn’t improve a single bit, the contrary is the case. Also Wizzair made a €275m net profit in 2018 while Eurowings had an EBIT of €-231m. Wouldn’t call that healthy. Before 4U took over all flights beside FRA and MUC, LH made a huge loss well over 500 milli...

Re: European LCC

Wizzair, EasyJet, Vueling and Ryanair will be fine in future. Level isn’t really an airline and relatively small so I’d assume they will be ok as well. Eurowings on the other hand never made any money, neither did Germanwings really. So I wouldn’t be surprised if they will shrink or being integrate...

Re: Brussels Airlines narrowbody fleet to be rebranded as Eurowings

This was coming. Eurowings is going to be LH's "Pan-European" airline, whilst Lufthansa remains the German focused national airline. My tribal instincts dont like it, but from a business perspective its a good move. Then they should paint every Lufthansa's short haul fleet to the Eurowing...

Re: LH ready to take over DE

The sole German airline of size, yes. But not the sole airline in Germany. easyJet and Lauda/Ryanair have sizeable presence. It seems this is mainly about long-haul. Condor has 25 narrow bodies (A320/321/753) flying to holiday destinations around the med. Not somewhere LH has massive presence or a ...

Re: Why Does LH Re-Name Aircraft?

D-ABxx is obviously Boeing territory, but the D-ABQx range has a bunch of EW Dash-8s in it - presumably for "Bombardier Q-Series". I believe those regs predate the integration of those aircraft into LH's fleet, as those were previously with Air Berlin/Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter. ... The...

What's the registration?

BTW, a few of the A346s are leased, under sale and leasebacks with Japanese banks.


Which belong to the Lufthansa Group. In the end, all mainline aircrafts are owned by Lufthansa Group.

Re: EW aircraft in different kind of liveries

Most planes in 4U livery still belong to 4U. Their livery has to be the 4U one bc of some contract with the unions. 4U is part of the unioncontract between Lufthansa and the pilot's union Cockpit. It is guarantied that a certain amount of planes fly in 4U livery under the 4U AOC. For the former AB a...
