Or a 340-300. Enough of them are stored. As far as I can see there's not a single LH 343 stored. Looking further in LH group, Airfleets shows a few Swiss ones stored, but those all seem leased, so it's hard to say whether it would be viable to reactive one of those - and they might even have been s...Jump to post

I don't really see the need reason for the bureaucracy caused by section 1.g 2-4. If it's relevant information, it should be fine to post it even after the six months have passed. If it isn't, it falls under other rules (1.i for example) and should be removed anyway.Jump to post
Qantas uses a very similar scheme to Lufthansa (apart from the colours), yet it's highly respected and even considered iconic. Nobody has every accused it of looking like a LCC. With Qantas it makes sense to extend the tail colour down the fuselage, because the logo does so as well. The LH logo doe...Jump to post

Don't suppose even a magic plot-convenient .45 cal slug or two piercing the cockpit floor and zipping through the avionics bay could plausibly suffice to disable all protections... hmmm...

Very unhappy, I can't get over the visuals - I know it can't look like TOS, but then why do they have to set it at that particular point in time?

As for search, us old folk knew that the right way to search was to use Google and make sure to put airliners.net in the search field along with your topic. That's not the "right" way, that's a workaround for a broken feature that often doesn't produce the desired result either. Try findi...Jump to post
I don't. The technical issues with the old site always kept me from handing over any money - why pay to post if basic functionality isn't working?
Also, as far as I understand they stopped taking payments for first class almost a year before the relaunch.

It's basically the same as how the 717's made it to Hawaii and how they go back to the mainland for heavy maintenance -- HA strips out the cabin (mostly the seating/carpet) and there are supplemental fuel tanks in the cabin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geVpPUFuOVg I assume we're talking about t...Jump to post

Can we cut the new "Latest Additions to Airliners" element in the forums down to a single line of photos? Personally I would prefer if it just wasn't there but I suspect it is here to stay.

They will use them for a while. No problem they will pay for themselves. Plus LH have a huge 747-400 fleet and all the pilots, parts and infrastructure.

The thing about using the 738: The airline that was supposed to operate the route already has them. To operate any other plane, they'd have to find an airline willing to do it, or convince Comair to introduce another type. Both of those options sound expensive.Jump to post
It amazes me why it was even built in the first place. You already had both the A330 and the 777, with similar capacity, and better fuel efficiency..... You might want to check your timeline. The 777 was introduced several years after the A340, and an A330 built at the time airlines still bought A3...Jump to post
What a terrible idea. Public transport is more expensive and less efficient than private. I can buy a ticket on a Ryanair Jet aircraft for cheaper than a deutsche bahn train.
