Although this livery was never used on A320 before, OS came very close. When they announced the initial order for 13 A320/321 in 1990 Airbus made renderings how the planes will look like. As this was the livery at that time it looked exactly what we see now. The website MD80.com shows them on their ...Jump to post
On a recent trip I had the chance to compare one of those early birds to a brand new NEO. To be honest there was not much difference (even noise in the cabin).
LH does a good job in maintaining their aircraft...
So unless they run out of cycles there is no problem in keeping them flying.
An Austrian Aviation site wrote already in October 2016, that the sixth 777 OE-LPF would be the former N-776AM, leased from Aercap , and that it will go into service in Jan. 2018 https://www.austrianwings.info/2016/10/aua-details-zu-sechster-boeing-777/ (sorry in German only) So I would say the Aerc...Jump to post
The press release does not say that this is the 7th 777 for OS.
OS said already some month ago that they will lease one add. 777, bringing their fleet to six and that it will go into service by Jan 2018.
So the Aircap press release is just the finalization of the deal.

Boeing is writing in their press release that all 4 737-800 in the fleet have the blended winglets.

Well it is in the printed timetable...(don't know where on the web).

It is redirecting to AirBerlin because they bought 24% of "Niki", and the two airlines formed the first "low-cost" alliance. Niki Lauda can't use his name Lauda as there is still "Lauda-Air" and all rights to the name in terms of aviation belongs to this company (which is owned by Austrian Airlines)Jump to post
