Re: LH ready to take over DE

LH officially announced interest to take over Condor 100%. They even are considering taking over all the TUI airlines. I only have a link in German for now: https://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/unternehmen/lufthansa-will-uebernahmeangebot-fuer-condor-abgeben-a-1266132.html You most probably mean all t...

Re: Eurowings A340

They will head back to LH. It was foreseen this way that they would only stay for the start-up of the SN-base in DUS.

Re: Eurowings in 2019

If you look at it more closely, most of these huge delays and cancellations are on the flights operated by SunExpress. American travellers like a business class so my 2 cents go to SN to operate these flights then.

Eurowings in 2019

New destinations on the long haul side?
According to German media, both LH and EW confirm that EW might start long haul operations from FRA.
As both SunExpress and Brussels Airlines already operate 330 flights for EW, which of the 2 will it be from FRA?

Even a plan to take the 330 airc...
