Well, what about YYZ or GRU? Last year I read an interview of LH CEO for Latin America and he said that BOG was the most rewarding market in the region and because of that they upgrade their flight from an a343 to the biggest aircraft available a346. So it would make sense to send the 748 to BOG an...Jump to post
Currently TF-FXB , a 19 y/o De Havilland Canada Dash 8 Q400 is flying KEF-MAN as flight FI 440. 1.669 km / 1.037 miles = 2:15 h. Alternately they use this bird on KEF-DUB as well. Cause? Lack of planes, low densitiy route? I think it must one of the last adventures and challenges to do such flights...Jump to post

Thing is its a game changer for LH as it will allow them to do BER, HAM and DUS transatlantic with a right-sized aircraft. It is pretty compelling for them. It will also allow them to lift more cargo and bags than their A321 and open up new West Africa routes that their A333 is too big for. It does...Jump to post
DAIPA (MSN0069, built 1989) just on her last flight for LH after 29 years! She left Frankfurt for a roundtrip to HAM and made some circles over XFW where she was "Born".

One of the shortest domestic flights I have ever taken was PPT-MOZ, 5-7 minutes flight on an ATR 42.

The bad thing with this thread is, that people can keep dreaming for a year about LH buying the MAX, with endless posts how nice that would be. IMO all this posters will have to swallow that LH will buy more A320neo family frames in about a year. Agree 100 % !! There is no really serious reason for...Jump to post

Weird concept, but I hope they will prosper, and wish them all the best.

In Icelandic media I couldn't find any Information about the level of capacity at that flight - and the return flight. Anybody has some informations about that?
Just saw that yesterday they already used their A 321neo TF-DTR on this route and even this plane made a technical stop at YEG (I guess for refuelling). DTR will soon be back on her way to KEF...
Dead ones live longer…. ;) WOW Air again is just flying long range with A 321 TF-CAT. This is no "neo". In the past they sometimes used TF-SKY, A 321neo for this route and in most times he did it nonstop.

You guys in SAN get the next LH A 340-600 today. D-AIHD just departed FRA to SAN, flight time is calculated with 11 h and 20 min, ETA 12:50 pm (hope it will fly nonstop this time and not make a stop-.over at LAS again)

What is that for a kind of flight? New charter flight? Or is the plane chartered out? Currently WOW Air's "MOM" ( A 321 TF-MOM) is on the way to HAV.
LH used their 313 in their last operating Time only on very short but much frequented routes like HAM-FRA or TXL-FRA. As far as I know LH never flew TATL with their 313.Jump to post
