Where Did All The Air Berlin Jets End Up?

Sat Nov 18, 2017 12:40 pm

Been watching some videos of LH 747-400s and A340-300/600s operating TXL-FRA and TXL-MUC since the Air Berlin shut down and TXL looks very quiet and underutilized without all the red tailed AB jets and turboprops on the ramp. Curious as to where the Air Berlin jets were moved to immediately after the shut down? I had heard SXF, but where else? 6 or 7 of the A330s are going to MH, but what about the others?

I do know that many did not go anywhere. There are still many AB colors still flying in and out of DUS. It seems only a few of the Q400s are painted white. seems like business as usual at DUS at times.

The Jets still wearing AB c/s in DUS are operating for NIKI, which isn‘t affected by the shutdown.
The A330s are mostly stored in ZRH and LDE. Also one was transferred to GIG.
I can‘t tell about the rest of the fleet. It seems that they are spreaded all over Europe (with SXF having the most).

Flew out of SXF this morning, still plenty there. Parked with a couple of Eurowings.

I forgot what a @#$%hole that airport is. They can't open BER soon enough.

So are the AB-colored aircraft flying for Niki still wearing Air Berlin titles or are they all Niki titled? And having not been to TXL since the summer, which airlines are now using the old Air Berlin terminal (the box)?

Thanks for any info you can provide.

There's one AirBerlin A332 parked in Rio de Janeiro GIG, registration D-ALPH. Latest rumour is that it will switch engines with a TPs A332 (CS-TOJ) and then it'll be parked in a desert somewhere.

What's up with all the parked Eurowings aircraft? Am I correct in assuming that they were Air Berlin aircraft operated on behalf of Eurowings? How is Eurowings/LH/Germanwings/whatever making up for the loss of service?

At least three Air Berlin A320s are parked up at Kaunas, Lithuania. There's also a Germanwings A319, D-AKNT stored there since last week.
