Where will Lufthansa station it’s new A320ceo?

Tue Jan 01, 2019 11:55 pm

Three A320ceo (D-AIWC/D/E) are just to arrive to LH. Where will they station them? As I see, all A320SL with 180 seats are in MUC but they have ordered them to compensate the delays with neo, so maybe they will be in FRA? On the other hand, the things with NEOs go better now and they started arriving on-time.
Last flown aircrafts: A320 D-AIPL < A319 D-AIBA < E190 HB-JVL < A320 HB-IJR < A321 VP-BKQ < A321 VP-BAV < A320 HB-JLP < BCS3 HB-JCB < A319 D-AILF < A320 D-AIPM

Should be for replacement mostly, LH is still flying '89 builds in their A320 fleet that are probably in dire need of a replacement from a cycles perspective. Those are mostly MUC based, but FRA has '90 builds as well so they will likely be spread out.

Flew on D-AIPL last November. 29 1/2 years old. While the cabin was impeccable as per LH's standards, it was showing its age.

It's blown my mind that there's upto 30 year old narrow-bodies flying with LH, a little research suggests upwards of 51,000 cycles - that must be one profitable plane across its lifespan!

Well, I flew aboard D-AIPM on DME-FRA last August (it was a sudden change from D-AIUG) and it was in a good condition despite being 28,5 years old. Now it is on the hard check in AMM since 27.10 and it stays there even longer than D-AIPP used to (21.10 to 21.12)

LH keeps their fleet up to standard. Even the old 1986 737-300's looked fresh when they were retired. (D-ABXL for example)
flown: F50,F70,CR1,CR2,CR9,CS3,E75,E90,143,AR8,AR1,733,735,736,73G,738,

They may have looked fresh, but their brakes sure didn’t sound fresh. Last time I rode in one they were sqeaking madly.

Well, I trust this website more (https://sites.google.com/site/lhgroupfleet/lufthansa) as all the info there is kept up to date. On this website they update everything very slow and rarely, sometimes they even put false information.

Regarding LH flying some A320s 30 years or more, and more than 50,000 flights, thats amazing. Some people still erroneously believe that the airfame is limited to the hours and cycles that were conservatively established at EIS in the 80s. Airbus has consistently extended the life of the airframe through their ESG (extended service goal) program, which details the structural inspections and part replacements that must be accomplished.

By the way, what does LH do with the new A320s in SXF? Most of the airlines get their aircrafts directly from XFW/TLS.
