Lufthansa A340-600 Tegel 20 May 2016.

Fri Mar 06, 2020 12:26 pm

Hi,

I am trying to ID the above seen, apparently being fuelled up at Tegel on that date.

AFAIK, LH do not operate long haul from that Airport.

Is it likely to have been there for maintenance or temporary storage.

Any suggestions welcomed.

Occasionally they used to operate A346 on some flights to Munich as well as 744 to Frankfurt. Might’ve been that.

That was in late 2017 after the demise of Air Berlin.

My guess is football fans (either a charter flight or a regular one operated with something bigger than the A320 series) because the final of the DFB-Pokal was played in Berlin on 21 May.

I don't know about the 20th but on the 22nd May 2016 D-AIHD picked up the Munich soccer club from TXL after the DFB Pokal finals.

Suppose it depends how busy they were.

If things were quiet, it could have flown up on Friday/Saturday and back on Sunday.

Using two separate flights means two more cycles.
