Part 2: Dutch-German Joint Venture, E175 And A306

Sat Jun 07, 2008 8:06 am

A Dutch-German Joint-Venture: Five legs around FRA


Hello, dear readers,

earlier in the year, fellow A.netter Airbuseric and me decided to go for a day of flying together.
After some searching through our personal calendars and also the timetables, we´ve secured an
tight schedule with some interesting aircraft.
Let´s see whats waiting at the gates!.


1.)
Tuesday, 03.06.2008
STR (Stuttgart-Echterdingen) - FRA (Frankfurt-Rhein-Main)
Duration: 25 minutes

Service LH 1351 operated by Cirrus Airlines Embraer 175 D-ALIB
Scheduled: 06.00 // 06.50
Actual: 07.05 // 07.30
Gate: 161 Seat: 20F
Load factor: Around 80 %
Fare: 43,28 EUR per leg

History:
29.05.2003: Demonstrator for Embraer
07.12.2006: Further to Air Caraibes
12.01.2008: In service with Cirrus Airlines
The first new entry today, leg no. 1 on the EMB 175

Tuesday was day one after terrible thunderstorms in southwestern Germany.
FRA faces lots of delays and cancellations on Monday, STR was temporary closed in the afternoon.
I´ve checked in for four of the five flights the next day at Monday evening, immediatelly after Eric mailed me his seats of choice.
No problem and done online within minutes.
Later I´ve noticed that the last FRA-STR flight, usually the aircraft for the first STR-FRA leg, the next day was cancelled.
Also leg no. 5 was not possible to check in, so I´ve called the LH helpdesk, where the guy was surprised that I know the
in and outbound plane operations. But nevertheless he stated that my flight was ok in the systems, also leg five seems ok.
When I´ve checked STR operations Tuesday morning, I saw that my flight was ok, but the 7.00 am to FRA was cancelled.
So it seems my machine was in STR since Monday afternoon and goes not for STR-FRA-STR earlier.
At the airport around 5 am, boarding was announced for 05.35 am. No time to wait at security and at the gate, the usual bus operations
from Terminal 1, ground floor, 15 minutes prior to boarding.
The screens showed some 15 minutes delay, but boarding started nearly ontime.

Welcome to a new type for my log:

Boarding D-ALIB at STR:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08003.jpg

Two female FA's, one more, one less friendly.
The captain welcomed us short thereafter and informed us that we had to wait for rebooked pax from the cancelled 7.00 am service.
Later again, after some more pax arrived, that we had to wait for a new load sheet. That means sit and wait.
This machine was fitted with bright grey leather seats, legroom and comfort was good, but it was slightly dirty.
Finally we departed STR from runway 25 in direction Ludwigsburg and Heilbronn. No flightlevel information, no service on this leg.
Arrival on FRA´s runway 25L, only a short way to taxi to our stand in front of the LH cargo area.

And deboarding at FRA:

Bye-Bye Cirrus:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08005.jpg

By bus to the terminal, time enough for some spotting at "my place", the last gate of the A area.

Namibia A 340 passing by:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08006.jpg

According to OPS, I will see that plane again later in the day:

Handle with care, Airliners inside:

AMS arrival passing by:

Checking the OPS screen was also quickly done, to see whats going on with the further flights.



2.)
Tuesday, 03.06.2008
FRA (Frankfurt-Rhein-Main) - TXL (Berlin-Tegel)
Duration: 45 minutes

Service LH 176 operated by Lufthansa Airbus A321 D-AIRX
Scheduled: 10.15 // 11.20
Actual: 10.40 // 11.40
Gate: A26 Seat: 36F
Load factor: 100%

History:
01.10.1998: Delivered to LH
Leg no. 13 on the A321 and the first on this machine

The reason to book this flight was simply to catch the Airbus 300-600, we dont know how long LH will operate this plane.
But finally no A306 on this leg, a downgrade to the A321 was announced some weeks ahead.
I´ve picked up Eric at the inbound gate from AMS, his flight was delayed due to some tech problems with the used A320, but
in the end we´ve had 15 minutes till boarding for TXL. The gate to TXL was only some meters beneath.
Also a delay on this flight. A nice surprise was the retro plane. I´ve dont mentioned that D-AIRX was this special one,
but Eric knows and finally it parked at our gate.

Is this Lufthansa?:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08012.jpg

Taxi:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08013.jpg

Parked
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08015.jpg

Tail comparison:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08016.jpg

Some compensation for the missed A306.
Boarding was called and with the self boarding system, we´re around the first pax to board for TXL.
The flight was fully booked, with some 20
pax on the waiting list. I´ve wished Eric a good flight, he takes the window on the other side of the plane.
See you in Berlin!.
Three female, one male FA on this service. Much more friendly than on the earlier Cirrus leg.
The cabin fitted with dark grey leather seats, lower legroom than on the E75. The cabin not in the best conditions.
A friendly welcome from the captain with informations around the delay.
Earlier in the morning there was an A340 with undercarriage problems in FRA and therefore an emergency landing.One runway was blocked for 20 minutes to tow away the plane.
Single inbound operations during the first morning rush caused to delay the machines earlier flight to CDG and finally the delay for TXL.
An unusually departure from runway 25L followed, the first time for me at FRA.
The FO informed us later shortly with weather details and the flightlevel, 29000 feet. No route information.

That seems like LEJ:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08017.jpg

And again:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08018.jpg

Free drinks on service.
Much better wheather conditions in eastern direction, arrival on TXL´s runway 08L.

Dry like spain, but its really TXL:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08020.jpg

Finger deboarding, some walking around and further to the next one.

5.)
Tuesday, 03.06.2008
FRA (Frankfurt-Rhein-Main) - STR (Stuttgart-Echterdingen)
Duration: 20 minutes

Service LH 1358 operated by Lufthansa Airbus A321 D-AIRM
Scheduled: 20.25 // 21.05
Actual: 20.40 // 21.00
Gate: A13 Seat: 30F
Load factor: Around 40 %

History:
06.02.1995: Delivered to LH
Leg no. 14 on the A321 and the second on this machine

After some pix from the great A300-600 we´ve decided to hop by the Skyline to Terminal 2 for a view from the deck.
Not that much action, but nevertheless some interesting aircraft there.

TAM and Air Astana:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08040.jpg

Finally it was time for Eric to check security again, no other pax infront at T1A skyline station.
We´ve said goodbye, I´ve wished Eric a nice flight back to AMS, on a well known airccraft according to OPS,
headed for an hour or two to the city center and was back at the airport at around 7 pm.
Once again no one in front at T1A skyline security check, always my place when I´ve go from T1A.
I´ve walked again to the end of the A gates, ready to view my plane arriving from CDG some minutes ahead to schedule.

Just arrived, D-AIRM:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08041.jpg

Back to the gate, where a large group of asian tourists waited, maybe the reason for the plane upgrade.
Earlier scheduled was an CRJ700, not a small difference.

In the distance:

Close up:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08043.jpg

Boarding was called a bit late.
Four females on that machine, all together friendly.
Also bright grey leather seats on this plane, the lower legroom on the A321 beneath the A320 or the A306 was clearly remarkable.
The cabin itself was clean. Departure from runway 18.
No service, absolutely no comment from the flightdeck, so, no route or level information.
Good evening views and finally touched down after the famous "Weidacher Höhe" approach on STR´s runway 07.
A fast taxi and deboarding by a finger into T1.

And finally arrived in STR:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/FRA08/FRA08044.jpg

So, what about my thoughts around these day.
LH operates interesting aircraft, not always, but with some searching an interesting schedule seems possible.
The fare itself was acceptable, delays, yes, but on the "no problem" flights.
Friendly staff, especially on the FRA-TXL leg.
So, all together a great day of flying around and aircaft enthusiastic conversation with fellow A.netter Airbuseric,
two new types and four new planes to my log, not bad from my point of view.

Comments welcome,
Markus (FLIEGER67)

Nice addition to Eric's report which I have just read.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):

Service LH 1351 operated by Cirrus Airlines Embraer 175 D-ALIB

Last time we talked about it, now you really got it. The E175 is still a very rare bird in Europe, in service only with Cirrus (1) and LOT (6 + 12 on order).

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

thanx for your reply.

Quoting PlaneHunter (Reply 1):

I was worried about not to catch it with the cancellation the day earlier.
But finally loged, yeah!.

Hi Markus,

thanks for this good addition to the other tripreport. I'm getting jealous on you, with the Embraer 170 and now 175 running frequently out of STR  Wink This type is hard to catch for me, and still missing. So, time for another visit to Germany, with a good schedule to include some more interesting aircraft  Wink

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
the lower legroom on the A321 beneath the A320 or the A306 was clearly remarkable.

The A321 is indeed of much less comfort then LH's other aircraft.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
No service, absolutely no comment from the flightdeck, so, no route or level information.

My return flight also wasn't very good, although I still got a decend meal and my beer  drunk 

Gruß
Eric

Hi Markus!

Again a nice story with interesting pics. Good idea to make a joint venture with Eric. I think flying with an aviation enthusiast is much fun, isn't it? I have never experienced it. I got used to fly alone. When I fly with friends they are a bit bewildered about me, beginning with booking the flights and strolling around at airports Big grin

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Yeah, the second new entry today, leg no. 1 on the A300-600

Congratulations! I love this type of aircraft. LH has 14 A306 in their fleet. I have already 9 of them in my log, but D-AIAL is still missing.

Thanks for sharing!

Cheers,
Stefan

Me too.
Nine from possible 14, real good.
D-AIAX was scheduled according to OPS, but finally it was D-AIAL.
Three more A306 leg´s booked the next two months, we will see what show´s up.

Hey Markus ,
Excellent report to add to Erics. The photos are great. Seeing the interior shots of the A300 makes me want to go on one ASAP. I see LH use them, FRA-BCN so there is a chance for me maybe this Summer.

Great idea to spend the day flying together. Looks like fun.

Thanks for the great report

Don´t noticed it, that they operate BCN also with the A306, sounds like a good idea.

Nice little read and pictures, look's like a pretty nice day out.

But finally no A306 on this leg, a downgrade to the A321 was announced some weeks ahead

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
I´ve wished Eric a good flight, he takes the window on the other side of the plane

Hi Markus,

great report! After having already read Eric's report, it was interesting to read about the same flights from your point of view as well.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
So it seems my machine was in STR since Monday afternoon and goes not for STR-FRA-STR earlier.

By coincidence I have checked the Stuttgart Airport schedule on that day. D-ALIB was on a scheduled service from MRS to FRA on Monday evening, but due to bad weather at FRA, the flight got diverted to STR. So they just left the aircraft there and found an other possibility to get the passengers to FRA (probably on a scheduled STR-FRA service).

Regards
Christoph

Hi Markus,

2 new types, the retrojet combined with a good travel companion. It must have been a great day! Not too much on the sighseeing, but the purpose was clear.
Score the AB6  Smile Luckily you did have one!
I was surprised by the fact that it had a refurbished interior, something I thought that LH was not going to do on the AB6's.

Also I'm glad that you both spotted legroom difference on the 321, I was already thinking I was the only one who spotted it  Smile

Also D-AIRX is a very nice bird to have covered in the log, here I envy you!!


Thanks for sharing and viele grüsse,

Hola Markus!

I must admit I was shocked to see you were flying only around Germany, Gott seid dank! it is a big country, imagine doing the same thing in Switzerland or Austria  bouncy . Maybe you could catch some of the football games from above  Wink

BTW, I got to see the retro LH Airbus, D-AIRX, at FRA as well last Christmas when I was there, a really nice plane and very well-done retro look.

Last time I flew the A300-600 was on a flight from BCN to FRA two summers ago. They seem to use them quite often in this particular route due to high-summer yields I guess.

Salut!

Hello, Joost,

thanx for another nice reply.

2 new types, the retrojet combined with a good travel companion. It must have been a great day!

For sure, it was

I was surprised by the fact that it had a refurbished interior, something I thought that LH was not going to do on the AB6's.

It might be a difference between that European configuration and also the ABA planes used on the flights to Africa and the Middle East.

Quoting DALCE (Reply 13):
Also I'm glad that you both spotted legroom difference on the 321, I was already thinking I was the only one who spotted it

You´re not the only one, it was clearly remarkable

Also D-AIRX is a very nice bird to have covered in the log,

I must admit I was shocked to see you were flying only around Germany, Gott seid dank! it is a big country, imagine doing the same thing in Switzerland or Austria . Maybe you could catch some of the football games from above

Hey, sounds like a good idea for football-public viewing
But, for sure, there is still something more less covered interesting in Germany

BTW, I got to see the retro LH Airbus, D-AIRX, at FRA as well last Christmas when I was there, a really nice plane and very well-done retro look.

I saw it also once in Stuttgart and thought, that will be nice plane to fly on!

Quoting Rogerbcn (Reply 14):
Last time I flew the A300-600 was on a flight from BCN to FRA two summers ago. They seem to use them quite often in this particular route due to high-summer yields I guess.

Dont noticed it, but it seems so, also this summer.

Best regards,
