Lufthansa Airbus A320neo D-AINB

Even more A320neo images now online!

A couple of month have passed since Lufthansa introduced the new Airbus A320neo (neo stands for new engine option) into regular service as the first airline worldwide. While the number of operators has grown since, it is still a very rare aircraft to see, although that will probably change in the near future with thousands of orders for this updated version waiting to be delivered! In the past weeks I have gone out and taken more and more images of Lufthansa’s new short-haul flagship. Some of them were already published in my Lufthansa Airbus A320neo gallery, but now there are even more! You will find all of them in the gallery (which … Continue reading

Airbus A320NEO – first aircraft in the air with Lufthansa

The A320 family of Airbus aircraft (including from small to big the A318, A319, A320 and A321) has been a huge success for the European aircraft manufacturer since the late 1980s. It is no wonder that some major airlines such as Lufthansa still fly the aircraft successfully – LH’s first and oldest A320 is still in service! The airline’s oldest A320 is registered D-AIPA (c/n 069) was delivered in October 1989 and it is currently the oldest frame in the whole fleet of short- and long-haul aircraft. More than 26 years after it’s delivery, Lufthansa and Airbus have reached another milestone… By the end of 2010 it was clear to … Continue reading

Lufthansa Boeing 747-8 D-ABYJ at Frankfurt Airport

Inside the Lufthansa Boeing 747-8i

On one of my recent trips, I had the pleasure of flying on-board the Boeing 747-8i – the latest jumbo jet generation! Just before the flight from Buenos Aires’s Ministro Pistarini International Airport (better known as Ezeiza International EZE/SAEZ) to Frankfurt on the longest flight in the Lufthansa network, I was able to snap a few images of the cockpit and cabin. Cockpit The first thing I always notice when entering a 747-cockpit is, how small the windows are! Of course, I am spoiled by the MD-11 and the jumbo skippers tell me it is not that bad once seated… On the other hand it is much longer than most other … Continue reading

AIRBUS Aviation Calendar 2016 – all calendars are in stock!

All calendars are in stock! The most important and best news comes first: I have received all calendars this morning, just as I got back from my last rotation to Nairobi. It had been a long and exhaustive night flight from Kenya to Frankfurt, but I could not wait and jumped right into the car to head home. The calendars had just been delivered and I was super excited and anxious to see them! I am extremely happy with the results and hope you will be as well. After sorting all the boxes, counting the calendars to make sure the right amount was delivered and doing some last-minute fixes on … Continue reading

BOEING Aviation Calendar 2016 about to be delivered!

99 years after the Boeing company was founded, I have come up with a unique BOEING Aviation Calendar 2016 in order to celebrate 100 years of Boeing next year! After designing a MD-11 calendar for the third time in a row, I felt that it was finally time to do something new. Over time I have collected a fair number of Boeing related aviation images and with the help of a few fantastic photographers I have come up with an aircraft calendar that I really love. Giving all my calendars (which includes the Airbus Aviation Calendar 2016 as well) a unified look, there have been some adjustments to previous MD-11 calendars to give them an even … Continue reading

10 day live feed – “An American journey” – Day 5 and 6

Here I am having breakfast at 9 am at Einstein Bros in one of the best metropolitan cities in America that I know. It got the greatness of New York, but it is more relaxed, more quiet and its location at the shore of Lake Michigan ensures a steady supply of fresh air. Yes, I am talking about Chicago, but you already know that I am here, because you have read yesterday’s blog post! Day 5 of “An American journey” It’s been a typical “cargo day”. I got up in the morning, showered and was just about to leave to for breakfast and shopping in order to make it back … Continue reading

10 day live feed – “An American journey” – Day 1

Today I will be starting a project that I haven’t done before – I will report from a rotation that covers four American countries in 10 days live. After every flight I will give you an update on what happened, what I did and there will be, of course, lots of photos and images so that you can see the world from my perspective. I will take you from Frankfurt to Atlanta in the United States and then further to Chicago, Mexico City, via Quito to Bogotá and then again to the states to Dallas, before I had back to Europe (first to Manchester and then Frankfurt). Day 1 of … Continue reading

Lufthansa Airbus A321-200 Cockpit at night

Approach to Cairo at night on an Airbus A321-200

It has been a while since I last sat in the cockpit of an Airbus A321, after flying the type for about three years at the beginning of my career. So I was more than happy to say hello to my colleagues on a dead-head flight to Cairo. We were flying as passengers to Egypt’s biggest city that is famous for its pyramids and location at the Nile River in order to be able to take over a cargo flight from Cairo to Frankfurt a day later. Inflight entertainment IFE The Lufthansa Airbus we were on was fully booked and passengers were able to enjoy the inflight entertainment system (IFE) … Continue reading
