  • Mr Spohr, I need another one.

    Düsseldorf without JFK nonstop, that's really ridiculous and that never happened since I know my home airport, Lohausen International. Now since 40 years. Come with me and see.

    Lufthansa Lockheed Super Constellation, who was part of the Lufthansa fleet between 1955 and 1968. One of the first routes:
    Hamburg - Düsseldorf - Shannon - (Sept Iles) - New York City.

    Lohausen Intl still is the third biggest airport in Germany, established in 1927.

    I always hated the former Lufthansa CEO C. Franz because he always ignored where the 'new Lufthansa' after 1955 started again. In Köln, und nirgendwo anders.

    Mr Spohr, you once were 100% convinced of EDDL, I know that because I know where you are born.

    If, and only if you try to participate in EDDF of passenger numbers which we here create at EDDK and EDDL, you MUST be sure that the Lohausen - Rhein/Main airlift is stable,

  • Alex, I need another one..

    Valid flight numbers for this summer.

    Well. I even asked Rhein/Main Intl what they think about Basel/Mülhausen. The answer was, oh God, yes, we wrote connections to BSL, with CR9 (!), but you should always contact your airline for answers.
    Which I also did. My favorite airline of all times, the Lufthansa, submitted connections with BSL to the operators of the Rhein/Main airport website. I don't really think that somebody at FRA invented this without any source... ................
    frankfurt-airport dot com

    beginning with Saturday, July 4th 2020, these are flight numbers which I have found just in this very moment:
    LH#1202 FRA 0950 - BSL 1040 nonstop, 0h50min in the air.

    But that tiny CR9 is not the problem or at least not the first problem which I have when I try to book a flight from DUS to BSL.

    Due to the fact that BSL here at Lohausen...

  • Back on topic.

    Since the early Friday morning, I really have spent some hours to find out another way to Basel-Mülhausen. Here on my table I look at the
    Lohausen International airport summer schedule (April 2019).

    This document contains the following flight numbers:
    Eurowings # 9712 >> DUS 0715 - BSL 0840 freq 12345--
    Eurowings # 9714 >> DUS 1825 - BSL 1925 freq 12345--

    I know that here at Lohausen Intl we are not yet back at the summer schedule April 2019. Due to

    that damn disease,

    your and my summer holiday will not start that easy, at least not if you are used to aviation since 40 years.

    Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter mbH was the operator of the flights to Basel-Mülhausen, back then in April 2019. They used their
    DeHavilland Dash 8-400 turbopropeller fleet
    for the flights to Basel.

    The newest news is, since June 15th 2020 everybody here in this forum and...

  • I must be honest, I opened this topic only because of one important happening. One week after my birthday this year, aviation really stopped to exist. And I celebrated my 42nd birthday with the knowledge, my father has driven me to Lohausen International airport when I was so young that I preferred to sit in the Kinderwagen, when I was not really able to explore the third biggest airport in Germany on my own feet. Age? Younger than 3. Thus, my signature not even tells it all. Aviation enthusiast since 1980, that really comes close to the truth.

    And what is a man able to do after 40 years of aviation as a hobby? In German that would be,
    In diesem Leben bin ich wahrscheinlich zu nichts anderem mehr tauglich.

    So, now, after 40 years of aviation enthusiasm, my Lohausen International airport comes back to life again. I only know one another jetphotos senior member who could be able to celebrate a similar jubilee on his home airport. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeehaw.

  • In contrast to the threadstarter, I even was here when Delta ... hm. Let me try that in German again. Alex, you'll translate?
    Im Gegensatz zum ersten Themenbeitrag hier kenne ich diese Plattform schon bevor Delta die DL-McDonnell Douglas DC9-30 ausgeflottet hat im Jahr 2010.
    ausgeflottet, in English?

    Back to the original platform language. When Delta had the last flight of the Delta DC9-30 in the year 2010 here in this forum we also had a mourning, and one or two people opened a bottle.

    Back then, the Delta CEO already was unromantic.

    Delta DC9-30, from 1967 until 2010. 43 years, not 40, not 45, not 50, no.

    But I remember, that I opened a bottle in 2010. 43 years in the air is not really bad, for the Delta DC9-30.
    Elvis Presley died before he achieved 43 years on this planet....

  • Hm. Does somebody know when Delta inaugurated the MD-88? Ah. Wikipedia sometimes tries to hide the answers, but here it is.

    Somebody has counted that in the Delta Fleet there once had been not less than ... 120 aircraft of the type DL-MD88.
    Delta inaugurated the a/c type MD-88 in the year 1987.

    And that is what I always do not understand. Gabriel is able to understand that, but I'd say, why don't you have the last flight of an DL-MD88 not in the year 2017, or in the year 2022.
    The last flight of a DL-MD88, after 35 years in the DL fleet. That's something which even I would open a bottle upon, in the year 2022.

    Airline CEOs sometimes are so very unromantic.

    The Delta CEO is born in the year 1957. So, thirty years before the inauguration of the DL-MD88. I don't know if the Delta CEO really is unromantic. But now the last flight after... 33 years?

    What I can say is, when I became 33 years old, nobody opened a bottle...
