Lufthansa flights to Düsseldorf take off from Glasgow

German airline Lufthansa flew its inaugural Glasgow International Airport to Düsseldorf service on April 8, with political and business leaders turning out to support the new link and representatives from Glasgow Chamber of Commerce on one of the first flights.

The business people – along with others from the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, Scottish Development International (SDI) and Glasgow City Marketing Bureau (GCMB) – will attend a series of engagements in Düsseldorf, which is located in the heart of the prosperous Rhine-Ruhr region.

According to the airport's press release, Germany represents the largest international market for Glasgow with more than 71,000 trips made each year by German visitors who generate more than £19million for the local economy.

Lufthansa Regional will initially operate six flights a week, increasing to a daily service in June and it is the first time Glasgow Airport will have served Düsseldorf in 20 years. The launch of the route also marks the return of the extensive Lufthansa network to Glasgow.

Stuart Patrick, chief executive of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, said: “Düsseldorf is at the centre of the Ruhr Valley, where so much of Germany’s engineering industry is based, and Germany is an important market for Glasgow.

“We’re pleased to be taking a delegation of business people from the city there to explore trading opportunities. This Lufthansa service is the latest new route won by the Glasgow Airport management team, and we should all recognise their remarkable success, especially in these tough times.”

Glasgow City Council leader Gordon Matheson added: “Lufthansa’s new route between Düsseldorf and Glasgow is a major boost for the city and the wider West of Scotland economy.

“It provides a direct, daily flight to one of Europe’s wealthiest regions and there will undoubtedly be strong demand for this service from within the business community. However, it also has huge potential to deliver significant in-bound leisure tourism from Germany, which is our largest international market.”

Let's do a little comparison here... both of these Swiss International Airlines liveries are still in use, but I wonder which one looks better: (and both of these are A320-200s)

Old livery (reg. HB-IJF) -- with small winglets

New livery (reg. HB-JLT) -- with sharklets

The tope picture looks better. Nice picture of Vienna's airport. Looks like there is plenty of room to expand the current terminal.

@Equario VIE Airport looks really nice indeed, with a lot of apron space for aircraft parking... something I really want to see in a modern airport. Plus, indeed, I agree with GTR66: that airport has a lot of space that can be used to develop a larger terminal and an additional runway. I really would like to build an airport that is carefully developed and well-managed like Vienna.

Personally, the old Swiss "squares" branding was much more iconic (also a reflection of the original square variant of the Switzerland flag).

Why do I have this feeling that Lufthansa will announce a big A350XWB-900 order at the Paris Air Show in a few weeks? The A350XWB-900 would be a natural for the airline since 1) it would support the German aerospace industry and 2) it would replace LH's A340-300 and some A330-300's on longer international routes out of Frankfurt, Munich and eventually Berlin. My guess on order size: somewhere between 30 and 40 planes.

Lufthansa will not buy the A350XWB-1000 given the substantial investment in the A340-600 and A380-800 fleets.

It will be more likely that they will only firm up their new A320 neo and the 777-300ER for Swiss orders at the Paris Air Show.

Lufthansa has said that a possible larger wide body order will only come in September, and that they are deliberating the A350, the 787 and the 777X and that the order would be a joint order for all the Lufthansa Group airlines.

The 777-300ER order for Swiss could be seen as warm-up for a 777X order, Lufthansa has also been very vocal about their interest in the 787-10 over the last couple of years. So it's highly likely that they will split the order between Airbus and Boeing. Just like IAG and Air France/KLM have already done before them.

The order will also be for the A340-600 replacements, you have to remember that the deliveries will only start late this century and will run well into the 2020s. The A340-600s will be pretty old by then and the new planes will be significantly more economical in terms of fuel consumption.

An interesting article about Lufthansa's corporate customers edge


Tech Wheelers and Dealers Fly High On Lufthansa’s Bangalore Express



By the time he boarded the plane in San Francisco, just after lunch on Feb. 21, Tony Stuart had already collected eight business cards. Stuart, who runs a consulting firm out of Palo Alto, California, that matches Indian outsourcing firms with American clients, had paid $3,800 for his one-way business-class ticket to Bangalore.

Before the 22-hour journey — including a couple of hours in Frankfurt to change planes — was complete, he’d introduced himself to 19 people, all of them potential clients.

“That’s, what, like $150 a meeting?” he says. “I’d probably spend more taking them out for dinner in Frisco.”

Running his own company, almost all of Stuart’s business comes from the sort of frenetic networking he pulled off at 30,000 feet. Such exchanges happen all the time on Lufthansa’s flight 455, a flight so legendary it has earned the nickname: “The Bangalore Express.”

The beginning of a daylong marathon between Silicon Valley and its counterpart in India, LH 455 (which connects in Frankfurt with LH 754 to Bangalore) turns into a technology convention before it takes off.

On a recent Tuesday departure, Silicon Valley executives headed for Bangalore sit in the Lufthansa lounge at San Francisco International Airport, smartphones in hand.

Navin Chugh, managing director at First Advantage, a St. Petersburg, Florida-based background-checking company, corners one potential client. By the time the 11-hour flight to Frankfurt is done, he’s closed a deal.

“It was a complete cold introduction,” says Chugh, smoking a quick cigarette in Frankfurt’s airport. “He wasn’t even on my radar, and he’d never heard of us. Now we’re business partners.”

When boarding begins, the first-class travelers are led to the top deck of the Boeing 747-400, where the $17,300 round-trip tickets include two seats for each customer, so they can read by their full-size bed and its duvet in either the window or the aisle.

Then come the 80 business-class travelers — chief executive officers, vice presidents, venture-capital guys, lawyers and big-money entrepreneurs. Experienced road warriors, most dress in jeans and sweatshirts. The flight leaves at 2:40 p.m. sharp; Lufthansa is famous for being punctual.

It takes a while for the meet-and-greet onboard to warm up. Drinks arrive, then lunch. After a few hours, they’re ready to stretch their legs. They gather by the galley. They switch seats to get closer to people they want to talk to.

Entrepreneurs stalk venture capitalists, salesmen scope out new clients and CEOs get bombarded with business cards.

By the time the plane arrives in Frankfurt, cliques have formed, and groups walk to the modernist lounges scattered around the airport.

Wi-fi passwords are procured, and BlackBerrys and laptops are brandished.

After a while the crowd thins as some people head off to cities in Europe, others to Bombay or Delhi, rather than Bangalore. For the last leg of the flight, it’s 100 percent techies, and the dance begins again.

“This route for us is a pure, almost all-business-passenger route,” says Axel Hilgers, the airline’s South Asia director.

Among others, Lufthansa counts SAP AG, Cisco Systems, Honeywell International and Indian companies Wipro and Infosys as clients.

“And obviously they are all colleagues or competitors, and they run after the same clients.”

Of the $67 billion in software services India will export in 2012, more than half is purchased by US companies, according to Nasscom, the New Delhi-based industry association for IT services companies.

So senior executives are constantly flying back and forth to meet clients, keep an eye on quality control or visit the growing back offices overseen by companies such as International Business Machines, Convergys and Cognizant Technology Solutions.

Lufthansa has been flying between Bangalore and San Francisco for 11 years. The airline says the flight has sold out since its maiden voyage.

Grateful regulars, spared the annoyance of a two-hour flight to Bombay or Delhi before connecting to Europe, flocked to Lufthansa, which eventually ripped out some of the economy seats on its 747-400s to squeeze in its 80 business-class seats. That’s the most it carries on any route except for those serviced by an Airbus SAS A380.

Still, says a German diplomat who declined to be identified, anxious secretaries call the German Embassy in New Delhi at least a few times a month, hoping for a last- minute seat for a CEO.

Lufthansa’s flight remains popular amid some attractive options from competitors. Cathay Pacific Airways’s Bangalore-San Francisco run is often an hour faster. Emirates Airline has its layover in Dubai, which has better shopping than Frankfurt. Singapore Airlines flies a newer and more comfortable plane on the same route. Still, if you’re a player, the Bangalore Express is the way to fly.

Marc Casto, president of Casto Travel in San Jose, California, sells as many as $7 million worth of Bangalore-San Francisco tickets a year to corporate clients in the Bay Area. He says he has plenty of customers who specifically request Lufthansa.

“That flight’s definitely got a reputation for some great networking,” he says.

“You come across some serious heavy hitters,” says Devesh Agarwal, a tech entrepreneur from Bangalore who also blogs about aviation. He sat next to Kris Gopalakrishnan, co-founder of Infosys, and hitched a ride to Chennai on the private jet of another executive after getting friendly with him on the Bangalore Express.

“It’s sort of like being on the golf course with your most desired client,” Agarwal says. “You’ve got this guy next to you for 10 hours. If you can’t close a deal in 10 hours, maybe you need a better sales pitch.”

Momo1435, I still think at least for Lufthansa themselves, the replacement will be the A350XWB-900 now to replace the A340-300's, which are starting to age, and later down the road the A350XWB-1000 to replace the A340-600 (unless the 747-8I is intended as an A340-600 replacement).

@niknak That's a very interesting article on how Lufthansa bridges tech magnates and innovators between Silicon Valley (my region) and Bangalore, and I really find it as a story of inspiration and hope that with the right business models, airlines can attract even more premium passengers and allow better connections between journeys. I could imagine myself crossing around the world to visit far-flung places, and I would like an airline that not only is reliable and punctual, but also offers excellent or very good in flight services.

Aviationweek has talked with Lufthansa's CEO about the plans for the replacement of the A340s, the 747-400s........ and the 747-8s.
Quote:
777-9X Seen As Long Term 747-8 Replacement At Lufthansa

"Lufthansa CEO Christoph Franz pointed out that once a twin becomes available in the 747-8 size category, any airline would have to take a close look at such an aircraft because it is likely to be more efficient."

"The airline is studying the proposed new 777 family as part of its replacement plans for the A340-300 and -600. Lufthansa plans to order around 50 additional long-haul aircraft later this year."

"The airline is looking at the A350-900/1000 or a mix of Boeing 787-9/10X and the proposed 777-8X and -9X. Lufthansa plans to take delivery of the aircraft from around the turn of the decade to about 2025."
full article:
http://www.aviationweek.com/Article...._p0-584172.xml


This could mean that Lufthansa is already planning an early retirement for the latest version of the 747. They will take a good look at the 777-9X, if they find it good enough it could mean that the 747-8s will leave the fleet after around 10 years of service. It could also have an effect on the A340 and the last 747-400 replacements. If they get a good deal from Boeing it might also include the 787, then there won't be a place for the A350. But the A350 and the 777-9X could also compliment each other, with that in mind they could also skip the 787.

The CEO also complained that both Airbus and Boeing listen too much to the middle eastern carriers and come with new planes that are over designed with to much range and power then most other airlines need.


EDIT:
Bloomberg comes with the same story, just with the 747-400 instead of the 747-8

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-0...-747-400s.html


Apparently Lufthansa will still have 13 747-400s to be replaced at the start of the next decade.
