Re: A321 NEO LR CDG - JFK Flight Tracker

It looked as if it was going to land on one of the 22s, but nope. This is extremely unfortunate for me as I happen to live under the path that aircraft take to the 22s, and I was planning on spotting it. :(

Re: LH introduces revised livery

So, it seems that in the end the livery will indeed feature the "LH yellow", in the title font, correct? Or was this just some one-time gimmick for the unveiling? http://www.airliners.net/photo/Lufthansa/Boeing-747-830/4841333 http://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/3/3/3/4841333.jp...
