    Am curious (and I know delivery may not be til 2012), but has LH announced somewhere at somepoint what the inaugural route/flight would be for the intercontinental? Would love to be on it. I know its way far away, so please keep the flaming set to a low simmer....thanks.
     
  2. Although I am sure they have a plan, maybe they should do a Round the World M*P DO

    You have a GREAT IDEA!!! We should contact LH immediately and charter it before it enters svc. Why not be "test flown" by us experts???

    So they should do an all C-Class or all F-Class edition of the 747-8I? Otherwise a lot of us will not be happy ;-)
     
  5. LH seems to be big on Promotional schemes.
    If done properly, maybe it is possible.

    We should all post on the LH facebook page :p

    stranger things have happen. Look at the Huge DO that FT'ers did late last yr with continental and boeing. Even got to visit the 787 plants.

    reach out to a couple of people around here who gave me some contact ideas, so I'll see what I hear back.

    I would figure pricing would be similar to published fares, maybe a charter discount? This probably will go no where, but we'll float the idea and see how far it can go.

    I'm contemplating booking a seat on its first flight. Hopefully its not something great like Frankfurt-Buenos Aires, or some great 16hr leg.

    the longest the flight the better it would be! 10 - 13 hours flights go by too quickly imo! one of those days i need to get my lovely back side onto one of those sin - jfk or sin - lax flight.

    How about a RTW? FRA - JFK - SFO - AKL - SYD - SIN/BKK - JNB - FRA or something like that? With a little DO at every stop ;-)

    All I can say is that I am aware of a conversation already in the works about a good DO. hopefully it turns into something.
