    What if a big bus is named "Tel Aviv" and goes on a FRA-IKA journey? :)

    You think they will name a plane Tel Aviv?

    Shouldn't D-AIMF be named "New York" and D-AIMG "San Francisco"?

    Or if LH decided to name some of them after their hub airports the next one should be "Düsseldorf" but there's a 744 (D-ABVH) with that name already.

    Isn't the next A380 going to be called "New York" and "San Fransisco" ? If not...I think it will be Düsseldorf...

    San Fransisco would be logic. A380's next destination.

    I wouldn't rule it out. TLV is a fairly important destination for LH, and they make a lot of money there. Germany would have to re-negotiate the bilateral with Israel first though. It currently stipulates exact aircraft types, one B744 and one A346 from Frankfurt, plus one A343 from Munich (though LH can send smaller aircraft anytime they like).

    Let me put it this way - I think LH naming an aircraft "Tel Aviv" is a lot more likely than A380 service to IKA! ;)

    I'd put money on none of those happening.
    Why put controversial names on an aircraft ? That only adds complexity and potential troubles.

    Poor thing! [​IMG]
    Shouldn't she be given another name?

    She was delivered in 1990 - I don't know how much longer the old girl will stay with LH!
