First flight Lufthansa A380 FRA-JFK 28th February 2011

Post by Lufthansa Cargo »

I figure that I should try to catch this special moment for you A380 lovers out there. Id have to say, you guys are right, this is a wonderfull aircraft although it really isn't that great for cargo. Even though my views of the A380 are changing I am still a fan of the B747.

Sorry for the bad quality as you can see, weather was not really on my side this time around. Sorry, no cabin pics as well. My tour of the aircraft interior was a really quick one prior to boarding for the outbound.

The flight numbers for this aircraft were LH400 (FRA-JFK) and LH405 (JFK-FRA)

Enjoy!! Sorry about the wrong date stamp, I realised that the date was wrong later on in the Evening.

Thanks, yeah for some reason they did not do the water cannon salute. I enquired about it and i was just told a simple no. No explanation why.

Yeah but it is a pain for cargo. Not enough room in the belly.
