Last Lufthansa flight to/from Athens with Airbus A300

Lufthansa performed today it's last schedule flight to/from Athens with the Airbus A300 plane. It was flight LH 3382/3383 from/to FRA (Frankfurt, Germany). From now on, all flights of Lufthansa will be operated with Airbus A320/A321 planes, as the A300s are being retired. The A300 has been used by Lufthansa in ATH/LGAV airport since it's opening in 2001 and as the pilot said on his last departure "it has been always a pleasure to fly to Athens, thank you all". The last ever flight of a Lufthansa Airbus A300 is scheduled to be LH 3853 from FCO (Rome, Italy) to FRA on July 1st 2009.

  1. Dear MerNion,

    thanks for the great pictures!

    Fortunally I was the First Officer flying to Athens on June 29th on the AM - a once in a lifetime chance.

    Maybe there is a way to get in touch with you... I have a couple of pictures from the roll-in.

    Best regards from FRA,

  2. Dear Andy,

    thanks for getting in touch! I am really happy that flight crews read the blog! Were you the one that talked to the tower upon departure and said these kind words to the controller or the Captain did?
    I would be more than happy if you contact me using the "Contact me" form on the right (below the Label Cloud) and send me your e-mail, so i can mail you back.

    Happy landings,
