Airbus A340-600 - Lufthansa

Lufthansa (Deutsche Lufthansa AG) is Germany's largest airline and the largest airline in Europe in terms of fleet size and passengers carried. Its main hub is Frankfurt while Munich is an important second hub, which helps to relieve capacity restrictions at Frankfurt. The airline was founded as Deutsche Luft Hansa in 1926. In 1945, after the German defeat in World War II, all flights were suspended. A new Lufthansa was formed in January 1953 and started flying in August 1954.

Lufthansa entered the widebody era with a Boeing 747 flight on April 26, 1970. Other widebody types of the past in the Lufthansa fleet were the McDonnell Douglas DC-10 and the Airbus A300 and A310. Today it flies the Airbus A330, A340-300 and -600, and the A380 together with the Boeing 747-400 and -8I. Lufthansa Cargo has the McDonnell Douglas MD-11 in service.

Lufthansa introduced the Airbus A340-600 in late 2003 and ordered a total of seventeen. The aircraft replaced a number of older Boeing 747 models. One of Lufthansa's A340-600s is painted in the livery of the Star Alliance, of which the airline is a founding member. Both pictures are taken at Lufthansa's main hub Frankfurt Rhein/Main Airport.
