The final MD-11 freighter aircraft operated by Lufthansa Cargo will land at Frankfurt Airport at noon on October 15, 2021, marking the end of an era (FRA).
A special goodbye livery is currently being worn by the final MD-11, registered D-ALCC, for its final flights to Cairo, Tel Aviv, Chicago, and Nᴇᴡ Yᴏʀᴋ
After 23 years of service, Lufthansa Cargo is switching to Boeing 777F freighters in place of its MD-11 freighters.
Its most recent 777F, a used plane with the registration D-ALFJ, was put into service so rapidly that Lufthansa Cargo didn’t even have time to give it the entire paint job.
According to a statement released by the firm on September 29, 2021, “the intricate livery in the well-known Lufthansa (LHAB) (LHA) design was dispensed with in order to make the freighter’s capacity available to clients as soon as feasible.” The airplane will be flying entirely in wʜɪᴛe till further notice, with just a witty fuselage livery.
This aircraft’s “tongue-in-cheek” livery reads, “I’m a natural beauty,” in small characters on the side. I’m awaiting the makeup from Lufthansa Cargo.
On September 29, 2021, D-ALFJ was joined in the cargo airline’s FRA-based fleet by D-ALFK, a brand-new 777F fresh from the Washington state Boeing factory. As a result, there are presently 11 of the aircraft in Lufthansa Cargo’s fleet. The Gerᴍᴀɴ airline also promotes space on four additional 777Fs flown by the joint venture AeroLogic.
Dorothea von Boxberg, CEO of Lufthansa Cargo, stated in a statement, “We are very pleased that we can now offer our clients the capacity of a total of fifteen highly efficient wide-body freighters.”
