Lufthansa KSAN-EDDF

From what I know, Lufthansa uses the A340-300 on this route. Correct me if I’m wrong. Sadly, the A340-300 did not decide to bless us with her presence when IF was hiring, so i guess the A350 is the next best option😂

Cruising over Utah

Right at the border of North Dakota and Canada.
Up above Hudson Bay, Canada.

Proceeding on course over Greenland. Wait, that isn’t green…

Approaching the Netherlands 🇳🇱

Bumpy descent with a 5/10 landing into Frankfurt.

Please be aware that I changed the time in some of these shots because it was too dark to see diddly squat.

Yeah that might have been better. And that was on a full power take off that I nearly missed it

Nice pics!

Yup, typically they use that on the route but there was one day when they used the A340-600. They were supposed to have regular A340-600 service from March 31, 2019, but scrapped plans for the upgauge.

Interesting. Thanks!

Nice picture, but very close indeed!

It was takeoff at San Diego, not landing. I was pretty heavy so I almost didn’t make it😂

Using every inch of runway on takeoff is a respect for runway builders.😂😂
