Lufthansa’s MD-11 Retirement Draws Closer With Double 777F Delivery

September 29, 2021

The remaining days for Lufthansa Cargo’s only remaining MD-11F are incredibly numbered,
as the airline took delivery of two more Boeing 777F aircraft.

The final MD-11 cargo flight is planned to touch down at noon on Friday, October 15th,
after two decades of service from the type within the Lufthansa Cargo fleet.

Lufthansa Cargo has been left with a singe MD-11F, registered as D-ALCC.

According to data from ch-aviation.com, the jet is 23.15 years old, having first flown in 1998.

The aircraft was delivered to Lufthansa Cargo new
and has completed some 95,517 flight hours across 17,865 flight cycles.

Western Global Airlines is expected to take the plane off of Lufthansa Cargo’s hands,
and the switchover is closer than you may think.

According to Lufthansa Cargo,
the aircraft’s last cargo flight will touch down at Frankfurt Airport at midday on October 15th.

The aircraft has been given a special livery for its final few flights.

The phrases ‘farewell’ and ‘thank you, MD-11’ have been applied to the jet’s fuselage.

Denn die letzte MD-11, mit dem Kennzeichen D-ALCC und mit Abschiedsbeklebung,
wurde nochmals gebraucht.
Sie flog zwei Mal nach New York.
Am Sonntag war aber nun endgültig Schluss.
Um 12:02 Uhr landete sie auf Piste 07R des Frankfurter Flughafens.
Lufthansa Cargo ist damit zur reinen Boeing-777F-Betreiberin geworden.
Die Zahl der weltweit verbliebenen MD-11-Betreiber sinkt auf drei.
