Heathrow to Hamburg

After 13 days in the UK, I headed off to Hamburg.

Why Hamburg? Simply, I had never been there before, so it was an opportunity to have a look around.

The flight from Heathrow to Hamburg was a Eurowings flight, operated by Germanwings, both subsidiaries of Lufthansa. Despite being fairly inexpensive, I had a checked bag and food which was nice, even though it was only about a 1 hour, 45 minute flight.

Anyway, here are some photos from Heathrow prior to departure.

Airbus A319-111, CS-TTG, operated by TAP Portugal

Airbus A321-131, D-AIRT, operated by Lufthansa

Airbus A320-214, D-AIUQ, operated by Lufthansa

Airbus A320-211, D-AIQN, operated by Germanwings

Airbus A320-214, EI-DVK, operated by Aer Lingus 
Airbus A321-231, G-EUXK, operated by British Airways

Airbus A330-343, G-VGEM, operated by Virgin Atlantic
One more thing to note is that it seems that for domestic and regional aircraft, Airbus rules the root in Europe. There are Boeing about [and I have not deliberately excluded any], but they appear outnumbered by Airbus by a considerable margin. Long haul might be a bit more even.
