LUFTHANSA’s Ju52 Grounded Indefinitely

LUFTHANSA’s Ju52 Grounded Indefinitely

Earlier today, Lufthansa confirmed that the wonderful classic airliner, the Ju52, has been grounded indefinitely while it undergoes serious repairs.

During normal inspections, it was discovered that ‘Tante Ju’ had a central stringer break within her fuselage which will require a serious amount of work to repair and restore.   This was also the reason that the aircraft’s 2015 schedule was cut short.

At this point time, it is unknown how long the aircraft will be out of commission and no timeline has been speculated for her return.   Ticket sales for next season have been suspended until she is certified to return to service.

Hopefully the capable team at Lufthansa Technik will get her in the air sooner than later.
