A few weeks ago, Lufthansa announced that Mumbai would be the 3rd destination to be served by the new A350s joining the fleet. They’ve further clarified the announcement to include the start date for the A350s service between Munich and Mumbai.
Beginning April 15, 2017 the A350 will take over for the A330 on the route. The flight numbers remain the same but the flight times have been updated to reflect the A350’s performance:
Flight LH764 will depart Munich at 11:40a and arrive in Mumbai at 11:05p.
Flight LH765 will depart Mumbai at 1:05a and arrive in Munich at 5:50a.
Previously, LH764 departed Munich at 11:35a and arrived in Mumbai at 11:55p, while LH765 departed at 1:25a and arrived in Munich at 5:50a.
More of my favorite shots from the time I spent in Munich a few weeks ago. Most of these images come from the Southern Runway which creates some great opportunities at ‘Sky Shots’ as well as having the airport in the background. Then again, there’s really no bad place around ‘MUC’ to watch them come and go! Enjoy!
For you photographer types, the equipment used was a Nikon D800 with a Sigma 150-600S. A nearly perfect formula considering the Megapixels of the D800 and the crispness of the Sigma.

A week ago I was in Munich for a week to participate in the Airbus A350 ‘Roll In’ event and in between gatherings and events, I had the chance to sit on a hill or 2 for a couple of days and catch aircraft coming and going from Munich. Some spotting was challenging due to bad weather so some photos may be a bit gray and wet, but I suffer for my art! 🙂
Being Germany’s 2nd largest airport, ‘MUC’ is home to a variety of traffic that most people will not see at their home base. Everything from local ‘LCC’ birds to exotic African and Mid-Eastern traffic can be spotted on the tarmac, not to mention nearly half the Lufthansa fleet as well!
Not much else to say other than enjoy the photos. More will be coming in the next few days as I sort through them.
