For those of you not familiar with the Lufthansa and Community Buzz threads on FlyerTalk, an event has been arranged by Oliver2002 in coordination with the Hamburg Port Festival from May 10 to May 11 to satisfy the “AVGEEK” in all of us.
The event is set up in an A-La-Carte style so you can pick and choose which events you attend.
Here are the details of the event:
SATURDAY MAY 10:
Attendees will have have the opportunity to join an EXCLUSIVE 2.5 hour tour of AIRBUS in Finkenwerder (XFW). The tour will include an up-close look at the A320 assembly area as well as the A380’s finish line. The tour will take place in the morning.
Please note that this booking is limited to the first 40 people who sign up. The cost of this tour is expected to be in the €25-33 range. Final cost will be determined according to how many people sign up.
In the afternoon, you can of course enjoy the Hamburg Port Fest and take in all that Hamburg has to offer. Many of us will be heading over to the Miniatur Wunderland to see the world’s ‘biggest smallest’ airport.
At 7:00 pm, the group will board a sailing yacht for a dinner cruise down the Elbe. The cruise will coincide with the Fireworks display scheduled for that evening. The yacht will return to port at 11:30p. The cost of the Dinner Cruise is €105 which includes a ‘welcome aboard’ drink and appetizers along with a full buffet-style dinner.
SUNDAY MAY 11:
Today, we go to Lufthansa Technik at 10:30a (time may need to be adjusted) for a 3 hour visit that will include tours of the VIP Hangar where private aircraft are retrofitted, the Overhaul Workshop and the Main Hangar. You will receive a nice souvenir for your ‘effort’! 🙂
This tour is limited to 20 participants and will cost €32 per person.
I expect that ‘Hamburg-DO’ will sell out within the next week or 2 due to the nature of the events and roster limits. If you are interested in signing up for any of these events, please send a ‘PM’ to Oliver2002 on FlyerTalk. If you are not a FT member you can sign up here and follow the thread for this event.
If you have any questions about the event, please ask!
