    airberlin starts Boston service. May 7,2016

    Another new carrier launch, another crap weather day, business as usual:

    airberlin 7472 heavy, arriving at Boston Logan on it's first revenue flight:

    Nice to see BOS stack in more foreign carriers. Nice photos!

    Of more interest to me is that SAS 737. Standard equipment? I've always found narrow body TALT equipment interesting.

    ... And take this for what it's worth, but I think it's absurd a person would need permission from MASSPORT and state police to photograph at the airport. Or was this permission granted for the purpose of being on their property and not necessarily the act of taking photos?

    The SAS is a BBJ all business class, I guess trying to compete with Nor Shuttle

    The permission is needed to be on the parking garage which is on Massport property. Without their permission you will be asked to leave...

    Well done Rich given the weather conditions (we feel your pain here too!). Hope BOS has enough gates to handle the additional traffic.

    Hey Mark, Boston is quickly running out of gates... One of the international gates is down due the construction of the A380 gates. There are many times when flights arrive at Terminal E and there are no gates open, planes and passengers have to wait..... it's not a good thing but part of the growth process I guess.....

    Like you with Icelandair 763, the next day was better for airberlin



    All for now,

    DH on them to FRA out of JFK a few years back, nice ride ,good little line.
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!
