22 years and 7 months after entering service ship D-ABVA is being decommissioned and will soon be sent to the scrapyard. During its tenure the aircraft has amassed just over 112,000 hours of flight time and 15,724 cycles. What’s surprising is that she looks as good today as she did on day one – a testament to Lufthansa’s excellent maintenance practices. The ship bears the name Berlin, a name that will be passed onto the next A380 to be added to the Lufthy fleet.
