Almost seven years after CityLine operated its last Avro RJ85 flight on behalf of Lufthansa Regional, an RJ85 is once again flying on the German airline’s routes, in the form of CityJet‘s EI-RJU (msn E2365). Lufthansa is wet-leasing the RJ85 to operate several routes on its behalf. EI-RJU had been operating on behalf of Air France. She returned home to Dublin on 17 July, and then on the following day positioned to Frankfurt as LH9914—just in time to operate LH1024 to Bruxelles, where she spent the night. On 20 July, she operated LH1025 back to Frankfurt, LH248/249 to Milano Malpensa and back, LH1012/1013 to Bruxelles and back, LH160/165 to Leipzig and back, and finally LH1024 to Bruxelles, and another overnight stay in the Belgian capital. She is scheduled to fly this itinerary for the duration of her lease to Lufthansa.
