Six Lufthansa 747s “Stuck” At Small Dutch Airport Now Allowed To Depart

I recently wrote about how six Lufthansa Boeing 747-400s landed at a small airport in the Netherlands several months ago, but weren’t allowed to leave. Well, there’s now an update on that situation.

Airlines around the globe have been putting planes into long-term storage, given the huge and sustained decrease in demand we’re seeing:

Some of the planes in storage will fly again, while others will be retired and may never carry passengers again
Regardless, a vast majority of planes taken out of service had to be flown somewhere, since there wasn’t enough room to keep them parked at major airports
