Deutsche Lufthansa AG (FWB: LHA, OTCQX: DLAKY) (German pronunciation: [ˈdɔʏt͡ʃə ˈlʊfthanza]) is the flag carrier of Germany and the largest airline in Europe in terms of overall passengers carried and fleet size. The German government had a 35.68% stake in Lufthansa until 1997, but the company is now owned by private investors (88.52%), MGL Gesellschaft für Luftverkehrswerte (10.05%), Deutsche Postbank (1.03%), and Deutsche Bank (0.4%) and has 37,042 employees (as of March 2007). The name of the company is derived from Luft (the German word for "air"), and Hansa (after the Hanseatic League, a powerful medieval trading group). The airline is the world's fourth-largest airline in terms of overall passengers carried, operating services to 18 domestic destinations and 203 international destinations in 78 countries across Africa, Americas, Asia and Europe. Together with its partners, Lufthansa services around 410 destinations. With over 710 aircraft it has the second-largest passenger airline fleet in the world when combined with its subsidiaries. Lufthansa's registered office and corporate headquarters is in Deutz, Cologne, Germany, with its main operations base (Lufthansa Aviation Center (LAC) and primary traffic hub at Frankfurt Airport in Frankfurt am Main with a second hub at Munich Airport. The majority of Lufthansa's pilots, ground staff, and flight attendants are based in Frankfurt. Lufthansa is a founding member of Star Alliance, the world's largest airline alliance, formed in 1997. The Lufthansa Group employs 117,000 people worldwide of 146 nationalities. In 2010, over 90 million passengers flew with Lufthansa (not including Germanwings and Brussels Airlines).

Discontinued Scahbak 1/600 Scale Diecast Models produced in Germany during the 70s, 80s & 90, before Schabak closed in the late 1990's.
Schabak was a die-cast toy producer based in Nurnberg, Germany. The company was well known for its line of German cars and high-quality commercial airline models. Schabak was formed in 1966 by Max Haselmann, Gerhard Hertlein, Horst Widmann and Wolfgang Stolpe. The company began as a toy distributor, mainly for Schuco Modell toys - and not as a producer. When Shuco went out of business in the late 1970s, Schabak acquired most of Schuco's tooling (cars and airplanes) and made agreements with many airlines to continue producing model aircraft. The company reissued many of Schuco's own diecast airplanes before producing miniature cars. Schabak then carried on the Schuco tradition of model cars. In the early 1980s, Schabak largely replaced Schuco, but it should be remember that Gama Toys acquired dies from Schuco and reproduced many of Schuco's 1:43 scale line as well.
Schabak, perhaps more than anything, is known for its diecast airplanes, mostly commercial airliner models in 1:600 scale. As mentioned earlier, Schabak's first planes were taken directly from Schuco. Schabak had well over 200 airlines as customers, and even produced the liveries of some defunct airlines. Thus, the company has become a competitive name in the world of airline promotionals, and their offerings were in a consistent state of change. Schabak was, for a long period during the 1990s, the only company known to have a contract to produce models of Iraqi Airways, having produced a Boeing 747 of that airline in the 1:250 scale. Schabak represented nearly 100 different airlines in 1:250 and 1:600 scales. Aircraft manufacturers in the Schabak line are the old Junkers JU52, Concorde, Vickers Viscount, Ilyushin IL 86 and 96, Tupolev 154, McDonnell-Douglas DC-9 and MD-11, Boeing 737, 747 (including Air Force One), 747 short fuselage, 747-400, 767, 777, 787, Airbus A300, A310, A 319, A320, A321, A330, A340.
