I want to know how they announce a flight at the airport, for example:

Lufthansa Flug 375

Do they announce the flight number like normal numbers or digit by digit?

    International flights will always be announced in English too. – Takkat Oct 1 '11 at 20:25

    completely off-topic: Lufthansa flight 357 is actually a train (search for "LH 357") – Jan Oct 17 '11 at 13:06

There is no fixed rule for this. I've heard all possible versions:

  • "Achtung meine Damen und Herren, Lufthansa Flug Drei - Fünfundsiebzig ..."
  • "Achtung meine Damen und Herren, Lufthansa Flug Dreihundertfünfundsiebzig ..."
  • "Achtung meine Damen und Herren, Lufthansa Flug Drei - Sieben - Fünf ..."

None of these seems to be "right" or "wrong" and you'll find them all.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think flight numbers are normally announced digit by digit.

There are some examples on this site: http://www.light2art.de/mp3-Flughafen-Ansagen.html (listen to "Köln: letzter Aufruf nach Palma de Mallorca")
