AEG J.I and J.II (Germany)
The longer J.II of the following year differed further in having horn-balanced tail control surfaces and upper ailerons. A total of over 600 J.I/J.Ia/J.IIs were built.
After the war J.IIs
first passed to Deutsche Luft-Reederei. This airline began what became the first sustained daily passenger aeroplane service in the world with them and DFWs on 5 February 1919 (between Berlin and Weimar). Although early commercial J.IIs retained open cockpits, modified aircraft quickly appeared with an enclosed cabin for two passengers.
