LUFTHANSA Announcements: NEW USA Destination / A380s In Munich / LH Brings Back MUC-SIN / More flights to ORD……

Earlier this morning, LUFTHANSA released a series of announcements including the launch of a new USA destination, the introduction of A380 aircraft to Munich, a return to Singapore and more flights to Chicago!

First, Lufthansa has announced that it will begin flying between Frankfurt and San Diego in 2018.   Though no specifics were announced,  they did indicate that the flight will be operated 5 times a week.   I suspect that the flights will begin sometime in the March-April timeframe.

Next, LH also announced that 5 A380 aircraft will be transferred from Frankfurt to their new home in Munich and will serve ultra-long haul destinations such as Hong Kong, Los Angeles, and Beijing.  This will take place in time for the Summer 2018 timetable.

Additionally, LH indicated that it will once again offer service between Munich and Singapore beginning with the Summer 2018 schedule.   Initial plans indicated that the flight will operate 5 times a week.

And lastly, Lufthansa has announced that it will increase service between Munich and Chicago.   Currently, LH flies to ORD 7 times a week, with the new announcement, there will be 10 flights per week beginning with the Summer 2018 schedule.

Lufthansa has updated their Winter 17/18 timetable to reflect an increase of A350 use between Munich and Boston.   Before this update, LH planned to send the A350 to Boston only on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

With the latest update, the A350 will now fly daily between Munich and Boston at least for February and March.    So between February 3 and March 28, passengers will be able to enjoy the newest aircraft type in the fleet.

As it stands now the A350 will still fly the route daily from October 29 to December 1, but for the height of the holiday season in December and January, the A346 will do the heavy lifting on Saturdays, Sundays, and Wednesdays.

Effective on October 29, daily A346 flights will take place between MUC and HND.   During past winter schedules, LH typically only flew the route 5x/week.   The daily service during the winter now matches the daily flights found in the Summer schedule.
