Beginning sometime during the second quarter this year, Lufthansa will begin using their A350s on flights between Munich and Mumbai. Currently the route is flown by an Airbus A330.
Flight information remains the same. Flight 764 will depart Munich at 11:35a, arriving in Mumbai at 11:55p. Flight 765 will depart Mumbai at 1:25a, arriving in Munich at 5:50a.
Look for more destinations to be announced soon. Lufthansa likes to rotate new aircraft to a variety of new destinations, plus more A350s will be joining the fleet allowing LH to expand their reach. I expect a few East Coast USA destinations to be next in line to see the A350.
Once LH announces the exact date for Mumbai, I’ll pass that info along.
Lufthansa has updated their timetable to reflect the A350 taking over flying the route between Munich and Boston.
Beginning March 14, the A350 will begin to fly the route that is currently flown by the A330.
Flight info is as follows:
LH424 departs Munich at 3:55p, arriving in Boston at 6:35p
LH425 departs Boston at 8:20p, arriving in Munich at 9:45a the following morning.
With this announcement, Lufthansa now serves Delhi and Boston with their A350 aircraft.
A few days ago, Lufthansa updated their timetable to reflect a switch in aircraft that will be used between Frankfurt and Detroit.
Beginning July 2, Lufthansa will begin flying the 747-400 on their daily flight to the Motor City, replacing the A340-300 that has been on the route until now. This will be the case at least for the Summer timetable which expires on September 29. LH will most likely downgage the route to a smaller aircraft for Winter 2017/18, but at least for the Summer and early Fall, passengers can enjoy the Queen of the Skies from DTW.
This covers flight LH442 that departs FRA at 10:00a and arrives in Detroit at 12:40p, and LH443 that departs Detroit at 3:50p, arriving in Frankfurt at 5:40a the following morning.
