As expected, Lufthansa has added a substantial amount of training flights to their new A350 between now and December 27. Yesterday’s update covered only this week’s activity and was limited to a few airports. Today’s announcement not only increases the amount of flights but adds new places that the A350 can be spotted as Lufthansa pilots continue to get enough hours behind the ‘yoke’ so that they can be certified to operate the A350. Expect an update for additional flights between December 28 and January 31 to be released in a day or 2.
