The route is scheduled to begin on May 16, 2013 and will operate on a daily basis. This will complement the existing daily flight from Frankfurt.
The Munich-Vancouver flight will operate as LH476 departing Munich(MUC) at 15:30 (3:30p) and arriving in Vancouver(YVR) at 17:05 (5:05p local time).
The Vancouver-Munich return flight will operate as LH477 departing Vancouver at 18:45 (6:45p local time) and arriving in Munich at 14:00 (2:00p) the following afternoon.
Currently, this new flight is part of Lufthansa’s current fare sale involving flights FROM Germany to North America and is available for booking. The current fare is €663 for tickets booked by November 20, for travel between May 16 and 31.
The route will be flown by a 3-class Airbus A330. It may be too early to tell if it will be flown by a new or retrofitted A330 showcasing Lufthansa’s new cabin interiors. Munich has a significant part of its long haul fleet already retrofitted with the new interior but I’m not sure if this route will have it. I’ll pass along that information once I find out for myself!
