Before Spring ever arrives (at least north of the Equator), LH is already looking to the end of the year and has tweaked aircraft assignments on a handful of long-haul routes.   This of course is done primarily because of demand shifts based on the season as well as maintenance schedules for certain aircraft types.

The changes are as follows:

  • Frankfurt – Atlanta beginning October 29 will see the A343.
  • Frankfurt – Bangkok effective October 28 will see the A380 instead of the 744.
  • Frankfurt – Chennai effective October 29 will see the 343.
  • Frankfurt – Dallas effective October 29 will see a mix of the A333 and A343.
  • Frankfurt – Hong Kong effective October 29 will see the 747-8i instead of the A380.
  • Frankfurt – Male effective November 1 will see the A333 in stead of the A343.
  • Frankfurt – Philadelphia effective October 29 will see the A343.
  • Frankfurt – Rio de Janeiro effective October 28 will see the 747 instead of the 747-8i.
