In another week or so, Lufthansa will be opening new Senator and Business Lounges at Boston’s Logan Airport (Terminal E).
The new lounge is part of a wider renovation that has been taking place in ‘BOS’ and the new lounges promise to be substantial upgrades over the previous versions.
What will be new is the fact that passengers can now board their flights directly from the lounge, similar to what is in place at airports like Washington Dulles. So you can see your A350 from your seat in the lounge!
The 6,800 square foot lounge will also introduce a new concept to Lufthansa Lounges which focuses on separate ‘Living Areas’. For example, this lounge will offer a separate Bar, Bistro, and rest areas. The view promises to be fantastic as well as the lounge will over look Boston Harbor.
Earlier today, Lufthansa touted the virtues and benefits of the A350 that we’ve heard all along. However they are finally beginning to hint at where the new birds will fly to once they begin to enter service in January 2017.
The new piece of news was the fact that the first routes that will see the A350 appear to be Boston and Delhi. Keep in mind that the A350s will be a 3-class aircraft, comprised of Business, Premium Economy, and Economy Cabins. First Class will not be offered on ANY A350.
Since we are still 9 months away from even the most optimistic predictions regarding entry into service, I expect there to be several more changes to LH’s initial plans.
Lufthansa has announced an additional delay to the deployment of the A380 to Seoul, South Korea and the 747-8i to Boston.
In the latest update, it now appears that the A380 will begin to fly between Frankfurt and Seoul on May 14. The 747-8i is now set to appear on May 15 for flights between Frankfurt and Boston (LH422/LH423).
Tentatively, there is also a one time 747-8i flight between Frankfurt and Boston on May 8 (LH422/423).
Lufthansa has updated their timetable to reflect a minor delay for the introduction of the A380 between Frankfurt and Seoul. Originally planned for April 26, the A380 will now debut on the route on May 6, 2015.
As a result of this minor delay, Frankfurt – Boston will have the 747-8i delayed until May 7. Originally, the 747-8i was set to begin flying FRA-BOS on April 27.
If your travels involve these days and routes, please check your assigned seats and make changes as needed since the A380 and 747-8i have ‘slightly’ different seating charts! 😉
