Two weeks ago, Lufthansa updated their Winter Timetable which reflected the removal of the A350 from their Munich-Boston route. The removal was slated for October 29, at which point a mix of A330 and A340 aircraft were scheduled to take over on the route for the winter.
With their update today, Lufthansa has walked back that decision and has extended the A350’s presence on Munich-Boston through the entire winter schedule. However it will not be a daily basis.
The A350 will fly the route daily until December 1. Then beginning on December 2, the A350 will only fly the route on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. The A340-600 will fly the route on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Expect further tweaks to their timetable in the coming weeks.
Lufthansa announced that it will increase the amount of flights between Munich and Tokyo (HND) for the Fall/Winter timetable for 2017/18.
Effective on October 29, daily A346 flights will take place between MUC and HND. During past winter schedules, LH typically only flew the route 5x/week. The daily service during the winter now matches the daily flights found in the Summer schedule.
Lufthansa has updated their timetable to reflect that the A350 will remain on routes from Munich to both Mumbai and Delhi beyond this Summer.
Initially, the A350 was scheduled to serve the routes until the end of the 2017 Summer timetable, but now the schedule reflects that the A350 will remain on these routes for the Winter 2017/18 schedule. This suggests that the A350 will be flying to these destinations through at least March of 2018.
