LUFTHANSA Changes Mind About A350 To Seoul

LUFTHANSA Changes Mind About A350 To Seoul

In today’s timetable update email that I woke up to, it appears that Lufthansa will not be sending the A350 to Seoul for a special appearance after all.

A few days ago, LH updated their timetable showing that their A350 would debut in Seoul at the beginning of the Olympics and then again at the end.    It was to fly to Seoul on February 4 and then once more on February 25.

Looking at the schedule it now appears that LH has reverted back to having the A346 fly the route on those days.

I’m not sure why this whipsaw in flight planning took place, but it is what it is.     I can only venture a guess that LH has plans to send the A350 to Seoul, but it will be done as a separate one-off flight perhaps dedicated only to athletes traveling to and from the Olympics while regular passengers will fly the normal scheduled flights.
