Not one for letting grass grow under their feet, Lufthansa schedule management has begun to tweak their Spring/Summer 2019 timetable. Thus far only 2 changes have been filed in their system and they are minor, but many more are expected in the coming weeks.
Frankfurt – Bangkok effective March 31, 2019 will be flown by an A340-600 instead of an A340-300.
Frankfurt – Dallas effective march 31, 2019 will be flown by an A340-600 instead of an A330-300.
Lufthansa has begun to update their Winter 2018/19 timetable to reflect changes in capacity due to seasonal shifts in passenger traffic.
For the most part, LH is increasing capacity on routes that favor warmer climates during the Northern Hemisphere’s winter.
The changes are as follows:
Frankfurt – Bangkok: Beginning October 28, the A380 will replace the A343.
Frankfurt – Bogota: Beginning October 28, the A346 will replace the A343 on the route.
Frankfurt – Dallas: Beginning October 28, the A333 will fly the route exclusively (compared to a mix of A330 and A340 used last winter).
Frankfurt – Houston: Beginning January 2, 2019, the 747-8i will replace the A380.
Frankfurt – Miami: Beginning October 28, the A346 will replace the A380.
Frankfurt – New York (JFK): Beginning October 28, LH404 and LH405 will be flown by an A343, replacing the A333 used last winter.
Frankfurt – Philadelphia: Beginning October 28 the mainline A333 replaces the A340-300 CityLine.
Frankfurt – San Francisco: Beginning October 28 the A346 replaces the A380.
Frankfurt – Seattle: Beginning October 28 the A333 replaces the 747-400.
Frankfurt – Shanghai: Beginning October 28, the A346 replaces the A380.
For the Winter 2018/19 timetable, Eurowings has increased capacity on certain routes and altered frequencies on 2 destinations.
As far as the capacity increases are concerned, effective October 30 the A343 will replace the A333 on flights between Dusseldorf and Fort Myers. On October 28, the A343 will replace the A333 on flights between Dusseldorf and Miami.
The reason for the change is due to increased passenger demand for flights to warmer destinations during the Winter.
On October 28, service between Munich and Punta Cana will increase from 1 flight per week to 2 flights per week. SunExpress will operate those flights.
Beginning October 31, service between Munich and Mauritius will be reduced to 1 flight per week (previously 2 flights/week).
