When Lufthansa’s ‘D-AIKJ’ comes out of scheduled maintenance in September, it will be the first A330 to be in service that will not have a First Class cabin. The Munich-based aircraft will only have Business, Premium Economy, and Economy class cabins.
Based on initial plans, the aircraft will only fly between Munich and Delhi beginning on September 23 and will remain on the route until her retirement, though I suspect that commitment can change. A-AIKJ entered service in 2005, so there are few good years left to her.
As more A330 aircraft go through their maintenance schedules, expect more to have their First Class cabin removed.
