Starting this Saturday, both USA bound flights from Düsseldorf will be flown by A340-300 aircraft that will feature Lufthansa’s latest Business Class cabin. The DUS-USA routes have always been a quiet little ‘secret’ when compared to flights from Munich and Frankfurt. DUS usually gets overlooked when one thinks about routes between the US and Germany.
Aircraft D-AIGT and D-AIGV are the dedicated 2-class A343s that are based in Düsseldorf and will serve as the workhorses between DUS-Newark and DUS-Chicago. Keep in mind that there always exist the potential for other aircraft to be substituted due to flight planning or maintenance issues, though these instances should be fairly rare.
