Aside from all of this strike talk, Lufthansa did take time to announce that they have made a change that impacts their service to Cape Town, South Africa.

Until now, Lufthansa flew between Frankfurt and Cape Town only during the winter season in the northern hemispehere, which is the same time that South Africa enjoys its summer.   Beginning with their Spring/Summer timetable, the route will be flown year-around.   The 3 weekly flights will continue to be the same:

Lufthansa flight LH576 will depart Frankfurt at 10:15p on Wednesday/Friday/Sunday.   The flight arrives in Cape Town at 10:00a the following morning.

Lufthansa flight LH577 will depart Cape Town at 5:40p on Monday/Thursday/Saturday.  The flight arrives in Frankfurt at 5:40a the following morning.

Lufthansa will continue to use the Airbus A340-300 on the route.

Daily service between Frankfurt and Johannesburg remains unchanged.
