In addition to my previous post talking about the A350 coming to places like Chicago, Mexico City, and New York’s JFK there are a few other cities that will see LH’s newest Munich-based flagship.
Beginning on March 25, the A346 currently flying between Munich and Newark will be replaced by an A350. Though the schedule says it’s only in place for Spring and Summer, I suspect that the A350 will become a year-round visitor to Newark.
Denver will also begin to see the A350 next week, though the introduction will be phased in. Between March 25 and May 31, the A350 will fly to Denver everyday EXCEPT for Tuesday and Thursday. Then, between June 1 and June 30, the A350 will fly to ‘DEN’ everyday except Thursday. The A350 will fly the route daily beginning July 1.
In addition to Newark and Denver, the A350 will also debut on the daily flight between Munich and Vancouver beginning May 1. The A350 will replace the A333 that currently serves the route.
Lufthansa has made a few changes to their timetable to reflect more A350 aircraft entering service.
With their most recent changes announced on March 7, here is what we can expect:
Munich – Cape Town beginning on December 1 will be served by the A350, replacing the A340-600 currently on the route.
Munich – Chicago originally was scheduled to see the A350 during the Spring and Summer only, but that has now been extended into the Winter 2018/19 timetable.
Munich – Mexico City beginning on October 28 will have the A350 fly the route, however it will still share the workload with an A346. From October 28 to November 30, the A350 will fly the route on Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday leaving the A346 to the flights operated on Thursday and Saturday. From December 1 to March 19, 2019 the A350 will fly the route Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday while the A346 will fly the route on Thursdays.
