Blizzard Delays Lufthansa’s A350 Debut In The USA

As luck (or bad luck) would have it, passengers scheduled to fly from Munich to Boston (and back) tomorrow had their flights cancelled due to the Blizzard bearing down on the Northeast corridor of the US.     What makes it worse was the fact that tomorrow’s flight from Munich was also the first flight of Lufthansa’s A350 to the USA.

With Lufthansa cancelling all flights to and from Boston, New York, Newark, and Philadelphia due to the weather on March 14, the debut of the LH A350 in the USA will have to wait until Wednesday, March 15.   Hopefully not too many ‘Avgeeks’ were lined up to be on this inaugural event!
