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 announced that the Airbus A350 will be deployed on additional routes between Munich and the USA.
Beginning on March 25, Newark and Denver will begin seeing the newest long haul bird in the LH fleet. Newark will immediately see A350 on daily flights between Munich on the 25th, while Denver will see the A350 phased in over the Spring and Summer. The A350 replaces the A340-600 on both routes.
The details for the Denver deployment are as follow:
Between March 25 and and May 31, the A350 will fly between Munich and Denver on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
Between June 1 and and June 30, the A350 will fly the route everyday EXCEPT Thursdays.
Beginning July 1, and lasting at least until October 27, the A350 will fly the route each day.
After removing First Class from flights between Munich and Denver on December 2, 2016, Lufthansa is set to bring back their best cabin to the Rocky Mountain destination.
Beginning on May 1, Lufthansa brings back the A346 on the route which allows for First to be back on the timetable. Lufthansa currently flies the A333 on the route which does not offer First Class. Expect this to be in place through at least the Summer timetable.
It would be no surprise if the A350 begins to serve Denver later this year which would once again eliminate First Class since the A350 is not equipped with the ‘F’ cabin.
This change has no impact on the 744 service between Frankfurt and Denver.
