Plane Spotter Alert:  Lufthansa Bringing New Livery To Seoul On Feb 26 To Pick Up German Olympic Team

Plane Spotter Alert: Lufthansa Bringing New Livery To Seoul On Feb 26 To Pick Up German Olympic Team

To bring the successful German Olympic Team home in style, Lufthansa has dispatched their 747-8i (D-ABYA) to Seoul.    Lufthansa flight LH713 scheduled for February 26 will fly the team home and at the same time bring the new look of Lufthansa to Seoul for the first time.  If you recall, D-ABYA is the one of the first LH aircraft to sport the new livery design.

Normally, passengers and spotters in Seoul see the 747-400 during this time of year so the regardless of the paint on the plane, seeing the 748 in ‘ICN’ will be a treat for those of us who enjoy this kind of thing!

If you happen to be at the games or at least in Seoul and want to get a glimpse of the bird, the flight is scheduled to depart Seoul (ICN) at 1:05p and is scheduled to arrive in Frankfurt at 4:45p. If you want to catch her arriving in Seoul earlier on Monday, she’s due to land at 8:50a.

 



 

LUFTHANSA Announces Limited A350 Deployment To Seoul For February and March

LUFTHANSA Announces Limited A350 Deployment To Seoul For February and March

Lufthansa Schedule Management updated the timetable for service between Munich and Seoul to reflect the A350 flying the route on certain days in February and March.   These flights are normally operated by the Airbus A340 so it’s interesting that they reduced capacity between MUC and ICN during the Olympics on certain flights.

In February, the A350 is scheduled to fly from Munich to Seoul on:

February 1,  February 4, February 5, February 8, February 15, February 19, and February 22.

In March, the A350 will fly between Munich and Seoul on:

March 5, March 8, March 12, March 15, March 19, and March 22.

This latest update comes after Lufthansa had previously assigned the A350 to Seoul for this coming February, only to cancel plans back in May 2017.   Apparently they changed their minds and decided to bring the A350 to Seoul at least for a handful of flights.
