LUFTHANSA Increases Flights For 52 European Destinations This Spring/Summer

Lufthansa has updated their summer timetable to reflect a wide variety of increased flights to a majority of their European destinations.   This update suggests that LH is substantially increasing flights and capacity for the Summer of 2018 as compared to their 2017 timetable for the same period.   The changes reflect service from Frankfurt and Munich.

LUFTHANSA Aircraft Deployment Strategy For Winter 2015/16

LUFTHANSA Aircraft Deployment Strategy For Winter 2015/16

 

Each year, airlines review and revise the aircraft that they deploy on certain routes due to seasonal demands.

For Lufthansa, this means a wide ranging overhaul covering a significant part of their long haul network.  The list below is their initial update and if history teaches us anything, it is by far not their last amendment for the Winter timetable.   I’ll provide updates as they become available.

For the time being, if you already have bookings that are affected by these changes, you should review your seat assignments.  In many cases, when there is an aircraft change seat assignments become ‘unassignments’.

 

Frankfurt – Atlanta:  The A340-600 will fly daily beginning October 25.   Previous plans called for a mix of A330 / A340 aircraft.

Frankfurt – Boston:  The 744 will replace the 747-8i beginning October 25 (LH422/423).

Frankfurt – Detroit: The A340-600 will fly the route daily.  Previous plans call for the 744.

Frankfurt – Doha – Muscat:  Beginning January 24 the A340-300 will replace the A330-300 on daily basis.

Frankfurt – Hong Kong: Beginning October 25, the A380 will replace the 747-8 on a daily basis.

Frankfurt – Johannesburg: Beginning October 25, the 747-8i will replace the A380 on a daily basis.

Frankfurt – Kuala Lumpur – Jakarta:  The A340-300 will continue the route (5x/week).  Previous plans called for a 744.

Frankfurt – Mumbai: The 744 will continue the route (1x/day).  Previous plans called for the A380.

Frankfurt – New York (JFK):  Beginning October 25, LH404 and LH405 will be flown by an A340-600.  Previous plans called for a 744.    LH400/401 will be operated by a 747-8i.

Frankfurt – Seattle: Beginning October 25, the A340-300 will replace the 747-400.

Frankfurt -Seoul (ICN): Beginning October 25, the 747-8i will replace the A380.
