I am planning on flying from Mia to Fra in May/June 2012. Just checked their website and it says that they will be using the 747! Is that right?? I thought it is a year round A380 service from/to Miami

Thanks for the help

Yes it certainly looks that way. Until the end of March 2012 its an A380 then with the new Summer timetable its going back to B747-400. Bit of a shame really unless they intend to change it to A380 at later date.

Same story for JFK. I looked through LH's schedule and it looks like the 3PM Departure to FRA will be operated by a 744 instead of the A388. Could this possibly change? Or are they using their A380 on other routes?



It's a cultural thing.

I hope this will change to the A380 again. I can't find any information that Miami will be a 747 again for the summer. Might just contact Lufthansa directly to confirm!

May/June 2012.

Interesting but it might be a little early to trust lh.com aircraft schedule for that far in advanced. Wonder if anyone else has some good info?

I guess it is too early to actually tell if it is 380 or 744. The schedule for summer 2012 is still being made and I am pretty sure that it will remain on 380 from the loads I have seen.

So lets wait a little while until the summer 2012 comes closer...

Was waiting to see what you thought. I agree a bit too early. And it seems as though the A380 has been doing great on FRA-MIA

There are no plans to revert back to a 744. The schedule for summer 2012 is a dummy schedule overlay of the summer 2011 schedule


a.

That makes me feel a lot better. Can't wait to fly on the A380. Btw it was great to see the A380 in Orlando as well. It diverted on its way to Miami. I think that happened twice already.

Obviously it is just galley chat, but flying FRA-JFK two weeks ago I was chatting with the cabin staff and according to them LH management is very happy with all three of their current US A380 destinations. The only destination worldwide that may not see the A380 again next summer is J'burg.

Take the above with a heaping bucketful of salt as it just a purser and some flight attendants relaying what they have heard, but still good for something.
