Lufthansa, the biggest airline among foreign airliners at TLV, which didn't suffer a decline but even managed to increase its TLV operations over the last few years, unlike most of the airlines which suffered a sharp decrease in operation to TLV because of the Intifada, has reviled its plans regarding its unsuccessful TLV-MUC route; "In response to the sharp fall in passenger bookings, particularly on routes to America and Asia, the Lufthansa Executive Board announced cuts in the airline's capacity. As a result our 3 weekly flights between Tel Aviv and Munich will be canceled as from 01 May 2003. Lufthansa will continue operating it's 2 daily flights from Tel-Aviv to Frankfurt and from there to the rest of the world." (taken from LH website)

Lufthansa was seeking for a few years a government permission to fly daily to TLV from MUC aside of the airline twice daily FRA-TLV services.
Flights from MUC to TLV were flown 3 times a week.
LH even upgraded the route 2 years ago to an A343, but since then the route was downgraded to the smallest A319, which can not offer the same luxury LH can give with its A340.

At the moment LH flies a daily 744 (LH686/7) and a daily A343 (LH690/1) to TLV from FRA, however, during May the airline would replace the equipment and both flights will be operated with A332, which are not equipped with F/cl.
Also until May 1st, the airline flies 3 times a week from MUC to TLV with A319.
