LH Delaying A346 On YYZ Route Till March

Lufthansa has pushed back the introduction of the A340-600 with the new Business Class to at least March 18 on the Frankfurt to Toronto route.

The flights with the new aircraft were supposed to commence on January 30 and LH had taken out many newspaper ads touting the launch of the new Business Class product on this route. Alas, the flights will now be operated by an A340-300 with the old business class until March 17.

I'm not amused, having specifically picked LH metal over AC metal to try out the new business class for a trip in February. Bait-and-switch is all I can say.....

Tks for the info Sean. It will be good to see the LH 346 at YYZ.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Is there a problem with the A/c or was this a business decision?

I was looking for a flight on the LH 346 for February to YYZ. Luckily the website I was at didn't tell me I could fly on one.
I wish they would have been on that route earlier.
At least this way I get to try Air France.



Where have all the tri-jets gone...

Most likely Airbus delivery delays if VS and SA are anything to go by.
Is YYZ-FRA now 2 daily LH 332 with 1 flight being upgraded to the 343/6 in the summer?If so,is it the earlier flight?
Cheers,Alex

No, since January 11th, LH has only one daily 343 flight and AC has two. At least at 5 days a week. That's also the summer sked so far.

Is it a sure thing they'll introduce the A346 on March 18 to YYZ? I'm supposed to fly LH in April from YYZ, I hope I get to try the new Airbus.

Does this mean that LH will also delay the introduction of the A346 on the FRA-YVR route? I know they were supposed to start on Feb. 8th.

I'm not amused either, seeing as how I'm flying LH CPH-FRA-YYZ on Feb 10. I was so looking forward to experiencing the new 600 series (I had selected 44K, with tons of legroom). I too picked LH over AC equipment due to the LHA340-600. Damn!

"Most likely Airbus delivery delays if VS and SA are anything to go by."

But LH has already taken delivery of several -600's. Are these delivered aircraft slated for routes other than YYZ/YUL?

Three A346´s have been delivered so far (-HA,-HB,-HC). They are being used on the FRA-EZE-SCL and FRA-KIX runs.

Sorry to hear you´ll be missing the A346 but hey, they´ll be around for a long time so you´ll get a lot more chances as time passes by.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
