No LH 346 On NRT-MUC?

At the end of this month I will fly DUS-FRA-NRT and a few days later back to DUS via MUC on LH. Since I am booked in Business Class, I was already looking forward to get one of LH's brand new A 340-600 with the new Business Class interior on the return flight (I read on the LH website that the 346 will serve the NRT-MUC route from April 19, 2004).

Today I finally received my tickets for the trip, and a few minutes ago I just took a quick look into Amadeus (checkmytrip) but there I saw that an A 340-300 is listed for the flight.

Who is correct now, the Lufthansa or the Amadeus website? I hope that it is a mistake by Amadeus. Can anyone enlighten me?

Thanks in advance!

Patrick

I think you could probably call Lufthansa and ask them what plane you will be flying on. I have had situations like this in the past. The airline website would say I am flying on a certain type of aircraft and then Amadeus would show a different plane. Every single time Amadeus was wrong. I can't guarantee you anything but given my experiences I would trust the airline website.

About 3 months ago I flew KIV-BUD on Moldavian Airlines. The flight is operated on a SAAB 340 every single day of the week except Sunday when the airline uses SAAB 2000. I looked on Amadeus and it said that Moldavian Airlines is using SAAB 2000 on that route every single day. Well, they were totally wrong. The F/A confirmed that when I got on the plane.

I just called the LH reservation hotline, they also have the 343 in the system, seems that Amadeus is correct  Angry.

Ok, I don't have to pay a single Cent for the flights, so I should not complain  Big thumbs up. Until now I only flew three times in Business Class on an intercontinental flight, so I give a damn if it is the old or the new one (although it would be nicer to get LH's new C on the return flight  Big grin).

Edit: By the way, thanks a lot for the replies, guys!

Sorry to hear that you´ll probably miss the A346, Patrick.

But: Aren´t there a few A343s around that have been equipped with the new C-Class product (the ones that have been D-checked at ZRH recently come to my mind)???

Hi Daniel,

I didn't know that there are already a few 343's with new Business Class interior around, but I know my luck, I will get a 343 in the old configuration.

Such situations happen always to me, for example:

  • I have Biz Class (ID) tix, but I end up in Eco on two flights

  • I tried to fly thrice on the CR7 but every time I was a victim of a last minute equipment change, finally I got it on the fourth try

  • I only booked a DUS-CDG-DUS flight to get a ride on the A 318 but I got an A 320

  • I booked a flight from JNB to CPT to get another ride on the 727 (only had one before) but I found myself on a 734


  • Anyway, wish me luck  Big thumbs up.

    Patrick

    I'm actually flying MUC-NRT on the 29th April. I expect it will be a 343, but I'm flying back through Frankfurt from Osaka . . . you don't think I'd miss a 346!

    Is MUC-NRT due to be served by A346?

    I am on the flight on 8 June 2004.

    No, LH plans early 2005 with A346 on this route.

    Sorry to disappoint you but the only A346 based in MUC flies to SFO!
    You could change your ticket to DUS-FRA-YVR-NRT!
    btw what have you done to fly for free to NRT?

    Great news, I don't care if the plane will be the 343 or the 346 because I already flew on both, more important is the new C Class.

    No, LH plans early 2005 with A346 on this route.

    But they wrote April 19, 2004 on their website.

    You could change your ticket to DUS-FRA-YVR-NRT!

    I would do it, but my travel partners would probably not agree with the rerouting because not everyone is as mad as I am  Big thumbs up.

    btw what have you done to fly for free to NRT?

    I know someone who is working for a big German chemical company which seems to have way too much money to waste Big grin.

    If this matters that much to you, check to see if you can re-route your ticket!
