I heard it too, but to another question he responded with saying they have 4 hubs in Europe ; FRA, MUC, VIE and Copenhagen. He must have included SAS and Austrian or he might have been talking about Star Alliance too. Austrian (Lauda) flies to Australia and there is a codeshare for sure.

Flanders + Wallonnia + Brussels = the UNITED STATES of BELGIUM

Hi Andreas... I guess you're right - and I just thought about it again: with North & South America, Europe, Africa and Asia, you already get 5 continents served by LH anyhow - so, indeed, you're right: no return likely.

I don't see them in Australia. In general most European carriers (exept from UK) have had problems to operate succesful to OZ. I can only think of OS from the Continent.
Traffic to OZ is low yield, many tourists and most of them very low yielding back packer.
LH is doing fine with it's SQ and OS codeshare to Australia, so why change?

I read a post regarding the same topic here on A.net three months ago, it is possible that LH returns to Australia with their own metal when they get the A 380's. Here is the post from this thread (reply #7):
according to travelbiz.com.au, the Lufthansa General Manager for Australia stated that LH is examing the feasibility of deploying the A380 on routes to Australia. apparently, the lower seat costs of this huge bird suggest to LH that a return down under could be viable.

If referring to the "five continents" then it includes Asia, Europe, Africa, the Americas and Australia. Best example is the symbol for the Olympics. If you are seeing it geographically than there are seven continents (Asia, Europe, Africa, N-America, S-America, Australia and Antarctica).
