One thing that caught my attention of the article was this part:
Rather than limiting the route to summer travel, as originally planned, Lufthansa will fly it year-round. An improvement in bookings, due in part to sale fares, "seems to have breathed some new life into it," said Kelsey O'Brien, district sales manager for the German airline.
"I think Lufthansa is confident it can run it throughout the year," she said.
The route will go to five days a week between Oct. 30 and about March 24, however.
I wasn't aware that Lufthansa was originally planning to operate it seasonally. When the service was announced back in November, there was no mention at all that it would be a seasonal service.
Also, the article states that the route will go down to 5x weekly after October 30, however, when I search the schedules, it appears to be daily indefinitely. Going on Lufthansa's website, I can book on all days of the week after October 30 as well.
I have tried to find more information about this, but have found absolutely nothing.
Perhaps this is a mistake in the newspaper?
If it is true however, it's good to see that Lufthansa decided to operate it year-round. 5x weekly is still excellent service.

Many flights that LH starts (especially from MUC) begin their life as seasonal service, some transatlantic flights still ARE seasonal (YUL, BOS). DXB is a winter seasonal, as was MIA (which has been suspended like 2 years ago). I'm quite surprised to see DEN to be a year-round service from the start. Might have something to so with the fact of DEN being a star hub.
