With DUS established as an A-340-300 base and MUC-EWR upgauged to an A-330 operation, the PrivatAir 319 and BBJ are moved.
For the summer schedule 2008 they will be employed on MUC-DXB and FRA-EWR. The latter will stay for the winter schedule 2008/2009, while the a/c operating MUC-DXB will be moved to MUC-BOS. This will finally establish year-around service between Bavaria and New England, so far it has been a summer only 343 route.
PrivatAir will also continue to operate ZRH-EWR with 737BBJ during both scheduling periods.
Any other routes on the horizon?
I am sure LX has been closely examining either a GVA-IAD or a GVA-ORD service.
Are you hinting on a non-stop service from Milano Malpensa to the US?
This would not only take advantage of AZ reducing its capacity there by focusing on FCO but would also further foster LH's stronghold in Northern Italy (MUC is sometimes called Italy's best hub and has numerous Air Dolomiti connections)
