The first LH A380 will be called Munich. The name has been chosen due to the fact that 18,000 watched the first A380 landing in Munich.

well, it's not because 18,000 people watched the landing of the A380, it is more a present by LH to the city of Munich. The city will celebrate it's 850th anniversary and LH has very good connections to the city therefore they are going to brand one of the first A380s with the name of the city.

What will happen to D-ABVL after that? Actually this B747 carries the name...

Does anybody know when we can expect to see "Munich" in service?.

The ironic thing is that I don't see MUC being an A380 base. Maybe I'm being too naive but I've always had this mental picture in my head of MUC being full of A333/A343/A346s flying in all directions.

They used to say in the summer of 2009 but in the article it says "in 2009". On LH's official homepage it says delivery in summer 2009: http://a380.lufthansa.com/en/index.php . Useless to mention that Airbus is currently reviewing the schedule for the deliveries in 2009.

Read carefully, even in your own language!  Wink
The text says, that one of the first A380 will be called "München", not specifically the first one...

Yeah it does say one of the first.

FRA will get the first LH A380 right?

I believe all 380s will be based in FRA. I know they tested Terminal 2 in MUC for the 380. IMO it does not seem likely to happen.

Once they get a couple of A380s they might base one in MUC, I suppose.

I think it would be mandatory that Bavarian pilsner be served, by the liter, on any airplane named "Munich." The A380's heavy lifting capacity will enable the loading of additional pilsner, right?  Silly

I've heard quite a few places that the first LH route would be FRA-JFK, but I could be wrong. Otherwise, maybe someplace in Asia?

Would make more sense that they shift 744s back to MUC.

AFAIK, it is supposed to be FRA-LAX

As far as I know, there is no shortage of (free) German beer on LH flights... if you drink alcohol/beer, flying with an European airline is a highly comfortable experience... I like Y+ on UA and full 0.33L cans of coke/apple juice Big grin



There's no better way to travel than fly (shameless rip of LH's slogan ;-)

The JFK route would make sense. Can't wait till the day when we see a couple of A380s at JFK.

Actually, they will almost always be 355 ml cans, which equate to the larger 12 oz size that is standard here in the US  Wink

ah, silly me... still thinking in Euro measurements... well, you can take a European and put it in imperial country, but he/she will still be European. At least as far as usage of SI measurements and Euro-can sizes is concerned  Wink

No no.... no A380's with us in MUC for a looong loooong time.... (until FRA's greed is satisfied!)


Btw. LH internal rumor: They're going to call it 'Munich' as a consolation for MUC for not getting any of those whales based on their grounds. Cheeky way of thinking, I know.... but makes you ponder, right?
It's like.... "look what I've got and what you have not!!" haha...
After all, the open secret rivalism between FRA LH and MUC LH is still alive and kickin' and that won't change any time soon.

Aaah bless.... internal competition Big grin

I note that LH do not now operate JumboJets from MUC, so the probability that LH would operate WhaleJets from MUC is vanishingly small. It's a safe bet that all LH WhaleJets will be operated from FRA. I even doubt that LH will operate the 747-8I from MUC.

That is the most reasonable answer. Tradition has it, and why change that, the first "new" flagship is named after Berlin.

That would seem like the most logical naming sequence. It might be just me but I really like individual aircraft to have their own name. Like when BA had "City of X" and "River X".

The LH "flagships" are usually named after the federal states and major cities of Germany. The 707, 747-200 and 747-400 all carried the name "Berlin" although for a long time LH did not even fly there and even after LH 747s are very, very rare.

Well i think MUC will become a much more important hub for Lufthansa in the future... Frankfurt can't really be expanded anymore an with the construction of a third runway at MUC and a new satellite terminal in the future i think that Lufthansa will move more and more capacity to MUC, to relieve the congestion at FRA.. In a few years i expect MUC will overtake FRA in passenger numbers...


Next Flights: LHR-OSL (319-BA), OSL-LHR (319-BA), LHR-CPH (320-BA), VXO-BMA (S20-TF), ARN-CPH (738-SK), CPH-LHR (320-BA)
