I just noticed that for the last two weeks of December, LH will temporarly cease flying MIA-MUC on Friday, only to resume 5x weekly service in January. Does anyone know the reasoning behind this, is LH sacrificing an aircraft for some other route during these upcoming two weeks?

Quoting miaintl (Reply 4): So LH does not fly on New Years or Christmas, since when has this been happening?
Flights to Europe are empty on Christmas Eve and New Year's. Lufthansa has four flights to MIA on Fridays. It makes perfect sense to not operate one of those.
Many airlines do not operate many flights on these two days, especially trans-Atlantic flights. Miami flights tend to operate because there is a lot of tourist traffic, but you'll find many trans-Atlantic cancellations all over.
