Yes, there was mention of that in the Mexican aviation thread and perhaps there was even a separate thread about it. I think there has been no official confirmation or anything. I have to say I am feeling a bit skeptical at the moment, mostly because of the lack of information and the fact that we are already in June.
I think the flight is warranted. MUC is an awesome airport for connections, and LH seems to have very good loads (and presumably yields) to/from MEX. On the other hand, I think there was mention that LH might add more frequencies from FRA, which would mean no new service from MUC. That, too, is just rumors I guess.
Finally, something I want to just mention (I have no opinion on this) is that some a.netters have mentioned in the recent past a few times that LH's business to/from MEX (and Mexico in general) declined a bit due to the demise of MX. It seems MX, which despite its oneworld membership continued to codeshare with LH, was a good feeder for the LH flights, and also helped LH quite a bit funnel pax to secondary destinations in Mexico. I guess LH now would have to rely on CO at IAH.
