After browsing the Star Alliance timetable, I see that Lufthansa will start flying the A300 to Beirut (BEY) during the summer season.
Lufthansa used to fly to Beirut (BEY) since the 50's, but suspended the service after the Civil War started in 1975. The Civil War ended in 1990, although it took until 1997 for Lufthansa to restart Beirut (BEY) service. At that time it originally operated 3x a week on an A319. Then it was upgraded to 5x a week on an A319, and for a while now it's been operating as a daily service on A319s.
This summer however, Lufthansa will operate 6x a week on A319, and 1x a week on an A300-600R. A decent capacity increase as the A300s seat 270 passengers, more than there A340-300s.
I thought the A300 was only used on high-density intra-European routes? Or am I mistaken?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
