Lufthansa A346 Enters Commercial Service

Thu Dec 18, 2003 12:55 am

Hi

After weeks of prooving and testflights, afaik, this monday LH526 was the first commercial flight for an Airbus A340-600 with Lufthansa.
LH526 is FRA-EZE-SCL, great to see the bird make it's first flight into my second homecountry Chile.

... and I bet most people wont even notice or appreciate they are the first passengers on this brand new baby...

Did they fly any domestic runs before taking her across the Atlantic?

Hi,

no, they didn't fly any domestic runs!
The 346 was just doing trainingsessions @ LEJ and FKB!

Wish they would have used it for my flight from FRA-LEJ on 12/2. I must have just missed the practice at LEJ.

Are any dates set for this to fly to YYZ? I heard it would start daily service here!

As far as I konw, YYZ is among the destinations that will see LH´s A346 in the near future.
Currently there are two daily LH flights from FRA to YYZ but they will switch back to one daily in February I think. So that might be the time when the A346 will enter service to Toronto.

Hi Tobi,

I think your chances are very low because they need both A346´s that have been delivered for the FRA-EZE-SCL-EZE-FRA run. Sorry.

ICN is meant to be a LH 346 destination, too.

LH will switch from 2 to 1 fights to YYZ on January 10th. It was supposed to switch to a A346 on this date but it has been postponed to January 30th as per the system. Let's see

Hi,
actually the passengers of the first flight were surprised by a 'Gate-Party' prior to Dep in FRA .Senior LH-Management including the VP for Sales and Marketing were present.

Wow! 279 economy passengers sharing only 6 toilets on a long haul aircraft, and 5 of them are downstairs. This is sub-standard for an airline like LH. 46.5 seats per toilet??? I thought the norm is around 35-40.
