I will also be used on the new Munich-Delhi route (thrice weekly). My understanding is that LH now only uses one Lauda/TCA Boeing 767-300 and this one will be replaced by an Airbus A340-300 sometime in 2004.

Airsicknessbag, how do you justify your comment? Or is is it just a free affirmation from your part? Can you explain? Low yield? We are curious.

The 767-300ER is in a high-density, 2-class configuration. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the 763ERs are, indeed, meant to be on lower-yielding services. They have perviously served ATL-FRA and the now discontinued PHX-FRA. Until recently, they were flying MIA-MUC (which is now an A340-300).

Additionally to what MAH4546 correctly said, LH stated that they had no intention to do away with F class. But they´d deploy those planes in two class layouts to low yield routes on which the occupants of F seats were mostly upgrades.

"It does not take a genius to figure out...."

So glad to know that you are a genius....and I am not.

Would be great if people instead of posting "Three words" post would simply include some more info. Does not take a genius to figure this one out.
