I wasn't expecting this one. I mean it is quite suprising, don't you think?

Although, now with the new terminal in Munich LH are expanding and adding many flights out of there.

Interesting for those who live in the BC area...

Rgs,

Will this be a codeshare with AC ? Do AC and LH codeshare on the YVR-FRA route? Sorry if this might be a silly question...

I also find it a bit surprising... anyone got the logic behind it?

Good to hear when I go back home to YVR i can go through MUC instead of FRA... perhaps it would be cheaper.

This is a great new service! This will complement nicely the LH existing daily YVR-FRA A340-600.

Extra capacity to Europe is definitely needed from YVR and this is a nice addition.

And with LH building up MUC, these new flights will give more options for connections in Europe (alternative to the daily flights from YVR to LHR, AMS, FRA).

I never actually thought demand for YVR from europe, or to europe was really THAT big. Compared to YVR's asian demand.
Mind you, what am i talking about. I fly from europe to YVR and back twice a year and whatever airline i am flying the plane is always full.

The more the better for YVR! If only CDG was another option...

Scf158,

The logic behind this is the decrease in capacity on YVR-FRA route in summer by switching to 346, instead of the 744. I fly to Europe at least once a year, mainly to Germany or through Germany, and I always have problems getting tickets on LH both ways. And like you said, each time I fly to Europe the planes are filled to capacity. I also keep dreaming and hoping for YVR-CDG.

Anyway this is great news. I would choose anytime MUC over FRA or LHR to transit through. T2 is great.
