LH Routes Operated By / With 340-600?

Thu May 27, 2004 2:45 am

will be travelling from AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA to SFO and back to MUC in june, with the SFO-MUC leg on 10-jun.
is it correct that LH operate 340-600 on this leg ? the lufthansa.com page does not show the aircraft operating that day....

and while on this, does anybody know if LH already has the new C-class seats installed on their 747-400 ? probably not on all, but with the audience that we have on a.net, probably somebody could tell me if LH454/06 has new seats or the old ones.

thanks upfront

Yes..SFO-MUC is a A346 for the summer. Maybe even year round. That flight originally was seasonal and did so well it went year round with the A340. Now the A346 is on the route to its doing well.

The Seoul flight is, at least for the summer schedule, again operated by the B744, so current A346 routes are:

F RA-YVR
F RA-YYZ
F RA-EZE-SCL
F RA-KIX
MUC-SFO
MUC-PVG-CAN

The AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA flight is a 744-7days,the MUC flight is the beautiful 346-also 7 days. Cheers,Tim (Info obtained from the May'04 OAG Executive Flight Guide)

Are the flights out ouf MUC flown in a triangle with Frankfurt flights? For example F RA-SFO-MUC-SFO-F RA? I remember that that is how Lufthansa did the IAD flights from Berlin and Frankfurt in early 2001 (F RA-IAD-TXL-IAD-F RA). Otherwise they will always have to do repositioning flights between F RA and MUC since all A346's are based at F RA.

Why are there always problems when you type in "F R A" such as this: AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA?

No,the MUC-LAX flight(LH452)is operated with the 343.It arrives @ LAX 2:25PM and departs for MUC @ 4:35PM 7 days(LH 453). Again,according to the current OAG printed flight guide. I also would like to know why AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA typed in a response is listed about 4 ways-not by the member but by the editor;anybody know why? Thanks,Tim
