BOS-FRA LH 1st Class In A340 Question

Thu Jun 10, 2004 2:48 am

Hi everybody,

I just booked a 1st class ticket (with miles) between BOS and FRA on LH. It will be an
A340 on both legs. I was wondering whether it will be a LH A340 with their own 1st class
or end up flying on an ex-Sabena or ex-Swissair one with substandard seats.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Regards,

Tony

I have yet to see an ex-Sabena/Swissair at BOS.

The BOS-AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA route is pretty important for LH, so I don't think they'd put a different A340 product on it. They have 2 flights, one departing at 16h25 the other at 19h40.
Bonjour Chef!

The ex SN and SR planes are not equipped with a First Class, only Biz and Eco.

Flpuck6,

It's the 16h25 flight I'm getting on. I actually flew on an ex-Sabena A330 on that route
sometime ago (very shortly after they had got it if I remember).

Sabena,

Thanks, I was not aware of that.

Both,

Thanks for the extremely speedy replies!!!!!!

Regards,

Tony

SNATH, of course the 330 you flew on was an ex-Sabena. They have been using D-AIME and AIMC on the MUC-BOS-MUC route ... last winter they used the 330s on the AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA route.

You should have an LH-LH 340. As Sabena332 said, the ex-Sabena are only 2-classes. They wouldn't dare sell you an F class seat on a 2-class aircraft! LOL.
Bonjour Chef!

Flpuck6,

Yes, I think it was last winter that I flew on the A330.

Anyway, thanks for the reassuring words on the plane being a LH one! I'm really looking
forward to the LH 1st class service, as I usually fly economy!

Regards,

Tony
