LH probably wants to see if the frequency increase will have a positive effect on the whole longhaul system.
|Quoting N754PR (Reply 10):|
LX just cancelled their own A343's still on order.
|Quoting YUL332LX (Reply 12):|
They did cancel in 2003 a couple of 343s on order but last month, they were reconsidering the possibility of adding two 343s to increase frequency to the existent network.
So, LH has actually nothing to do with this rumour/decision
|Quoting ZRH" class=quote target=_blank>ZRH (Thread starter):|
In the today's Sonntags Zeitung of Zurich there is an article about the LH/LX deal. They write that LH offered that Swiss stays a company (not only brand) within the LH group and that it should get two extra A 340 (which would make 20 long-haul aircrafts, 9 330-200, 11 340-300) to serve Shanghai, Singapore direct, Buenos Aires and an other destination in north America (not named). If it was true it would be interesting. But how long would this last?
|Quoting AirMale (Reply 17):|
Why would LX want to get back into IAD? It is already operated by UA on a daily basis...... a double daily to IAD would be too much...
|Quoting Johnnybgoode (Reply 20):|
i realize that the article mentions two A343s, but what about the two ex-LX A332s that LH still operates?
|Quoting ZRH (Reply 14):|
Now, when LH agrees to expand the long-haul network of LX, it becomes possible. For this it has actually something to do with LH
|Quoting ZRH (Reply 27):|
The network will be completely integrated and network management made in FRA.
|Quoting A350 (Reply 28):|
They could be used for destinations like NRT there LH suffers a lack of slots.
|Quoting JoFMO (Reply 32):|
LH has no problem with slots in China.
