Will Lufthansa Bring A346 Back To LAX-FRA?

Fri Jan 13, 2012 10:56 pm

I know they did like 2 summers ago, wondering if they may do it for summer of 2012 (although I see on booking sites its 2 744s). If they go to an A380 LAX to FRA would they then do A346 for the second flight?

More likely to go 748 and 744, then eventually two 748s.

Quoting ikramerica (Reply 1):

When are the 748's due to be delivered to LH?

Sadly right after I fly LH to Europe and back... March I think? Will need 2 to cover LAX, rotated with an East Coast route, possibly EWR with UA/CO merger complete? Not sure about the timing.

Looks like double 744 again.

748 maybe. One will be delivered in March, 2 in June, one in July, one in September.

Chances of 346 are low at the moment. But with several new frames joining the fleet, changes are highly possible.

Much rather they stick with 747s

Ah nice! I was expecting it to be further into the year before deliveries for the 748 Intercontinental started. It look's so nice in the Lufthansa livery. The LH livery just seem's to work on the 747 so well.
