No More LH A340-600 LAX-FRA?

Wed Dec 08, 2010 9:21 pm

Just noticed schedule for summer where the go 2x a day from LAX to FRA, no A340 this time, 744 on both. Is this for whole summer or just brief period I looked up. Are they really projecting a slight increase in demand for 744s on both flights?

LH operated the two flights with 744 for years in summer - exceptionally in 2009 & 2010. Nothing special to me....

Not true, I flew LH450 this summer and it was an A340-600.

so this summer was 2010, wasn't it?
As I meant above: both 744 for years, but only in 2009 and 2010 A346 on the second flight
(sorry, for my bad english: I confused ''expectedly' with 'exceptionally' )

Only one daily LH456/457 LAX-FRA flight for the winter schedule. Starting with summer 2011 schedule there will be 2 daily B744 services. LH450/451 will return with B744 and not like 2009-10 on A346.

No this past summer was Airbus 340-600 on the 7:00pm departure to FRA. I had wanted to book it but didn't get chance and was hoping now for next summer and see its a 747-400.   I was hoping both those 744s would go to A346, lol-not other way around.

Maybe that where the 744 from LH404 FRA-JFK-FRA is going!

Doesn't the A346 have less biz seats? Maybe LH has seen an increase demand in biz traffic and the 744 is a better fit.

That is true.

60-66 on the A346 vs 80 on the 744.
