Why? It's not a major market. I highly doubt that ever launches. PHL-FRA has historically not been the best for them; even saw their low-cost "Jump" service for a bit.
Why? As a defensive measure against AA's moves in CLT. I don't see it happening, but it's an interesting possibility. Something will give - I can't see CLT sustaining all that service. Will there be a truce?
It isn't very accurate to describe Jump as low cost. No product difference, only internal cost-saving measures and a different premium cabin mix. In any case, it's ending. It does mean that LH was serving a lower volume of J clientele, but it's still a LH aircraft with the same solid premium product thaf beats most of the other offers across the pond.
