Unless the board has changed their mind since their Capital Markets Day presentation in June, Nicknuzzii is right. Eurowings should be completely out of long-haul by end of 2020.LH779 wrote:There will still be EW long haul op by SN out of DUS.
There will be new EW long haul flights op by XG out of FRA and MUC. There should be an announcement soon. If they are to start RSW from FRA or MUC I would expect it to be operated by XG.
Lufthansa's Capital Markets Day presentation back in June did not leave much room for interpretation. Eurowings out of long-haul by end of 2020, period. I'm guessing if they start new flights now, it would be for a tour operator or similar outfit...Lufthansa wrote:Eurowings long-haul: transfer of commercial responsibility to the Network Organization

EW actually never flew long haul themselves. They are using XG and SN for it.
Here is another german article about EW-long haul: Link
EW will continue to fly long haul, but only as a brand. The flights will be operated by XG (FRA/MUC) and SN (DUS), marketing and distribution will be done by LH. Customers won't notice the change, everything will be done behind the scenes.Jet-lagged wrote:EDMD - welcome to the site!
