I don't think LH
will pull GIG
. They now operate a 4-class 747-800, daily. There is room to downgauge to a 3-class 747-400 or a 3-class 340-300.
- I hear this flight is one where F-class is always or almost always full on LH
, and not just with OP-UPGs but with fare paying pax. I have flown the FRA
4 times in the last years and F was always full, C was mostly full, and Y was anything from totally full to half empty. GRU
is both a business destination as well as the biggest Int'l airport in South America and serves South America's biggest city. Since LH
appears to be needing F-class on this route from FRAm this only leaves their 748s to operate this route, the only other aircraft with F-class based in FRA
afre their 330s and they don't have the necessary range, their 346s operate only out of MUC
doesn't seem to be adding the second GRU
flight (the day-flight from ZRH
) this winter, and last winter they flew 10-11 times weekly with 340s, this winter it appears to be 7x weekly mostly with 340s, only sometimes with their new 77Ws (according to their website booking tool).
The American carriers seem to be adding capacity to EZE
while reducing capacity to GRU
, not sure about DL
