Airbus A380 flights disclosed by Lufthansa

First Airbus A380 flights are disclosed by Lufthansa for the next summer.

After a three-year absence, Lufthansa is reintroducing the Airbus A380 to its fleet, and the German airline has announced the initial itineraries the aircraft will fly.

Airbus A380s belonging to the carrier will be based at Munich Airport (MUC), beginning operating flights between the German city and New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Boston Logan International Airport (JFK). Beginning on June 1, 2023, Lufthansa will provide a daily service between MUC and BOS, and beginning on July 4, 2023, a daily service will transport passengers between MUC and JFK.

On March 23, 2023, tickets will go on sale. The Lufthansa A380 will have 509 seats in total, divided into four classes: 8 First Class, 78 Business Class, 52 Premium Economy, and 371 Economy Class seats. In 2022, the German airline made the decision to reactivate the Airbus A380 in response to the anticipated increased demand for travel.

This was done in time for the summer travel season. One of the explanations given by Lufthansa for the Super Jumbo’s reactivation was delays in aircraft deliveries.

By the end of 2023, Lufthansa intends to run four Airbus A380s out of MUC, and by the end of 2024, two more of the type will be added. But, the airline does not intend to continue using the double-decker plane in the long run. The firm stated that its long-haul fleet will eventually consist of the Airbus A350-900 and -1000, A330-300, and the Boeing 747-8, 777-300, 777X-9, and 787-9.

Six of the airline’s fourteen A380s will be returned to Airbus by November 2023. Until the COVID-19 epidemic, when Lufthansa deactivated all of its A380s, the company had 14.
