Lufthansa Adding Daily A380 Service From Miami To Munich

Lufthansa is planning to fly the Miami to Munich route with an Airbus A380 next winter.

It will replace the Miami to Frankfurt A380 route, which will be downgraded to an A340-600.

According to the airline’s most recent flight plan, the final A380 on Miami-Frankfurt is scheduled October 26, with daily Miami-Munich A380 service to begin the next day (the schedule was uploaded late last month and can still change).

The airline is currently engaged in a dispute with the operator of Frankfurt airport, causing a shift of A380 service to Munich. Lufthansa has flown the Miami to Frankfurt route with an A380 since 2011, and was the first airline to fly the double-decker jet to MIA.

Lufthansa’s A380 has capacity for 509 passengers, while the A340-600 can carry 281 passengers.

Flights to Dusseldorf or Cologne next winter are not yet available for sale, although those routes could be flown by Lufthansa-subsidiary Eurowings, which likely won’t release a winter schedule for several months. Eurowings said last month that Miami had a high proportion of business travelers and would be among the first with their new business class product.

During the winter schedule, Miami also sees daily A380s on Air France from Paris and on British Airways from London.

Damn was hoping for double A380 service from Lufthansa. Seeing the A380 take off over Brickell/Downtown in the evenings is always a beautiful sight.

Going to miss flying into FRA airport. The first class terminal is truly a wonderful experience.

Tragic that the terminals in Europe and Asia and even some developing countries are so very advanced versus what we have here… Although Detroit metro is not a bad experience at all….

Indeed, and while the morons up in New York are rebuilding LGA’s terminals, the runways and obsolete (too small for landing new aircraft), instead of closing and selling it, using the money to upgrade JFK.

They drive you to the plane in a private limo at JFK if connecting? Because I have while connecting in FRA.

Lufthansa is not discontinuing Miami-Frankfurt. You can still fly into FRA, just not on an A380.

I’m really gonna miss the A340-600. Best airplane on the planet in my opinion. Especially LH’s version.
