Lufthansa A380 Returns with Services to Boston and New York
Lufthansa's Airbus A380 is set to return to commercial operations. From 1 June, 2023, Lufthansa will resume its regular A380 flights after a three-year interruption. Daily flights from Munich to Boston will be operated by the A380 as Flight LH424.
Just in time for Independence Day, the U.S. national holiday, an A380 with the flight number LH410 will take off daily for New York to John F. Kennedy International Airport from July 4, 2023.
The airline is thus noticeably expanding its premium offering at its southern hub, especially with additional seats in Business and First Class.
With 509 seats, the A380 has around 80% more capacity than the Airbus A340-600 currently flying on the Munich-New York route. In total, the A380 offers four classes of travel: 8 seats in First Class, 78 seats in Business Class, 52 seats in Premium Eco and 371 seats in Economy Class.
Due to the significant increase in travel demand and delayed delivery of ordered aircraft, Lufthansa had, in 2022, decided to reactivate the Airbus A380, which is popular with passengers and crews.
By the end of 2023, Lufthansa will be flying a total of four Airbus A380 aircraft from Munich. Flights on the A380 are already bookable across all booking platforms.
