Never Say Never: A380 Makes Dramatic Comeback at Lufthansa



The Airbus A380 superjumbo is making an unexpected and dramatic comeback at Lufthansa. The deutsch airline is reactivating the Airbus A380 in response to steep rise in customer demand and to make up for the delayed delivery of ordered aircraft.


The airline expects to use the long-haul aircraft, which is popular with customers and crews, again from summer 2023. The company is currently assessing how many A380s will be reactivated and which destinations the Airbus will fly to.


Lufthansa still has 14 Airbus A380s, which are currently parked in Spain and France for long-term so called “deep storage”. Six of these aircraft have already been sold, while eight of the A380s remain part of the Lufthansa fleet for the time being.


In addition to bringing back the A380s, Lufthansa will further strengthen and modernize its fleets with some 50 new Airbus A350, Boeing 787 and Boeing 777-9 long-haul aircraft and more than 60 new Airbus A320/321s in the next three years alone.


Following the global COVID-19 pandemic, airlines had grounded their A380 fleet, including Lufthansa which saw off its last A380 in September 2021 as it made her final flight from Frankfurt to Spain for long-term storage.


The return of the Airbus A380 to Lufthansa is both dramatic and unexpected as the airline had repeatedly said that it had permanently said goodbye to the gas-guzzling superjumbo for good.


The Airbus A380 is the world's largest passenger aircraft. It is 73 meters long and 24 meters high, and can seat a total of 509 passengers in Lufthansa's configuration.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
