Lufthansa Flights Resume For Airbus A380 To New York JFK


Lufthansa has resumed operations with their A380 to New York JFK following a three-year hiatus, which saw the superjumbo placed in long-term storage. After resuming A380 flights to Boston last month, the German carrier will also relaunch Lufthansa flights to Los Angeles and Bangkok this winter.

Lufthansa Flights Return To New York

The airline’s A380 can seat up to 509 passengers across four cabin classes. Eight in first class, 78 in business, 52 in premium economy and 371 in economy. The giant jet returns just in time for the summer high season and will offer a welcome 80% boost in capacity compared to Lufthana’s Airbus A340, which previously served this route.

The A380 will fly to and from New York daily from July 4th until October 27th. This is the first of the airline’s A380s to exit storage and also the operator of Lufthansa’s first returning A380 flight to Boston last month.

As Lufthansa revealed back in April, the A380 will return regularly on its routes to New York JFK and Boston Logan International Airport this summer. It redeployed its A380s to Boston on June 1st, representing its first flights with the double-decker since the pandemic.

Come October, Lufthansa will shift its A380s over to its Los Angeles and Bangkok routes for the winter season. The airline will begin A380 flights to Los Angeles International Airport on October 5th through March 30th, 2024, while A380 flights to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport will relaunch on October 28th until March 30th, 2024.
