A few days ago, I wrote about the teething troubles Lufthansa was facing with starting their A380 operations to India. First, their Mumbai plans got nixed with Emirates getting the slot. Then, someone threw the rulebook in their face and the paperwork to bring the A380 flights to Delhi was not completed in time for the winter schedule cutover, which was implemented a week ago.
Anyhow, I’m glad to report the mess is now sorted, and Lufthansa is all set to fly their maiden A380 flight to Delhi today.
Here is how the schedule will look like going forward for Lufthansa’s Delhi service with the A380.
LH760 FRA1340 – 0130+1DEL 388 D
LH761 DEL0330 – 0720FRA 388 D
That makes Emirates, Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines as the 3 operators to India with their A380s. Any guesses on who will be next?
