Reply To: Lufthansa’s A380: top or flop ?Back to Forum
some recent updates. The first A380 will be expected in Hamburg for the finishing touches in interiors and livery painting early Oct. 2009.
Around March 2010 the first fully fitted and equipped A380 will be officially given to LH. So LH will be planning to go fully commercial with the first A380 around end of April/May 2010.
Which will be the first destinations, is absolutely hard to find out!! LH makes a really big mystery about it( commercial tactics–who knows?), this goes as well for the premium cabin seatings. I think most of you all (especially “Hansa” enthusiasts) know already that the premium configuration will be the same as in the ordered “B747 new gen”. It would be less than the previous F class 16 seats in the existing configuration. And F cabin is said to going up front the plane as most F cabins are in a B747.
I personally do not mind the big mystery over the premium cabin configuration as long as LH has done its homework and hopefully will not do any stupid mistakes!
