The list of Lufthansa A380 destinations in the USA is growing: Miami will be
the next US destination to be served by the carrier¹s flagship A380,
following New York-JFK and San Francisco. Starting 10 June 2011, Lufthansa
will be operating daily A380 flights from Frankfurt to the “sunshine state”
The world¹s largest passenger aircraft is replacing a Boeing 747-400 currently serving this route, utilising the existing flight numbers LH 462 and LH 463. The cabin accommodating a total of 526 passengers will be configured with eights seats in First Class, 98 in Business Class and 420 in Economy Class, all in unprecedented comfort.
Fares on the A380 flights will be the same as the regular price on this connection. The all-inclusive round-trip fare from Frankfurt is available from 787 eu-ros. Miami will additionally be served daily from Zurich by SWISS with an Airbus A340. During the winter flight schedule Lufthansa will resume direct flights to Miami from Dus-seldorf with an Airbus A330-300, initially in early October with three weekly flights, in-creasing to daily service from November.
Lufthansa will be the first airline to operate A380 at Miami International
Airport. When the eighth A380 comes into service provisionally in May, the
A380-fleet will be operating 84 long-haul flights weekly, logging more than
half a million kilometres. Each week more than 44,000 passengers around the
world will be able to fly with Lufthansa¹s new flagship.
For more than 30 years Lufthansa has had a presence at Miami Airport,
popular alike with leisure and business travellers. The flights with A380 to
San Francisco begin on 10 May. The inclusion of Miami in the flight
schedule as the third A380 destination in the USA will allow a daily 3,156
passengers to fly on the flagship across the Atlantic.
