Scandinavia has been the starting point for quite a few good Business Class deals recently (like the great fares to the US West Coast and Qatar Airways' Business Class fares to Asia) and now Star Alliance has joined the party by posting some very good Business Class fares out of Scandinavia for travel to China.
Right now SWISS and Lufthansa are offering some very attractive Business Class fares between London and New Delhi and, considering how respected SWISS' Business Class offering is (Lufthansa less so) these fares are very tempting indeed.
Lufthansa has announced that during the month of July it will be offering its long-haul Business Class passengers the "opportunity to experience what life is like in outer space – at least in culinary terms".
Around two weeks ago British Airways announced that its biometric gate trials have gone so well in Los Angeles that it has rolled them out to Orlando and New York as well...and now Lufthansa is joining in at Los Angeles International Airport too.
Buy on board food options are commonplace on most airlines' short-haul routes all around the world but, when it comes to long-haul flights, it's generally only the low-cost carriers like WOW and Norwegian that ask Economy Class passengers to pay extra for their food. Now it looks like Lufthansa is joining the long-haul buy on board party...but not in a way that should worry fans of the airline.
Lufthansa has announced that it has opened its new lounge at Milan Malpensa airport and, from the information provided by the airline, it looks as if flyers will have a nice new place to relax or get some work done before a flight.
News that Lufthansa is eliminating First Class from two routes to the US (at least for summer 2018), news of a new Hilton opening in a beautiful part of Europe, details of an Emirates schedule change which sees an extension to the cut in service to New York and news that Singapore Airlines has scheduled its new A380 on its routes to London and Hong Kong.
After months of speculation Lufthansa has finally announced the delivery date of its first Airbus A350 aircraft and, at the same time, has now told us when we can expect to the airline's new aircraft makes its first long-haul commercial flight.
Lufthansa is expected to take delivery of its first A350 aircraft this winter but, apart from a few pictures of the airline's first A350 coming out of the paint shop (still without engines), Lufthansa hasn't been very forthcoming with information.
After 11 days in the paint shop Lufthansa's first A350 appeared in full Lufthansa livery for the first time last week and, as I've had a few questions on the blog about Lufthansa's plans for the aircraft, I thought I'd put together a post on what we know so far and what we can surmise from other information available.
