Lufthansa confirms new A320 cabins are coming in 2025

Lufthansa operates somewhere in the region of 80 Airbus A320 aircraft on its short- and medium-haul routes and today, the airline has confirmed (it has been rumored for a while) that a sub-set of these aircraft will be retrofitted with new cabins starting in 2025.

The Lufthansa A380’s are making their comeback on routes to the US

In 2021, Lufthansa's CEO told the world that the airline's A380 would not return from their pandemic-induced grounding and in April 2022, the same CEO reiterated that Lufthansa's A380s were gone for good. Just 3 months later, however, the narrative suddenly changed and the largest passenger aircraft around found itself with a new lease of life within the Lufthansa fleet.

Lufthansa will operate three new routes to the US in 2024

Business travel may not be back to pre-pandemic levels, but that doesn't appear to be a major issue for Lufthansa with the airline announcing three new routes to the US from summer next year (two of which include destinations that the airline has not served in the past).

Save $100 in Lufthansa’s USA Black Friday deal (includes United Airlines codeshares)

We've seen a number of airlines unveil some form of savings or discount in honor of Black Friday but I can't say that any that I've seen have been particularly exciting so far. Sadly, things don't get much more exciting with Lufthansa's Black Friday promotion in which a promo code will get you $100 off most fares. Fortunately, the fact that codeshare flights are eligible for the discount will make this a more useful promotion than it otherwise may have been.
