The Lufthansa Airbus A380 Returns to Boston and New York

Lufthansa is gearing up for the 2023 summer season. This time the german aviation giant will be hoping not repeat the caos and mayhem that marked the 2022 summer season. To accomodate the summer traffic from the United States to Europe LH will deploy on two of its main east coast destinations its largest airliner.

That’s right german flag carrier Lufthansa is bringing back the Airbus A380 to the US east coast. Starting June 1st 2023, the LH Airbus A380 will resume its regular connection between Munich international airport and Boston.

The flight number LH424 which at the moment is served with an Airbus A340-600 will be upgraded to the much larger A380. It’ll continue to be a daily flight just with a much larger plane. Specifically LH424 flies from Munich to Boston following this schedule:

  • Every day LH424 takes off from Munich (MUC) at 15:50 and lands into Boston (BOS) at 18:20.
  • The return flight LH425 takes off from Boston (BOS) at 20:05 and lands into Munich (MUC) at 09:35 the next morning.

Starting July 4th 2023 the Munich to New York JFK flight will also see the same upgrade take place. Lufthansa flight LH410 will pass from an A340-600 to the Airbus A380. In this case the flight will every day:

  • Take off as LH410 from Munich (MUC) at 12:25 and land in New York (JFK) at 16:40
  • The return flight LH411 will take off from New York (JFK) at 17:25 and land into Munich (MUC) at 07:15 the next morning.

A Much Appreciated Upgrade

No need to say that this will be a much appreciated upgrade by Lufthansa passengers. In all cabins the Airbus A380 offers a much more comfortable and relaxing travel experience when compared to any other airliner. From the airline’s point of view the upgrade allows to increase capacity on two strategic sectors without having to add another flight to two highly congested airports.
