This isn’t new news, but a firm date is finally available for this service.
From September 13 2012, service between Bangalore and Frankfurt will be on Lufthansa’s brand new 747-8i aircraft, sporting Lufthansa’s newest product.
This is just one of the many steps Lufthansa has taken to improve its product on Indian routes. Lufthansa has also:
- Launched service to Delhi on 747-8i (August 6)
- Opened a new lounge at Delhi Terminal 3 (August 13)
- Announced retrofit A330 (with new Business Class) on Munich-Mumbai route (September 2)
- Continued adding PTVs in Economy Class to 747-400s serving India (continuous)
Looks like Lufthansa is really buckling down and trying to capture more of the Indian market.
