While you’ll still be able to catch a Lufthansa A380 at LAX, you’ll now need to travel to a different city.

For the next two months, the sole daily Frankfurt flight will be operated by an A340-600:
On May 17th, Lufthansa will resume it second daily service to Los Angeles, utilizing a 747-8:
During the past few summers, Lufthansa has alternated the A380 and 747-8 on LH456/457, with the evening LH451/452 always a 747-8.
All aircraft will maintain first class cabins.
We’ll also see the A380 shift from Frankfurt to Munich this summer on the following routes:
- Hong Kong
- Los Angeles
Munich has a beautiful new international terminal that is not operating at capacity. By directing more connecting traffic via Munich, Lufthansa hopes to strengthen its second major hub.
