Lufthansa Set to Relaunch Airbus A380s Starting Summer 2023

Frankfurt Main, Germany - July 10, 2015: Airbus A380-800 aircraft of the Lufthansa airline landing at the international airport in Frankfurt Main (FRA)

Germany’s flag carrier has said that it plans to reactivate its use of some of its A380s from next summer. This reactivation of this portion of its fleet is partially down to consumer demand.
Lufthansa has announced that it will be returning some of its Airbus A380 fleet into operational use from the summer of 2023.


In a statement, the airline explained that it was bringing the craft back into operation in response to both a sharp increase in customer demand as well as a delay in the delivery of other aircraft currently on order.


At present, Lufthansa has 14 Airbus A380s, but these are currently being stored in France and Spain. Out of these airframes, Lufthansa sold six, leaving eight A380s included in the wider fleet. It is not yet known how many of the six will be reactivated and on what routes they will be deployed. The announcement itself was revealed by the airline’s executive board members in a letter to Lufthansa’s customers.


Revival of Lufthansa’s A380 Heralds Return to Normality

In the summer of 2023, we not only expect to have a much more reliable air transport system worldwide. We will be welcoming you back on board our Airbus A380s, too. We decided today to put the A380, which continues to enjoy great popularity, back into service at Lufthansa in summer 2023. In addition to this, we are further strengthening and modernizing our fleets with some 50 new Airbus A350, Boeing 787 and Boeing 777-9 long-haul aircraft and more than 60 new Airbus A320/321s in the next three years alone,” they wrote.


As Reuters notes, the revival of the use of this craft by Lufthansa and a number of other airlines – including Singapore Airlines and Qantas Airways – comes barely two years after the COVID-19 pandemic saw many carriers consign their A380s to the ground for storage.

Sounds and looks great. But with my experience with luftansa I would avoid avoid avoid. 
After 4 weeks of the incident I'm still traumatised.. i relive it . The fear anxiety stress abandonment. Alone. No wonder my body shut down  I'm also  financially burdened. Because of their actions
And still no explanation or contact from the company despite numerous emails .
They should be ashamed but I guess it's money they are after .. 
No idea how they can advertise 5 star. When you look at independent reviews  it's all negative .
Avoid this fancy looking company
