Lufthansa plans to equip its subsidiary Cityline with A321 full freighters, but with Lufthansa Cargo branding. Why make it simple when it can be complicated!

In other news, Lufthansa will be bringing eight B747-400s back into service for the next few years. Starting in 2023, they will be successively replaced by the B777s once they are delivered.

"the ...fleet" or a subfleet? The A359 was targeted for MUC, the following 10 brand new deliveries with F will go to MUC, it is just now that there is a subfleet flying from FRA and maybe the 4 new leases should be based there so that we can say that there will be a subfleet in FRA as well?

Lufthansa had its lawsuit rejected by the European Court of Justice over a legal dispute over taxpayers’ money in the millions for Frankfurt-Hahn Airport.

In other news, Lufthansa passenger numbers are currently around 40% of pre-pandemic levels and it is aiming to reach 60-70% by the end of 2021.

Lufthansa has postponed the Frankfurt to Tokyo Haneda flight to September 2021 and the Munich to Osaka Kansai flight to October 2021. Both will use the A350-900.
