Lufthansa clearly seems to be looking at India as one of the markets they want to dish out a good treatment to. After bringing on the new Boeing 747-8i to Delhi (from Frankfurt) as its second destination globally and first in Asia from August 6, now Lufthansa is upgrading its Mumbai service as well. Later in the year Lufthansa will also put the Boeing 748 on the famous Silicon Valley Express route (FRA-BLR).
Back to the Mumbai service, Lufthansa is introducing a retrofitted A330-300 on the Munich-Mumbai-Munich daily service which will have the brand new business class product that everyone has been talking about so much. This one is going to be available on Munich-Mumbai from September 2, and Mumbai-Munich flights from September 3 onwards.
With this update, Lufthansa sure is working well on delivering the latest products to three primary markets in India of BOM, DEL and BLR which give a lot of traffic for travel to Europe as well as North America.
Bravo, Lufthansa. Now time for some other carriers to upgrade their India services as well!
