Lufthansa is certainly selling six A380s to Airbus

According to information from, Lufthansa> to date

In the summer of 24, LH’s long-haul fleet looks completely different again. Of course, it cannot be ruled out that you will need more Kapa again. But I think it’s unlikely. Especially since the routes for the A380 are also limited. With 5 planes, it’s not hard to think about goals. You can do it reasonably cheaply. Is each additional goal always a little worse and worth it? Of course anything can happen. But with the A350 and B787 fleet growing significantly, demand for the A380 is also limited in terms of Kapa.

Imagine, for example, that the 77x has failed completely. Airbus could then start an A350-1100 program and Boeing a 777neo, with the new engines alone, but it will take a few years before the projects are finished.

If the 779 doesn’t arrive, you’ll fix it with more 787s and then maybe you’ll be forced to do something luckily. If in doubt, you can also use the A380 exclusively in the 1930s if you really need it for the few circuits in Asia and the US where the frequency cannot be easily increased

“The plane will be stationed at the Munich hub”.

And the Frankfurt hub?
As far as I can follow the reports here on, all A350s have also been relocated to Munich and now also all “revived” A380s in Munich.
In the medium to long term, LH appears to be planning long-haul routes to Munich first.
And the consolation for Fraport, Ryanair, has flown away again.

I would say that NOBODY knows what will be updated in 3, 6 or 12 months.

Therefore, most of the planning is like a game of dice, sometimes you win and sometimes you get it wrong.

If my clients want a concrete statement, I always say: “As of today I assume that …”
