Lufthansa CEO, Carsten Spohr, confirmed that the airline’s A380 will not return to the skies. Most of LH’s A380s are already in long-term storage, except for one which is still parked at Frankfurt.
This decision was made due to COVID and relatively little demand for air travel. Also, airlines like Lufthansa are focusing on efficiency, so this is another reason why the A340, A380 and 747 are on the decline around the world right now.
However, Lufthansa opted to stay committed to the A340 and the 747, to offer just enough capacity (including in premium cabins) until the 777X and the remaining A350s arrive at the airline.
What do you think about Lufthansa’s decision to retire all A380s? Feel free to comment below!
