Lufthansa has resumed flights from Los Angeles to Germany, operating three times weekly from Los Angeles International Airport to Frankfurt Airport. The route will operate out of Los Angeles on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays using a Boeing 747-8 with a four-class configuration of First, Business, Premium Economy and Economy classes. In August, flights increase to five times weekly and then ramp up to daily flights in September. By the end of October, according to the carrier, over 70% of the originally planned long-haul routes will be operated by Lufthansa Group carriers. Additionally, 90% of all originally planned short- and medium-haul destinations will be served again. Larry Ryan, senior director of sales USA, said that as the world gradually begins to open up, the desire to travel has increased and there is an ever-growing necessity to see family and friends, as well as conduct important business trips. Lufthansa, he said, is continually evaluating additional connections globally.
