WOW! Starting May 10, Lufthansa will fly an Airbus A380 double-decker between San Francisco International and Frankfurt daily!
This is huge news for frequent flyers and aviation enthusiasts who’ve been watching and hearing about A380 flights at LAX and JFK. The new Lufthansa flight will be the first scheduled A380 flight to or from SFO.
The superjumbo has 526 seats (eight in first class, 98 in business and 420 in coach).
I can’t wait to see this whale of a plane glide over our fair city. I’ll be looking out for LH 455 from Ocean Beach at about 2:30 pm when it takes off and arcs out over the Pacific, then makes a hard right through the gate and aims for Frankfurt. I’ll be looking for LH 454 when it glides in from the North over the city around noon en route to SFO.

What about you? What do you think about the Airbus A380? Will the chance to take the new aircraft from SFO steer you to Lufthansa and away from other carriers?
